From December through March, the Lolo Pass Visitor Center is open Thursday through Sunday from 8:00 to 4:30, Pacific Time. Many people like to visit this area for winter recreation and Winter Recreation Passes are used to help pay for the maintenance of this site.
Winter Recreation Passes are required at all times from December through March. Passes are $5 a day per car or $20 for a season pass for your vehicle. Season and day passes can be purchased in the Visitor Center during business hours or day passes can be purchased at the door after hours (exact change or check required). Passes can also be purchased at:
• The Trailhead
• Outdoor Supply and Rental
• Missoula Ranger District Office
• Lolo Hot Springs on Hwy 12
When the center is closed, travelers can stop by the Powell Ranger Station (Monday thru Friday during regular business hours) 12 miles west of the pass for information, maps and other services. Please contact the Powell Ranger District at (208) 942-3113 for more information.
