No dogs on EC nordic trails

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!

Lower Loop Update

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.


The Eaglecrest crew has outdone themselves on the Upper Loop. The entire loop is groomed to perfection. Perfect corduroy, perfect classic tracks. They made all kinds of new connectors and route changes. You can ski for hours and never ski the exact same loop. Trickster is groomed for uphill traffic, or take the chair. Get you pass and get up there for some of the best nordic in Alaska!
