Lookout Pass Mullan
It’s all about the snow!
Other ski areas say they have great powder skiing, but Lookout has scientific proof. Forest Service and NOAA records confirm that Lookout Pass is blessed with light, dry powder earlier and more often than any region in the state—an average of 400 inches a season! And because our slopes face northeast, all that great snow is protected from wind and weather. Lookout has NEVER closed due to inclement weather!
