Lookout Pass Ski and Recreation Area will open for the season on Thursday, Nov. 21 at 9:00 a.m. A major winter storm dropped a total of 19” on the ski area over the weekend and more snow is in the forecast.

 The majority of the front side of the mountain will be open with top-to-bottom skiing off Chair 1 with a minimum of 10 runs. Chair 4 “Success” will also be open and the Snowsports School will be in full operation.
“Our groomers are busy packing down the weekend snowfall and conditions should continue to improve throughout the week,” said Phil Edholm, President and CEO of Lookout Pass. “We anticipate open powder, packed powder and freshly tilled corduroy on Thursday.”

Reduced lift ticket rates will be in effect. Prices will be posted on skilookout.com prior to Thursday’s opening.  Additional lifts and terrain will open as soon as conditions allow.
