A few words on the Snow at Eaglecrest Ski Area

Eaglecrest Ski Area has no detail snow data, but is located in the extremely stormy climate of the Alaska Panhandle. Eaglecrest is at 1,200 - 2,600 foot elevation on Douglas Island near Juneau, and thus likely receives considerable rain along with its abundant snow. This is a minor issue for the locals, who can sit out the wet weather and wait to ski the next week’s dump. It does, however, make planning a big trip involving air travel here more of a gamble. Most non-local visitors are likely on the way to the heliskiing based in nearby Haines.

Accumulation and Preservation

Early season accumulation should be far above average. In the absence of rain, snow preservation should be good into March at the 58 degree latitude.
