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.

There is good coverage and skiing at the Pioneer Road. It’s a little soft. The groomer hasn’t been there in a couple days because it’s getting serviced but it still great if not lonely.
Soft snow, Classic track should be ok, Skate softly soft. Groomer removed for service. Will regroom when conditions improve.
