The best "little" ski area in the world, Eaglecrest is Juneau's community-owned ski area located 12 miles from downtown on Douglas Island. The ski season here runs from early December through mid-April with legendary Spring skiing.
Juneau, Alaska's capital city, is only accessible by air or water with no roads leaving town. It is cut off from the rest of the mainland by a huge icefield (daily ferries are available). No need to worry about crowds and lift lines here!
With 31 trails covering 640 skiable acres, there is abundant terrain, including groomed trails, glades, open bowls and ultra-steep faces. There is also a tubing area and snow terrain park. Our terrain park - featuring tabletops and jumps, is located on the lower mountain. Eaglecrest gets abundant snowfall, yet extremely cold temperatures in the temperant rainforest of south-east Alaska are uncommon.
