Eaglecrest Ski Area to close Thursday for rock blasting

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Eaglecrest Ski Area will be closed to all pedestrian traffic on Thursday, July 23, for blasting.

    Eaglecrest contractor Alaska Juneau Construction will be blasting the upper mountain material source located at the bottom of the ski trail Inside Passage.

    The mountain will need to be clear of all public by 6 a.m. July 23 and will only be reopened once the blast is complete and everything is clear.

    The freshly blasted rock will be used for Eaglecrest’s ongoing trail construction activity around the mountain related to the City and Borough of Juneau COVID-19 Conservation Corp work program.

    Once the mountain reopens, all hiking and biking users are asked to yield to construction machinery for the duration of the summer trail construction season. This is for the safety of the trail construction crew, contractors, and recreationists.
