We bundled up and enjoyed watching our grandchildren ski down the easy slopes. We were impressed with what the children had learned from their instructors. Most impressive to see what kids can learn do.

Since we were at Eaglecrest Ski Area during the summer it was nice to take the drive out to the area on Douglas Island and take in the beauty Mother Nature has provided along the way. We didn't have time to walk but enjoyed going to see the area and the improvements. A must to visit during the winter months... More

Great Price. Did my first ski lesson there. Staff very knowledgeable and patient. Prices are very cheap compared to other ski resorts areas. I enjoyed the day there.

Eaglecrest is a pretty great ski resort. While not the biggest mountain they have decent lift ticket prices and the place is very well maintained! They also host a lot of events so check out their calendar before heading up!

Aside from Eaglecrest, I have skiied at Altenmarkt in Austria, Purgatory in Colorado, Mt. Baldy in So. Cal, NorthStar in No. Cal, Jay Peak in Vermont, Whistler in BC, Snoqualmie in WA, and Hilltop and Alyeska in Alaska. I think Eaglecrest is by far my favorite. Perhaps it is because I started skiing there and I knew the mountain well,... More

...our local mountain! It's typically amazing snow and zero lift lines. Nice laid back atmosphere and you feel like you're part of the EC family when riding.

I'm not a skier, but my wife and I have driven up the mountain just for the views. It's prettiest on the way back down, when you can clearly discern the silty stream coming into the ocean from the Mendenhall Glacier melt off. There's a progression of tree species as you ascend to full elevation, and back down to sea... More

Average because it is really best for skiing, not for warm weather visits. This is Juneau's ski area. It is really not a destination in non ski times unless you want to do a zip line. Since you need a car to get there, or have to pay for transportation if you are on a cruise, skip it in the... More

Eaglecrest is a very good ski area, with the best downhill opportunities (ski and rreat groomed X-C ski trains also; lift lines are short. From the top you can see water on both sides. The access road is ok, and there's a bus because it's about 7 miles out of town. This has produced at least one Olympic medalist and... More

Not enough snow for skiing, but the drive there was an opportunity to get out of the downtown cruise ship area. Enroute, I noticed a colorful fence made of old skiis. The zipline company uses some of the ski facilities.
