Updates from the Mountain

Hello from Eaglecrest, this is Emily with your mountain update. It turned into a beautiful bluebird day up here this afternoon, with a couple of clouds in the sky and temperatures of 35 at the base and 29 at the top. We’re also seeing a couple gusts of wind across the mountain.

The forecast is calling for much of the same tomorrow and ptarmigan, hooter and porcupine will operate from 9-4. All mountain operations will be open, the snow bus is running and we are open daily until march 26th for spring break. Get ready for an amazing day on the mountain tomorrow and stay in touch with us at and on social media. See you tomorrow at Eaglecrest, Juneau’s Winter Playground.
