For Immediate Release
Juneau, AK - July 27, 2017

The East side of Eaglecrest including the Summer Trail (Service Road) will be closed to uphill and downhill traffic from the base of the Black Bear Chair to the top of both the Black Bear and Ptarmigan Chairs on Tuesday, August 1 from 10am – 6pm so crews can blast rock out of the area above the Throat. During the closure the top of the mountain will be accessible via the Hilda Valley Drainage or via the west side of the mountain.

“Since August 1 is the start of Deer season, we wanted to get this message out to all hunters as well as hikers and bikers” said Jeffra Clough, Director Sales/ Marketing. “The closure will not affect Pittman’s Ridge or any of the area outside the ski area boundary”.

The rock will be used for the Ptarmigan Upper Ramp project.

Signs will be posted at the Eaglecrest Base Area, bottom of Black Bear Chair and top of both the Black Bear and Ptarmigan Chairlifts. Staff will be available during the closure to answer any questions. Eaglecrest would also like to remind the community that hunting is not permitted within the ski area boundary.
