Powder to the People at Lookout Pass

Girls-on-Shred_FB_girls-in-the-tent

MT ID border in the FoodcourtOn the border of Idaho and Montana is a powder haven with incredible snow, short lines, and lift ticket prices that will make you swear you’ve traveled back in time. Then again, a quick stroll through the historic lodge of Lookout Pass does indeed feel like walking into a snow globe time capsule. But keep going and you’ll see that Lookout Pass, while rooted in history, is a mountain with the future front and center.

An easy drive from western Montana and Spokane, it's surprising that Lookout Pass doesn't attract more crowds, especially considering its deep powder tree stashes in the new expansion terrain. The simple answer is that Lookout Pass is not part of any mega networks. But aHA! there’s an opportunity… bring your current season pass from anywhere in the world and enjoy a half price, full day, regular rate lift ticket Monday-Thursday. Speaking of Thursdays, bring a buddy and get 2 lift tickets for $75. Ski or ride for free on your birthday (Marketing Director Matt Sawyer might even sing for you) and the list of deals goes on.

Where Lookout Pass stands above the timberline from the rest, is by directly addressing two major quandaries of the snow sports world. With deals designed to make getting on the snow more affordable for you and your crew, and programs to make passing down the culture part of the experience. On both counts, look no further than Girls on Shred.

6 girls of the Lookout Pass Girls On Shred eventGirls on Shred is a project based in Missoula, MT that focuses on providing snowboarding and ski clinics to women, non-binary individuals, and trans people in Montana and Idaho. Through free clinics and meetups (like this one at Lookout Pass in early January), Girls on Shred creates a welcoming and supportive community for budding shredders. These meetups go beyond just lessons, as they provide an opportunity to form friendships and build confidence when facing new challenges. Girls on Shred cultivates a non-competitive and joyful atmosphere, where skiers and riders of all skill levels can come together. Partnered this year with the Mineral County Rec Club, Girls on Shred also offers action sports gear to those in need, making snowboarding more accessible and inclusive.

In a 2019 interview, event manager Sam Veysey Gibbons said about skating and riding “It’s kinda rare to run into another girl without coordinating meeting her” and says the typical rules– no friends on powder days, shredding to the max, go big or go home– don’t apply to Girls on Shred days. “It’s really freeing. It’s fun, and I always walk away with new friends and sore cheeks from smiling and giggling.” Girls on Shred is building community and making snowboarding accessible by offering an easy going introduction into an often intimidating landscape. Come for the fresh jams and stay for the hot cocoa at their next event at Lookout Pass on March 24th.

As if that wasn’t enough, Lookout Pass also just kicked off their 8 week free ski school for all skiers and snowboarders age 7-17. 77 years and counting, the non-profit FREE LESSONS program is the longest running free ski school in the country; providing a free lesson and a free lift ticket during the lesson. If Lookout Pass has been under your radar, you’re not alone. But now that you know, spread the word because the oldest ski area in Idaho is also the carving edge of the newest generation. On weekends, get there early because the lots fill up fast, or take advantage of another one of this hidden gem’s hidden gems: camping out in the lower lot.
