Because there’s nothing really like coming down that slope to see the endless white of snow around you, and the mountain ranges in the distance. Skiing is one of the best parts of the winter, but also, it’s an activity and sport that can be enjoyed year round. And springtime is as perfect as any to grab your skis, and shred powder.

Eaglecrest Ski Area
On a remote island in Southeast Alaska lies a ski experience unlike any other. With 640 skiable acres, four double chairlifts, and 36 named runs, Eaglecrest Ski Area has both the terrain and ski experience for all levels. If you’re looking to learn, the award-winning Snowsports Schools will teach you everything you need to know. The island itself—Douglas Island—is about 12 miles from downtown Juneau, and averages about 300 inches of snowfall per year. That gives you plenty of powder to work with. Tickets for an individual day pass start at $52, and the season runs from December to April.
