Updates from the Mountain

All good things eventually have to come to an end and the ski season is no exception. Eaglecrest is now closed for the 2017-2018 season. We would like to thank the entire community for a good season and your ongoing support this winter. Enjoy your spring/summer and we hope to see you back on the mountain soon!

Hikers are urged to use caution as you may encounter snow cats, snow mobiles and other machinery on the mountain at any time.
