Special Features

The Dan Moller Cabin was built in the 1930s by the CCC as part of a combined effort by the Juneau Ski Club and the Forest Service to develop winter recreation. The ski club operated a rope tow and erected a warming hut. The Dan Moller Cabin was used for overnight accommodations. The area was used for downhill skiing from 1939 to 1975, when Eaglecrest Ski Area was developed just over the ridge. The cabin was restored in the winter of 1983-84 by the Viet Nam Vets, the Taku Conservation Society, and the residents and merchants of Juneau, with the assistance and cooperation of the Forest Service. Note: Cabin is open to public as a warming shelter from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
