Overview
More
Eaglecrest Ski Area on Douglas Island just 12 miles from downtown is Juneau, Alaska's community owned ski area. The area offers four chairlifts, and over 640 acres of skiable terrain. Eaglecrest is gives you a big mountain experience with a small mountain feel. Facilities also include a professionally staffed Snow Sports School, Rental and Repair Shop, groomed Nordic Trails, and the Eaglecrest Grill. Eaglecrest is Juneau's Winter Playground. Winter is our favorite time at Eaglecrest but we do admit summer is a beautiful time on the mountain. No chairlifts operate but hikers and bikers can explore the mountain on the summer trail which meanders up the mountain and offers great scenic views.

Hiked their trails in the summer. The trails are well maintained and it's nice to have a free thing to do. The views from the top are nice. Definitely do this if you have time. Hoping to come back this winter for skiing.

We hiked multiple trails around the day lodge during the off season for skiing. Beautiful forested trails. A bit of a drive from Juneau.

Glad you made it up for some summer fun! We are 15 minutes from Downtown Juneau, but it's a beautiful drive and well worth it!

While you can't depend on the snow you can expect the staff to be amazingly helpful and kind. The snowsports school does an amazing job teaching kids and the books2boards program is perfect for this town.

This is a nice easy wide-trailed hike to do in the summer, with rewarding view to the west. We picked blueberries along the trail. Some small ponds and shade made this a great hike for a summer sunny day. Up and back not a loop....More
