WHAT YOU VISIT

Eaglecrest Lodge Alpine Zipline
Upon arrival at the Eaglecrest Ski Area, you'll meet your expert guides, who will equip you with top-of-the-line harnesses and helmets. Then, you'll receive a safety briefing and a general orientation on the course. Experience the thrill of traveling from tree to tree over multiple lines surrounded by spectacular mountain views and over rushing streams. Next, you'll traverse over a suspension bridge while looking down at a salmon spawning stream. No hand-braking is required, so you can enjoy a total hand's-free experience. Next, get your inner lumberjack ready, because you'll have the chance to try your hand at axe-throwing!

Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center
The center provides fascinating information, as well as excellent views of this ever-changing wonder. While there, be sure to watch a brief film about how the Mendenhall is part of the 1,500-square-mile Juneau Icefield.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Each zipline will land you in a tree house platform, where you will have time to capture the best moments and scenery with your camera.

SNACK
Back at the lodge, enjoy a snack while watching a slide show of the pictures taken during your tour.

SHOPPING
Souvenirs are available for purchase in the shop.
