No new snow in the past couple days. Temperature is staying in the mid-30s, so we’re still enjoying spring-like conditions with phenomenal corn skiing. Everything is good, on and off the groomers. The weekend should be more of the same, potentially with some of light rain or snow. Low snow conditions do exist across much of the lower mountain. Everything up higher is good to go.

Tomorrow, all chairlifts will run starting at 9:00am. Black Bear and Ptarmigan will close at 3:30pm and Porcupine and Hooter at 4:00pm. Bowls close at least 30 minutes before last chair.

Nordic skiers! If you are an intermediate and above skier and interested in improving your skills, Scott McGee, the PSIA National Nordic Team Coach and one of the highest regarded Nordic coaches in the world is coming to Eaglecrest. We’re offering classic and skate lessons this weekend. Check out our website or call the Snowsports School at 790-2000 x211 for reservations.

All mountain services are open. 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 thought for the day is this – “Winter is not over. Right now we’re just ahead of schedule for spring skiing.”

The Porcupine Lodge is now complete and will be open for the 2015-2016 Season! Staff have moved into the Lodge and will spend the summer getting the building set up for winter! Ticket and Snowsports School sales occupy the first floor of the building along with the Retail Shop and Repair Shop. The 2nd floor is home to the Equipment Rental Shop, Snowsports School Program room, and the Adaptive Instruction office. The 2nd floor also has a classroom that will be used for training and special events.  The classroom will also be available to rent.

During the summer months the Porcupine Lodge is used by Alaska Zipline Adventures and you will find them on the 2nd floor. For this reason the Porcupine Lodge is closed to the public except during office hours Monday - Wednesday 10:00am - 2:00pm.

Plans are currently underway for Porcupine Grand Opening Events. The first event will be Discover Eaglecrest Day on Saturday, September 20! If you are on the mountain this summer stop in and ask us for a tour. We love showing off our new addition to the Base area!
