Eaglecrest Master Plan

Project Background

Eaglecrest Ski Area in Juneau, Alaska developed a twenty year master plan that identified multi-season recreation opportunities to provide enjoyment and healthful activity to Juneau and its visitors, while maintaining and enhancing the qualities for which Eaglecrest is highly-valued.

Located on Douglas Island just 12 miles from downtown, Eaglecrest is Juneau’s community owned ski area with 4 chairlifts, and over 640 acres of skiable terrain. The area currently includes a professionally staffed Snow Sports School, a full-service Rental and Repair Shop, the Eaglecrest Grill, and 6 kilometers of groomed Nordic Trails. Eaglecrest has between 50,000-60,000 skier visits each winter season. Current summer uses include a commercial zip line, service as a staging area for commercial bike tours, and use by community residents for hiking and other recreation.

The Eaglecest Master Plan identifies new and enhanced multi-season recreation and commercial uses that are potentially feasible for the area, will increase resident and visitor use of the area, and meet the community’s vision for compatible uses at the mountain. The draft plan also includes criteria to guide the Eaglecrest Board of Director’s decisions about priority projects for the ski area to pursue, and how to respond to any recreation and commercial uses that may be proposed for the area in the future. The community's opinions about how Eaglecrest should be developed in the future were obtained through a telephone survey of 450 Juneau households, an on-line survey open to the full community, and emailed/written comments submitted during the planning process.

The master plan will guide Eaglecrest's development and decision-making through 2030, with an update every five years.
