    Things To Do


    Juneau’s “off season” – October through April – may be a sleepy time for the local bears, but we’re wide awake! Juneauites enjoy a vibrant arts and adventure destination during every season.

    Winter sports enthusiasts find challenges at every turn amid snow-clad mountain meadows and stunning downhill slopes, all in postcard-worthy settings. Juneau's winter jewel, Eaglecrest Ski Area, has produced an Olympic silver medalist (Hilary Lindh) and is considered to be "one tough cookie" for even the most expert skiers. Our breathtaking winter landscape is the backdrop for myriad outdoor activities:


    Downhill skiing

    Cross-country skiing



    Ice skating

    Ice Hockey


    Invigorating winter hikes


    Juneau’s rich cultural community comes fully alive from October through April with an impressive array of performing and visual arts to stimulate your senses and renew your spirit. Some, but not all, activities enjoyed by winter visitors include:


    First Friday gallery walks

    Alaska Folk Festival

    Perseverance Theatre

    Theatre in the Rough

    Juneau Symphony
