[VIDEO] Undiscovered: Eaglecrest, The Homegrown Alaskan Ski Area

SnowBrains |

Undiscovered: A Homegrown Alaskan Ski Area is a short film by Steep Motion Films that documents the hidden gem of the Pacific Northwest and quite possibly the most under-the-radar ski area in the nation: Eaglecrest.

Two professional skiers, Sophia Rouches & Delilah Cupp, travel to Alaska for the first time with hosts Mark Landvik & Mark Rainery, two professional snowboarders, and Juneau locals. Together, they experience the joys of exploring an untracked powder paradise hidden in plain sight outside Alaska’s remote capital city.

Eaglecrest is a community-owned ski area with big mountain terrain, plentiful snowfall, and hardly any crowds. Seattle and Anchorage are the closest major cities, each over 700 miles away. Getting to Juneau requires a two-hour flight or a multiple-day road/ferry trip, but once you’re here, you have all the amenities of a 30,000-person city AND endless powder days at a locals-only mountain.

  1. Excellent video. Really well shot and edited, and well presented. It’s gotten me interested in Eaglecrest, for sure. It’s reminiscent of that intimate skiing in the ‘60’s when places like Aspen were like Eaglecrest. And, today, we have the skis that let you ski that fabulous deep powder.
