Located on Douglas Island just 12 miles from downtown Juneau, Eaglecrest spans over 640 skiable acres of breathtaking terrain serviced by four double chairlifts. The ski area has a vertical drop of 1,620 feet and offers terrain for all ability levels including groomed runs, wide-open bowls, and glades nestled throughout the mountain. Nordic skiing is also available on the area’s groomed Nordic trails. Eaglecrest is Juneau’s Winter Play Ground and provides skiers and snowboarders a big mountain experience with a small mountain feel.

The area operates from the beginning of December through the second week in April, open Thursday – Monday and closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. During the off-season, the chairlifts do not run but hikers and bikers can explore the mountain on a variety of trails that meander around the mountain.
