Lookout Pass is a relaxed ski mountain that gets a load of snow in northern Idaho, on the Montana border. Just 90 minutes from Spokane or Missoula - equidistance both ways on I-90, Lookout Pass has a high base elevation in a snowy mountain pass at 4,500 ft. Lookout is just 22 mi to Silver Mountain skiing in Kellogg Idaho. Lookout Pass's distinction of skiing in two states Idaho and Montana adds to the fun.  Lookout Pass proclaims more snow other Idaho ski resort, 400 in, and we concur, so does the US Forest Service and NOAA. We found Lookout's snow to be softer and fluffier (in a side by side Idaho ski snow taste test).

Great get away from the huge resorts. Very easy to get to and usually the best snow in the area. Amenities are only thing it's lacking but great for the small ski hill feeling ... More
