Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Overview

Lookout Pass, located on the Idaho/Montana border off Exit 0 on I-90, is home of some of the best snow, easiest access and most-affordable prices in the region. It's no wonder Lookout Pass was voted the most family-friendly mountain resort in the Pacific Northwest by OnTheSnow visitors. They are also home to the Lookout Pass Famous Free Ski School for kids. You'll find four lifts serving 34 named runs and acres of great tree skiing. But what skiers and riders love most about Lookout is an average of more than 400 inches of light, dry powder snow annually.
