Having skied numerous times in Colorado this is such a refreshing experience. It is easy to park, the lines are short for the chair lifts and the prices are good. The snow has been great this year and it is an easy drive to the mountain. The town of Wallace is close by which has some good restaurants for after the slopes. We love skiing here!
Great skiing without the crowds. Lookout Pass. ccbDallas, Trip Advisor

great view! Lookout Pass. Diane S, Trip Advisor
I've skied here many times and it definitely has challenging terrain, and therefore a lot of good skiers. It's also very picturesque in the summer.
Great spot. Montana Snowbowl. parodyf, Trip Advisor
