Alaska’s Eaglecrest Ski Area has enjoyed 29 consecutive days with snowfall, and the National Weather Service’s Juneau Office is forecasting even more snow for the next seven days!

Since January 26, the mountain, which is owned and operated by the City & Bureau of Juneau, has received over 137” of snow, more than 11 feet in a span of 21 days!

Eaglecrest’s average annual snowfall over the past ten years is 320″, including a record season in 2011-12 with 640”. The 2019-20 season total is now over 280”.

Juneau is a coastal city of 30,000 residents in remote Southeast Alaska. Although there are daily flights from Anchorage and Seattle, the city is inaccessible by road. Travelers must arrive by plane or ferry.

When the snow is this deep, Eaglecrest is one of Alaska’s best-kept secrets with big mountain terrain, 1620′ vertical drop, 640+ acres, impressive backcountry access, untracked powder, and hardly a lift line!

It’s a local’s only mountain located on Douglas Island, only a 15 minute drive from Downtown Juneau. Adult Season Passes can be purchased for as little as $449 in the preseason, and lift tickets are only $58.

Regular operating hours are Thursday to Monday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Eaglecrest is open daily over Christmas and Spring Breaks (Dec. 19 – Jan. 6; Mar. 19 – 30).
