Eaglecrest Opening Day Dec. 7
Juneau, AK, Dec. 3, 13 – A flurry of activity is taking Eaglecrest Ski Area by storm in preparation for the limited Opening Day on Dec. 7.
Eaglecrest announced that Porcupine Chair will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to service the Muskeg and Dolly Varden trails. A small terrain park feature will be set up on Dolly Varden as well.
“The snow making system at Eaglecrest is adding nicely to the snow Mother Nature has already sent our way,” says Eaglecrest General Manager, Matt Lillard. “The upper mountain needs a bit more snow before we can safely open it. Our snowmaking crew has done a thorough job creating a substantial snow base for the Porcupine Chair vicinity.”
Lift tickets for adults, seniors, and teens will be $15; youth and children tickets will be $10. Eaglecrest also plans to open the Rental Shop during operating hours, as well as the Eaglecrest Grill and Mountain Lift Coffee with select menu items. The Snow Bus will not be in operation for Opening Weekend.
The Snowsports School will hold beginning ski and snowboard lessons. Advanced reservations for limited openings can be made by calling 907-790-2000, ext. 211
As the snow continues to fall, the Eaglecrest Mountain Operations team will be working hard to open the rest of the mountain, including Nordic Trails.
“When snow conditions are ready, we will be too,” says Lillard. “Until that time, we are excited to welcome skiers and riders back to another excellent winter season at Eaglecrest.”
