Loup Loup Alpine Ski Area


Located between Twisp and Okanogan on Highway 20, the Loup Loup Pass is just a short trip from the Methow Valley. The Loup Loup brings communities together from Oroville to Grand Coulee and from Chelan to Mazama.

1,240 vertical feet, the mountain (Little Buck) is serviced by a Poma fixed grip quad chair lift, installed in 1998 with an amazing community effort. A platter surface tow and a beginner rope tow give sliders a chance to practice their skills without going to the top. Runs are groomed nightly with modern Bombardier snow cats.

The Loup Loup Ski Bowl also has 23 kilometers of groomed and track set Nordic trails on Bear Mountain, with another 50k two miles away at the Washington State Parks South Summit Sno-park.

Operating days are Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and every day of Christmas holiday week (except Christmas Day) and every day of Presidents Day holiday week.
