New Terrain and Lift added at Lookout Pass


Located atop the crest of the Bitterroot Range, straddling the state line between Idaho and Montana, Lookout Pass averages 400 inches of snow per year. There’s a good chance that number will increase as the ski area expands into the higher terrain of Eagle Peak this winter. That expansion, off the backside of the mountain and mostly on the Montana side of the state line, will also nearly double the footprint of Lookout’s skiable area. Lookout may be growing, but one thing that will never change is its hometown charm that has been attracting loyal skiers and boarders from Spokane to Missoula since 1935.

NEW FOR 2022-2023

There will be plenty of new runs to explore this winter as Lookout Pass opens the most epic expansion of their history—500 new acres of skiable terrain in the form of 14 new runs. A second quad lift will carry guests to the top of Eagle Peak, off the backside of the existing ski area, with 1,650 total vertical feet. The new runs will challenge both intermediate and advanced skiers. 


If you want a skiing or snowboarding experienceaway from the crowds and without all those expensive bells and whistles, Lookout Pass is the place for you. It is an easy drive down I-90 from Spokane to the mountain. Take Exit 0 located on the ID-MT border. “We’re not a destination resort with on-site lodging and all the congestion that comes with that,” says Matt Sawyer, Lookout Pass’s director of marketing. “Lookout’s always been a family-friendly, local ski area with a fun vibe.”
