This is a no frills ski "resort" that is great for families..The prices are reasonable, they continually have more snow than mose resorts in Spokane area, and offer free ski school with quality instructors. Our kids went through it and it was fantastic.. Waits at the lift can be long when the classes are in session

There was plenty of powder and lots of different runs. No lines for the lifts and generally not too crowded. Bought season passes for next year, can't wait to go back more often. Wish we hadn't waited until the end of the season to go.

We made a quick trip to Lookout Pass. We were intrigued by it being on Idaho Montana state line. Gorgeous mountain and views. Kind of fun to purchase a snack in Idaho and eat it in Montana. Wish we would have had time to try skiing.

Lookout Pass Ski Area is where many locals learned to ski. It has three lifts that serve several runs from beginners to expert. The front side is the Idaho side and has some challenging runs (Bonanza is my favorite). The backside is the Montana side and has one good blue cruiser (Rainbow Ridge) and two blues that have some challenges... More

Traveling with our two daughters from Texas in our RV. Late spring visit. May 31. First of all don't expect much in the way of signage or customer service when you find the trail or lodge. I had to call for directions and I had printed off the website details before trying to find out where I was supposed to... More

Their rates are the most competitive, and the snow was nice. I took my grandkids, 4 & 6. They had a good time. Compared to high speed quads, it's a let down, otherwise it's a winner.

I have been over this pass several times, and always enjoyed the beautiful mountains. This trip was special, however, because the snow covered tress were absolutely beautiful. The mountains appeared to be dusted with powdered sugar. The view was outstanding.

New lift opens up a ton more terrain and alot more vertical. Best place to go when the powders deep! Next year when they open another chair will have as much terrain as Schweitzer! Have Fun!

Passing the the mountains at such a high elevation, the views, and the drive itself. In the summer, the ski area offers other ways to use the facility. I just drove there for the view and as a preview for winter, as this will be my first winter in the area
