Eaglecrest closed to all users Thursday, July 23

July 21, 2020 – FYI

Eaglecrest Ski Area will be closed to all users on Thursday, July 23 for rock quarry blasting. Eaglecrest contractor Alaska Juneau Construction will be blasting the upper mountain material source located at the bottom of the ski trail Inside Passage. The mountain will need to be clear of all public by 6 a.m. July 23 and will only be reopened once the blast is complete and everything is clear.

The freshly blasted rock will be used for Eaglecrest’s ongoing trail construction activity around the mountain related to the City and Borough of Juneau COVID-19 Conservation Corp work program. Once the mountain reopens, all hiking and biking users are asked yield to construction machinery for the duration of the summer trail construction season. This is for the safety of the trail construction crew, contractors, and recreationalists.

For more information, call Eaglecrest at 790-2000, ext. 214.
