SKIING — Lookout Pass Ski and Recreation Area is opening its lifts Friday to take advantage of 8 inches of fresh snow on a base up to 20 inches deep, Phil Edholm, ski area president announced minutes ago.

“The majority of the front side of the mountain will be open with top to bottom skiing and riding off Chair 1 plus the beginner area,” he said, noting that coverage is good and snow was still falling at 11 a.m. today.

Lifts will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday with reduced ticket rates, but full services.

Additional lifts and terrain will be opened as conditions allow, he said.

After Sunday, we will reopen on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day and continue through the weekend.”
