What's new at Lookout Pass
Here's what’s new at Lookout Pass for 2016-2017.
I-90 AT THE IDAHO/MONTANA STATE LINE – Last winter Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area won accolades for good conditions and coverage, in a challenging snow season, and family-friendly service. With legendary powder and the best snow quality in the region, we are also committed to a great grooming product. Our fleet of Pisten Bully & Prinoth snowcats
have gone through an extensive service program and are ready to rock as soon as the snow arrives. Our experienced grooming crew and fleet of five snow grooming machines will insure world class grooming every day we are open. Don't worry, we'll leave plenty of powder on those magical powder days!
Terrain Expansion: Phase One of Lookout’s long-range expansion plan has been accepted by the U.S. Forest Service. Phase One incudes two chairlifts on Eagle Peak, a mountan to the immediate west of the existing ski area, with a potential to add up to 700 acres with 14 new ski runs plus glade areas with a 1,400' vertical drop. Final environmental analysis will be released any day now with project approval expected soon.
A new 14,000 square foot base lodge is projected to start construction during the summer of 2017. The main level will house a new food court, expanded seating, and meeting room space. The lower level will have overnight lodging rooms.
Terrain Parks: Jibbers will discover numerous improvements and upgrades to Rolling Thunder and Huckleberry Jam terrain parks, including new features, rails and table tops. The Rolling Thunder quarter-pipe is 1,111 feet in length, the longest in the nation!
Snowsports School: A higher level of instruction is available at Lookout for skiers and riders of all ages and abilities. Programs include the Senior Workshop on Mondays, Downhill Divas for women only on Fridays and Next Level for intermediate and advanced skiers on Fridays & Sundays. Individual and group lessons are offered every day the mountain is open.
Powder Wednesdays: Lookout gets so much snow we’re adding another day of face shots once again for 2016-1. In January and February the mountain will be open six days a week, from Wednesday through Monday.
