“A winter place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

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 warm months. There are other things to do in Juneau. Look into Tracy Arms trip, or check out teh down town museums.

“Quality ski area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

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 many other great skiers.

“Alaska Zipline tours area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

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.

“Eaglecrest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The only ski hill in town. The menu at Eaglecrest is limited and the food is standard fried fast food but it is good, cheap, fresh and there is plenty of it.
