Skate skiing up Eaglecrest road

Eaglecrest packed the road on the east side and it is possible to skate ski up to the bowl below the top of the Black Bear chair. Smoothest path yesterday was to head up Sourdough from the bottom of the Ptarmigan chair, then get on the road about halfway up and follow road the rest of the way. Good crust cruising off the road along the way. Be smart and watch for machinery going up and down the mountain and snowmaking on the lower runs!
