KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: With Covid-19 changing the landscape at ski areas all across the country some practices have changed at Ski Lookout too. We want you to know these changes in RENTALS - TICKETS - LESSONS & PARKING so you can plan effectively how to make the most of your days on snow. We are so looking forward to kicking Covid-19 to the curb, but for now we all need to do the best we can to deal with it. - See details below!
ENJOY: We look forward to welcoming you to the mountain. Over holiday period like MLK & Presidents weekend any area worth their snow should be busy. It's no different here. So please show patience and compassion to our staff and fellow guests.
RENTALS: Now opening at 8 am over weekends & 7:30 over holiday periods. Due to Covid-19 challenges we can only allow a few guests into our Rental Building at a time. Therefore guests are having to wait outside prior to entering the building to get equipment. If you're renting equipment please come and establish your position in line, and know you can also purchase your lift ticket at the same time you are getting your rentals.
We also want you to know we now have 2 & 3 consecutive day rental packages available. This option allows you to keep your equipment overnight so you don't have to go thru the rental process the next morning. Please inform the cashier you want a 2 or 3 day package at time of purchase. You'll enjoy a modest savings on your 2nd and 3rd day rental rates.
We have a few sets of Season Long Rentals pkgs. available for frequent visitors. Ask the Rental Manager, Evan and he'll see if you can rent that specific package for the season. Season Long Rentals are based upon size & availability.
TICKETS - RESERVATIONS FOR LIFT TICKETS ARE REQUIRED for Sat. & Sun. of MLK Holiday, Jan. 16-17, 2021. Why to better manage our Capacity & Parking at a time when we know the mountain will likely sell out. Check back Saturday afternoon to see if we have any tickets available for walk up purchase on Sunday. Sat. is sold out. If we don't sell out via reservations we will sell remaining tickets via walk up at the ticket booth.
Want peace-of-mind, or traveling a long distance to visit and want to guarantee you'll have a ticket regardless of what time you arrive. Then reserving your lift tickets in advance is the way to go. Be sure to finalize your reservations a minimum of 24hrs in advance of our 8 am opening for the day you want to visit. CLICK HERE TO RESERVE LIFT TICKETS!
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE SELLING LIFT TICKETS WITHOUT RESERVATIONS TOO (Just not on Holidays):
We'll have a supply of Lift Tickets available for sale at our Ticket Windows at the start of every day (Except MLK & Presidents weekend HOLIDAY). Unlike most other ski areas in our market you can actually buy a lift ticket at the ticket window at Ski Lookout Pass most weekends and midweek. BUT know these tickets are sold on a First-come - First-served basis. We know not everyone can plan that far ahead, and we want you to come out, enjoy the snow, and return time and time again. Please arrive early if this is your plan. Tickets, if available, go on sale at 8 am on weekends, 8:30 am Midweek. Midweek days have many more lift tickets available and we encourage you to plan your adventures midweek if you can. You'll enjoy the mountain with fewer people and lower prices midweek.
SKI or SNOWBOARD LESSONS: Lesson availability is understnadably limited over holiday periods and prime season weekends, as many have already made advance reservations. If you don't have a confirmed reservation we'll do what we can to accommodate your needs, but we may not be able to meet your desires.
The lesson staff is understandably very busy each morning, so they may not be able to answer the phone or return most phone calls till later in the afternoon - early evening. Please review our offerings on the website so you know what will work best for you. Then email or call 208.744.1234 x15 for lesson availability. Leave a detailed message stating the date you want a lesson, the lesson type, age of participant(s) and if skier or snowboarder. We also encourage all guests to consider taking a lessons midweek, non-holiday, when we will have more availability!
PARKING: Understandably choice spots will fill up early on weekend & holidays. We want to make the most of our parking so we ask that if you have friends you are comfortable traveling with that you try to carpool to save spaces. We also ask that you park where our parking attendants designate. Please look for their guidance when coming into the lot.
IF YOU HAVE FLEXIBILITY PLAN YOUR OUTING FOR BEFORE or AFTER THE HOLIDAYS!
Why - You'll enjoy a very different, more relaxed and less crowded experience.
