Two of us are planning on fine tuning the Eagle Beach Ski Trails from about 10 – 12 today. Will try to do the Methodist Loop as well for the first time.
Nordic trails through the campground in great shape Friday, now with 4+” fresh snow. Thanks to tracksetters! Carpool out north for fantastic skiing under the full moon!

Please remember that Eaglecrest nordic trails are off limits to dogs. If you want to take your dog skiing, go to Montana Creek, Mendenhall campground, Eagle Beach, etc. Or the designated dog loop at EC. But please stay off the lower and upper loop, even when the area is closed. The lower loop is still soft and the skiing is very nice as long as it’s not punched with dog tracks. Spread the word. Thanks!
Just to give everyone an update on the lower loop: I drove a snowcat around a fair amount of the loop with a compactor bar tonight so there should be some ok skate skiing. Unfortunately we need a fair amount more snow before I will send another snowcat out to do more work, there just isn’t enough snow and the risk of damage to our equipment is to great. Until we can get the lower loop open enjoy the expanded terrain at the upper loop.
