Lookout Pass-Idaho/Montana Border-Thursday

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

We had good snow, then some rain , then some more snow.  Lookout is a small area on the Idaho-Montana Border 50 yards off Hwy 90.  Ten inches, pics taken thursday.  6 of us go up in Oct and cut brush on a pretty steep area that is hidden by a Lodgepole Pine forest approach.  Can't tell you where but we have been cutting brush for years and now getting some pretty good line.  The skier is my bud Van, stopped Chemo a week ago and doing well.

 

Inbounds area in the trees backside-fun.

We went there two years ago! My brother loved skiing there while in college at WSU because it was ridiculously cheap. We had tons of fun--no crowds and good conditions. Very nice!

Cutting brush in that country is definitely earning your turns.icon14.gif

I may head up there tomorrow. Boomer's Fridays at only $22 for the day. Supposedly another 10" last 24 hours (as of 3 hours ago) so conditions should be nice. And we might even get a break in the clouds tomorrow.

Six of us with chainsaws are finally making a dent er/line in the brush.  Really steep terrain, pictures don't really do the steepness justice.  Fun day, good snow, even some sunshine.
