Owner description: 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 ski-able terrain. 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.

I went to Eaglecrest for my first experience skiing, it was a lot of fun! The instructors are great and super helpful! There are a couple of different hills to choose from and there's always medical personnel nearby. There is a great beginners deal they have- 3 ski lessons for $120. Will be going whenever I get the chance.

best run is benches glades on west side, get the chicken strips with buffalo sauce. rental shop is congested, bring your own gear. if you cant bring your own gear, it will take at least 2 hours to get your stuff.

We did not go skiing on this trip, just went to check it out. Very pleasantly surprised how large the area is and that folks were still skiing on a beautiful Sunday in late April. We'll have to come back.
