Saturday & Sunday, January 26 & 27, selected participants will spend two full days on the mountain having fun and learning how to ski! Thanks to support from Mendenhall Auto, Eaglecrest will provide free transportation, lift tickets, full day lessons, equipment rentals, and lunch.
This weekend is reserved for Juneau area students who have never skied before. Parents may register their child online via skieaglecrest.com/forms. Hard copy application forms will be distributed through the Juneau School District. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a PDF version.
Please read the following information closely before completing your application.
Students will need a warm jacket, snow pants, and one pair of thick socks. Mittens will keep your child’s hands warmer than gloves. It's smart to pack an extra pair in case they get wet. Helmets are provided, but a hat is a good for before and after the lesson.
On especially cold days, it helps to use a neck gaiter or balaclava and goggles to protect from blowing wind and snow. Hand warmers are great too. Have them dressed in layers and pack extra so they're comfortable in changing conditions. These tips will all will keep children much warmer, safer and happier.
If you need to add to your wardrobe, you can shop conveniently and locally at the Eaglecrest Retail Shop, Nugget Alaskan Outfitter, Foggy Mountain Shop, and Second Wind Sports.

1. I understand and agree that skiing, snowboarding and related activities are Hazardous and that injuries are common and ordinary occurrences during these activities. I agree to assume all risks of death or of injury to any part of the user’s body while using the equipment.
2. Alpine Ski Equipment- I understand that proper bindings settings or stance depend upon the accuracy of my statements about weight, height, age, skier type and stance on this form. I have confirmed that the binding release/retention settings or stance on this equipment correspond to those stated on this form. The ski-boot-binding system is designed to release the boot from the ski when certain forces reach preset values, but the binding will not release or retain at all times which may prevent injury. All injuries due to unwanted release or retention are inherent risks of skiing.
3. Snowboards– I understand that these systems function differently from Alpine ski bindings and will not release in falls or accidents. I understand and agree that these systems do not protect against any type of injury and that any injuries resulting from these circumstances are inherent risks of the sport.
4. I understand and agree that certain risks of skiing and snowboarding may be reduced, but not entirely eliminated, by taking lessons, by following “Your Responsibility Code” which is posted at most wintersport areas and by using reasonable care and common sense. I further understand that a leash or other runaway prevention system must be used with all skis and snowboards at all times, including while riding lifts and while carrying snowboards on or near a slope, in order to reduce the risk of injury to others.
5. To the fullest extent allowed by law, I hereby agree to release and hold harmless this ski and/or snowboard shop, and all manufacturers and distributors of this equipment, as well as their owners, agents, employees, and affiliated companies, from any and all responsibility or legal liability for any injuries, damages, or death to any user of any equipment listed on this form, whether resulting from negligence or any other cause. I further agree that I will defend and indemnify them if any claim or action is pursued for any injuries, damages, or death relating to skiing, snowboarding, or any related activities involving the use of this equipment.
6. I accept the equipment “as is” and with no warranties, express or implied beyond those stated in this agreement and in the manufacturers written limited warranty, if any.
7. This document is a legally binding contract which supersedes any other agreements by or between the parties, and which constitutes the final and entire agreement regarding this transaction and this equipment. This agreement is intended to provide a comprehensive release of all legal liability which is binding upon and for the benefit of all parties, their heirs, agents and assigns, but it is not intended to assert any claims or defenses that are prohibited by law. If any part of this agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder shall be given full force and effect. The specific legal rights of the parties may vary among different states and provinces.
