Eaglecrest will not be adding extra days of operation during the school closure, but plan to open per its normal operating schedule 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday to Monday and daily over Spring Breaks (Mar. 19 – 30). All Snow Sports School spring break programs will carry on as planned with as much of the gathering times being conducted outside in the open air as possible.

Public health is encouraging outdoor activities; take advantage of the great snow pack. As a reminder, wash your hands, cover your cough, give people lots of room, and please stay home if you are sick. For more information and local news on COVID-19, go to juneau.org/covid-19.
