Why Lookout is your #1 Powder Place:

It’s all about the snow!
Other ski areas say they have great powder skiing, but Lookout has scientific proof. Forest Service and NOAA records confirm that Lookout Pass is blessed with light, dry powder earlier and more often than any region in the state—an average of 400 inches a season! And because our slopes face northeast, all that great snow is protected from wind and weather. Lookout has NEVER closed due to inclement weather!

Families love Lookout!
Lookout Pass was voted the most family-friendly mountain resort in the Pacific Northwest by visitors to for good reason. Our adult weekend lift ticket is just $37—almost half of what you pay at some other places. Juniors, teens and college students save even more, and kids six and under ski free. Our variety of terrain means families can ski and ride together and be comfortable, confident and safe.
