Lots of significant improvements the last few years here at Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area.
This NEW Eagle Peak Terrain is awesome and offers 1,650ft of total vertical when skied all the way back to the base of chair 2. A nice mix of Upper Intermediate and expert terrain as well as some nicely gladed trails await.
