Juneau: Eaglecrest Ski Area Closed December 14 for Avalanche Mitigation Work
AkGlobe News/10222826

Eaglecrest will be closed this Wednesday, December 14, to uphill traffic. Ski patrol will be running a full round of avalanche mitigation work with explosives. Everyone must be off the mountain from 6 a.m. until 1 p.m. For the safety of Eaglecrest staff and users, the mountain must be clear of any unauthorized users.

The National Weather service is calling for a winter storm watch beginning Sunday night, December 11 through Wednesday, December 14. These conditions combined with the recent freeze-thaw cycle could destabilize the snow, causing avalanches. Please allow ski patrollers to work on the upper mountain and steer clear of the area.
