02-06-2016 15:25:07:We got 3 inches overnight, and itís been snowing off and on since. Right now itís coming down pretty good in the parking lot. The snowline is well below the Eaglecrest base. Top is 28 degrees with winds around 12 knots. Base is hovering right around 32 degrees. Weíve gotten more than 16" in the past three days, and it is accumulated stacking up at the base.

Off trail skiing is high quality. Lots of new snow and lots of untracked powder. The forecast looks like more of the same ahead, so if you see rain at sea level, you better give us a look and see what itís like up here.

For today Ė Mountain Lift will be serving out of the Eagle's Nest. All chairlift are running. Lifts start at 9am. Hooter and porcupine will close at 4. Ptarmigan and Black Bear at 3:30. Bowls close at least 30 minutes before last chair. Cross country skiing is groomed for both skating and classic styles on the upper Nordic loop, access via the Trickster trail. Low snow conditions do exist on the lower mountain.

The whole month of February our Retail and Repair Shops will have great deals: $10 off full tunes, $5 off edge/wax combos, and T-Shirts for just $13!

The Sometimes Annual Bill Tugman

$1/Ride OR $10 for UNLIMITED rides!

Starting at the top of Ego, this zany course is filled with obstacles and has more tricks up it's sleeve than a magician! Going all day, Saturday April 5th - this course is open to skiers and riders of all abilities!

Who was Bill Tugman?

Bill taught with the Eaglecrest Ski School from 1982-1986. He was killed in a boating accident in 1987. He was known for being a likeable, happy-go-lucky guy who enjoyed having fun. He loved skiing and ski instructing. He was great with kids - probably because he was just a big kid himself!

More importantly, he loved doing goofy things on his skis - the goofier the better! Tugboat Alley was named after Bill Tugman.

The Tugman Race is a goofy way to have fun on skis or a snowboard. The Bill Tugman Memorial Race was started in 1988 by Doug Peel and Terry Hinkley as a way to remember Bill. Each year the course is different but the goal is still the same: to have as much fun as possible on skis or snowboards. With it’s Hoops of Fire, Dreaded Pole Forest, Laundry Chute and Tunnel of Doom, the race is something Bill would have loved.
