After a couple of weather-related delays, Juneau’s ski area is open.
Eaglecrest Ski Area will be open daily through Jan. 10 with the exceptions of Dec. 25 and Jan. 7, Eaglecrest announced. The regular operating schedule is Wednesday through Sunday. The opening is Eaglecrest’s largest terrain opening in recent memory, according to the ski area. However, upper mountain terrain is best reserved for experts.
People are advised to wear a face covering due to COVID-19 and dress appropriately for the weather as there are no indoor facilities available or outdoor shelters for warming, the ski area said in a news release.
The ticket office, snowsports school, and ski shop are open with service provided through outdoor windows. All visitors must first check-in at the ticket office window. Advanced reservations are required for snowsports school lessons.
People who want to rent skiing or snowboarding equipment this season, must first book a pre-fitting reservation by calling 790-2000, extension 211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
