For mountain conditions and grooming reports go online to or Eaglecrest is closed for snowsports today; it reopens tomorrow, Dec. 12. Dec. 11 skiers should keep an eye out for snow cats and other machinery.

• Eaglecrest Lower Loop:

No new information on Eaglecrest lower loop.

• Eaglecrest Upper Loop:

Upper loop is holding up, though there’s a loss of snow a the base until the area where the mountain bike loop starts off the ski road across the lower mountain. Watch for rocks down low.

• Mendenhall Glacier Campground:

The campground trails have been rolled, and there are lots of frozen human, dog, and one skate ski track as of Dec. 8. Rolled with lots of weight on the roller. If it snows, it should be very good. May be OK to ski, but a little rough.

• Montana Creek Road:

This trail is partly groomed. It has been rolled from the top of the hill to the bridge; the roller could not get across the bridge. It was machine-run until a landslide and back; groomers couldn’t get over the landslide.
