Lookout Pass, which sits right on the border of Montana and Idaho, is a growing day-use only resort that has tripled their terrain since 2003. The most recent addition for the ski hill includes their new North Star Lift last season. The double chair serves six new runs—three expert and three intermediate--on the north aspect of the mountain with 1,000-foot vertical drop.
The resort continued their upgrades to the mountain this summer by enlarging their rental shop this summer. "It will allow us to expand our ski, snowboard, and boot inventory," explains marketing director Jim Schreiber. "With the new floor space, the redesign will speed up rental gear pick up and drop off. It should enhance the overall guest experience."
The new rental expansion will also include a new Ski School Sports Desk. "This will provide a convenient one stop location for Learn To Ski Packages and Ski School lesson program choices," adds Schreiber.
Schreiber also says that if time permits, the resort will enlarge the deck at the Summit House Cafe to provide more outdoor seating. The mountaintop cafe, which opens during weekends and holidays, sits where all three chairs converge on the summit. "As all three lifts come to the top, it will allow a nice gathering place rather than returning to the base area," said Schreiber.
The deck is a place to enjoy hot chocolate, soft drinks, coffee, a burger, bratwurst, and outdoor barbecuing when the weather permits along with enjoying the scenery.
