No new snow. Temperature at the top of the mountain is 34 degrees with winds around 20 knots, calmer winds and slighter warmer temps at the base. Visibility should be good everywhere. The summit could get some cloud cover. Light and occasional wintry mix expected here and there throughout the day. Grab the right jacket and get up here!

It's good on and off groomed trails. Temps haven’t gotten cold enough for the snow to firm up. Conditions all over are nice and soft spring-like, corn skiing. The lower mountain base is patchy below Hooter and around the Ptarmigan base. Once you get above there, the snowpack is much, much better, so don’t judge it by the parking lot view!

All chairlifts are running. Ptarmigan and Black Bear close at 3:30pm, the bowls closing at least 30 minutes before last chair.Hooter and Porcupine close at 4:00pm. All mountain services are open. Mountain Lift is be serving hot drinks, soup, and sandwiches out of the Eagle’s Nest. Roll Back Weekend is set for March 5th & 6th. The Eaglecrest Retail shop is selling T-Shirts for just $13.

The thought for the day comes from Rudy Garmisch and the ski flick Hot Dog, and reflects on our lower mountain snow cover – “You people. You may ski on zat side of ze hill or on zat side of ze hill, but stay out of ze meedle.”

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.
