Lookout Pass Ski Area will open Friday

Read about Lookout’s expansion plans in the Sports section on Friday.

Lookout Pass Ski Area will open Friday – the first ski area to announce an opening this season in the Inland Northwest.

The slopes have 8 to 10 inches of new snow overnight, with more coming down today, the ski area said in a news release. Base depths are 12 to 20 inches.

Lookout Pass is located along Interstate 90 at the Idaho/Montana state line.

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, Lookout said.

All services will be in operation. Lifts will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Reduced ticket rates will be in effect.

After Sunday, Lookout will reopen on Thanksgiving Day and continue through next weekend.
