Faster Ride to Eagle Peak and Terrain Improvements at Lookout

If you got the chance to check out all of the new terrain and the Eagle Peak quad lift at Lookout Pass last year, then you know how good the 14 new trails with intermediate-to-expert terrain and glades are, and they’re about to get better this season with a faster-moving lift and terrain improvements.

Eagle Peak summit is 500 feet higher than the previously highest peak at Lookout (6,160 feet), and this elevation gain means more snow and higher quality snow for a resort that already has a reputation for one of the deepest snowpacks around and frequent powder dumps. While the terrain addition is a huge game-changer for Lookout, skiers and riders last year may have noticed the ride up on the Eagle Peak quad gave you a little more time than expected to catch up with your chairlift companion. The slower-than-normal lift speed last season was due to a mechanical challenge with the newly purchased lift, says Lookout Pass marketing director Matt Sawyer. “We didn’t want to take the lift offline to make repairs mid-season, but anyone who comes up to ski or ride the new terrain this year will get to experience a full-speed ride to the top,” assures Sawyer. Lookout continues to make other improvements to the Eagle Peak terrain addition. “We’ve cleaned up a lot of the trails that will allow those runs to be skied earlier in the season, and we removed a lot of dead trees to improve the glades too.”
