The Holidays are upon us and the skiing is great!!
Christmas has come early for Eaglecrest skiers and riders in the form of over 3 feet of new snow during the past week setting us up for the best holiday break skiing and riding we have had in years. The whole mountain is open with powder and packed powder conditions mountain wide. Looking ahead there is more snow in the forecast beginning Christmas Day. In the meantime we have two days of blue sky and sunshine to enjoy before the next round of snow. Make plans to come up to Juneauís winter playground during the holiday break to enjoy all the snow and fantastic conditions.
On the operations front the Black Bear Chair will open for the season on Saturday, December 24. We will be operating all four chair lifts daily for the duration of winter break from 9am to 3pm. We will be closed Christmas Day and then open daily from December 26th through January 9th. The new snow came quickly and there is a lot of it. The grooming team will be working to get more runs groomed and I expect to see the list of groomed runs grow larger on an almost daily basis. The Lower Nordic Trails are all groomed out and set up for both skate and classic skiing. It is great to be skiing the Lower Nordic Trails for the first time in 2 seasons! All other operations are open including the Eaglecrest Grille, Retail/Repair Shop, Rentals, and the Snow Sports School. More details on all operations can be found on www.skijuneau.com.
Have a Happy Holiday and we look forward to seeing you soon.
