Local Nordic trails
as of March 31:

Eaglecrest Ski Area loop trails:

The Eaglecrest lower loop currently has good coverage. Another good snowfall at that elevation will extend the skiing. No confirmation yet on post-season volunteer grooming.

Mendenhall Glacier Campground, lake and adjacent areas:

The trails at the Mendenhall Campground were set Wednesday morning. Users reported “it is soft and dirty but skiable.” The lake is no longer safe to ski on.
