JUNEAU - Eaglecrest will be open today, Dec. 18 with three of the four lifts operating. The Platter and Hooter Lifts will operate from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Ptarmigan Lift will operate from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Eaglecrest Snow Bus will operate on the weekday schedule. The Rental Shop will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Snowsports School will also be offering lessons.
"We are excited to operate on Friday. We had planned to not operate to give us an extra day to fine-tune the Black Bear Chair, but that process is coming along so well, that we feel we can both fine tune Black Bear and operate the other three lifts," Kirk Duncan, eaglecrest general manager, said.
Eaglecrest will start its holiday schedule starting Saturday, Dec. 19. The mountain will be open daily through Monday, Jan. 4 except for Christmas Day.
