Mt. Eyak Ski Hill to reopen
Cordova skiers and snowboarders will finally be able to hit the slopes. According to the Cordova Times, the Mount Eyak ski hill is expected to open this weekend if the weather permits. The area’s towers and chair lifts had been buried in snow due the recent winter storm that occurred two weeks ago. According to Mount Eyak Ski Area General Manger Dan Branshaw, crews had made significant progress in digging the towers out from under the snow
Branshaw says the towers suffered no structural damage during the storm. He says crews have been removing snow around the towers in order to operate the chair lifts. The Mount Eyak ski area is slated to open tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday from 11 A-M to 4 P-M.
