Good coverage. Remove skis at two points. Firmer/icy in a few places especially in the beginning but great skiing still. No wax classic for the dirty snow.
The N. Douglas pioneer road is groomed when conditions permit. It is a fun hilly 3.5 mile (5.6 km) ski to the end of the road. Due to the rough aggregate on this new road, skiers should watch for sharp rocks (and remove them when possible). This trail is accessed just 1/4 mile shy of the end of the N. Douglas Highway. The parking area at the gated trailhead is NOT plowed. If you park on the highway, please park as far off to the side as possible. Juneau, AK 99801.
