Loup Loup Ski Bowl


How many areas do you get to know everyone by their first names? The Loup Loup Ski Center is one of those areas. Located mid-way between Twisp and Omak on Highway 20, the Loup Loup is just a short 30 minute trip from the winter playland of the Methow Valley, and provides all of the fun and security of a private ski hill without all the cost. Offering 1,240 vertical feet with 10 major runs ranging from beginner to expert, the Loup Loup keeps all its skiers and snowboarders satisfied.

The hill is serviced by a year-old Poma Quad chair lift, installed in 1998 by a large community volunteer effort that brings short lift lines and quick trips to the top. Another Poma surface lift and beginner rope tow give snow lovers a chance to practice their skills off the beaten path. Runs are groomed nightly by tiller-equipped snow cats, with plenty of off-piste adventure just outside the major runs. Beginners of any age will appreciate the uncrowded gentle slopes, the fully certified ski school with all levels of downhill, snowboarding and cross country lessons, and a full service rental shop offering snowboard, demo skis and kids rental. The day lodge comes complete with a cafeteria and a spacious view of the mountain base.

Off-slope Fun
The Loup Loup also provides 25k of groomed cross-country trails from beginner to expert to telemark, with another 50k only 5 minutes away. They also have a tubing area and tube rentals.
