What's new at Lookout Pass
Here's what’s new at Lookout Pass for 2014-2015.
I-90 AT THE IDAHO/MONTANA STATE LINE – Last winter Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area won accolades for incredible snowfall and family-friendly service. With legendary powder and the best snow quality in the region, we are also committed to a great grooming product. A new Pisten Bully Edge snowcat
has been purchased with delivery scheduled for early November. 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. Additional planning and environmental sudies are currently underway.
A new 14,000 square foot base lodge is projected to start construction during the summer of 2015. 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 the Boarderline (front side), Rolling Thunder and Huckleberry Jam terrain parks, including features where tricks can be performed in plain view of guests relaxing on the deck. Lookout’s terrain park manager, Chuck Schmidt, also has a “natural themed park” and some special new features up his sleeve … stay tuned!
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 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 2014-15. In January and February the mountain will be open six days a week, from Wednesday through Monday.
