Who Is Ready For Snow! Check Out These Photos From Lookout Pass And See What's New This Year

Posted: Updated:
KHQ.COM -It's almost that time of year! To get you all in the mood for the colder weather and snowfall that will inevitably be here in the coming months...maybe even weeks...take a look at these beautiful photos from Lookout Pass!

What's New At Lookout This Year?
  • Huckleberry Jam Terrain Park is being relocated to the opposite side of the run and will be laid out for ease of use and for better flow through the park.
  • The entire park budget was spent on new features for the beginner park. This will allow a wider array of skiers and snowboarders to try the park in a way less intimidating environment.
  • The teaching area will be modified and sculpted once there is snow to utilize a Terrain Based Teaching style in conjunction with PSIA/AASI techniques. So what does this mean? Faster learning, more fun and less falling. That's extremely important when starting a new sport.
  • Dave Lawrence, currently an examiner and on the National demo team for Nordic skiing for PISA is joining the Lookout Pass teaching staff. This will allow for cross country skiing lessons at any level!
