JUNEAU - Eaglecrest Ski Area is offering free skiing and snowboarding to Mt. Sima pass-holders for the remainder of the season at Eaglecrest. Mt. Sima, located in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, announced it would not open for the season due to low snowfall and other issues.
"We want Mt. Sima to continue to operate and provide a valuable service to the residents of Whitehorse in future years," said Kirk Duncan, Eaglecrest general manager. "We feel it is in the best interest of all ski areas to have as many successful ski areas as possible. Eaglecrest feels helping Mt. Sima through this temporary problem will help insure its long-term success. We don't want the residents of Whitehorse to get out of the habit of skiing and snowboarding. In addition, this may be a very good way to fill up some hotel rooms and restaurants."
"Eaglecrest is not only an asset to Juneau but to all of Southeast and portions of Canada as well," Duncan said. "With our record snowfall last year and abundant snow fall this year, Eaglecrest could become a destination area for more than just Southeast."
To receive a complimentary day of skiing or snowboarding, Mt. Sima pass-holders can present their pass at the Eaglecrest ticket window. Eaglecrest is open Thursday through Monday and is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, but will operate daily March 13-24 for spring break.
