Alaska's Eaglecrest Accepting Applications for Elementary School Children Beginners - Learn to Ski Weekend 1/26-29


For Immediate Release: January 12, 2017

Eaglecrest is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 35th annual Learn to Ski Weekend on January 28th and 29th. Learn to Ski Weekend is a great opportunity for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders  in Juneau who have never skied before to come to Eaglecrest and learn a new skill while enjoying their local ski area. A random drawing of the applications will select the 40 winners to receive bus transportation, ski rentals, lift tickets, ski lessons, and lunch both Saturday and Sunday.

Through generous sponsorship from Mendenhall Auto and Subaru, Eaglecrest has been able to continue the tradition of Learn to Ski Weekend and encourage the youth of Juneau to experience the outdoors while learning something new.

Jeffra Clough states, “We’re thankful for Subaru and Mendenhall Auto and their ongoing support in this program. Over the past 35 years we’ve taught over 1200 youth how to ski, and many have gone on to be patrollers and instructors in the industry.” Nick Svinicki, a former participant of Learn to Ski Weekend and a current instructor and coordinator of school programs at Eaglecrest says, “this program taught me to love sliding on snow at a young age and I’m excited that we can share that with future skiers.”
