MULLAN, ID — Lookout Pass opened up for the season over the weekend.

Skiers began heading down the slopes Saturday at the Lookout Pass Ski and Recreation area on the Montana/Idaho border.

The resort was able to open for the season after heavy snowfall of nearly 2 feet on Friday. They are open again on Monday until 4 p.m. with two lifts running and 14 trails in use.

It is one of only 12 U.S. ski resorts that have opened to date this winter and among 15 resorts currently operating in North America, according to a news release.

Lookout officials say their COVID-19 protocol and planning helped over 550 guests enjoy the mountain for opening day.

It should be noted that early season conditions exist with thin areas and obstacles and skiers should keep that in mind and bring equipment that matches the current conditions.
