Eaglecrest, AK:


Eaglecrest is located on the lower tip of Alaska, just 30 minutes from the Juneau airport. They are so close they offer a “Boarding Pass” giving Powder Alliance pass holders a 4th day FREE if they visit the same day as their arrival. Restrictions apply.  It is one of Alaska’s best-kept secrets with big mountain terrain, 640+ acres, 1620ft vertical, and panoramic ocean views. As you can imagine, Eaglecrest gets the snow averaging 320” per season with a record-setting 640” in 2011-12.

Eaglecrest is a living tribute to the soul of skiing and snowboarding. You won’t find many crowds here.  Travelers must arrive by plane or ferry and are rewarded with untracked powder and hardly a lift line.  Backcountry skiers and splitboarders are encouraged to pack beacon, shovel, probe, and Know Before You Go!  Eaglecrest has impressive backcountry access that is lift-served on operating days.  Regular operations are Thursday to Monday, December through mid-April, and daily during Christmas and Spring Break.
