Winter is our favorite time at Eaglecrest. But we will admit, the off-season is a beautiful time on the mountain. The Service Road to the top of the mountain allows access for bikers and hikers. The hardened Lower Nordic Trail allows access to the historic Treadwell Ditch. We invite you come up for a short stroll along the trails of the lower mountain, hike to the top of the Black Bear or Ptarmigan Chairs or wander through the meadows of the lower Nordic trail.

The Eagle's Nest at the top of Ptarmigan is closed until further notice for much needed maintenance. The restrooms at the top of Ptramigan are open for public use.
