Lookout Pass Ski Area in Idaho and Escape2ski provides info on; vertical drop 1150ft/350m, total trails 34, closest airport 100mi/161km, lifts 4, and more.

Lookout Pass Ski Area is located off Interstate 90, east of Mullan, Idaho. The ski area takes its name from the mountain pass where it is located and borders both Idaho and Montana.

The Lookout Pass Ski Area opened in 1936 after a few ardent skiers built a simple rope tow powered by an engine from an old abandoned car.

The summer of 1982 saw the installation of the first chairlift and in 2003, the mountain expanded by adding more trails and terrain by opening the Montana side of the ski area. This expansion gave Lookout Pass the distinction of being only one of the two mountains in the United States that has skiing and snowboarding trails in two different states.


On the Slopes

  • Lookout Pass Ski Area is comprised of 540 acres of skiable terrain and prime powder glades. Do not let the size of this mountain area fool you, the longest run is 1.5mi/2.5km with amazing fall line skiing and snowboarding.
  • Lookout Pass Ski Area enjoys a continual helping hand from Mother Nature with an average of more than 400 inches of light, dry powder snow annually.
  • Three chairlifts meet at the summit of Runt Mountain, which makes this common area a great place for friends and family to meet. From here, there is a great selection of runs for skiers and snowboards of all ability levels to enjoy their descent to the base.
  • If terrain parks are a must for you, there is sufficient rail, boxes, and challenges to meet all ability levels.
  • Looking for challenging terrain, look no further than the Idaho side (front side) and make your way down, either Idaho Face or Montana Face. Looking for more intermediate terrain, try Golden Eagle.
  • On the Montana side, you will be treated to the trails of Keystone and Whitetail, which offer a challenge to both intermediate and advanced levels of ability.

Off the Slopes

  • If you are looking to experience some of the local flavour, both the City of Kellogg and the City of Wallace approximately 12mi/19km south, have a good selection of quaint hotels, B&B’s, as well as, historic main streets filled with shopping and dining options. Note: make sure to check out the Moose Creek Grill in Kellogg with its cozy country atmosphere, fresh seafood and tantalizing desserts.
  • The daylodge located at the base of the mountain still hosts some of the charming and rustic features that were present when the lodge opened in the 1940’s. Here you’ll find a cafeteria-style grill and deli, along with the Loft Pub where you can relax and share a story or two about your day on the slopes.
  • Lookout Pass Ski Area is a truly great place for families to enjoy all of the charm that this mountain has to offer, including the Downhill Divas Specialty Women’s Ski Program and the Famous Lookout Pass Free Ski School for Kids. It also has some of the most affordable lift ticket rates in the area.
  • While you are in the Silver Valley region; which is known for its history of silver, lead and zinc mining; take time to visit the Bunker Hill Museum, and the Crystal Gold Mine an authentic 1880’s where you’ll find unusual crystal formations native silver and mining artifacts.
