As written in Lost Trail Ski Area special use permit with Salmon Challis and Bitterroot National Forest, uphill travel is not permitted after Nov 20th end of day. Please reference the specific permit language below.
"Ski trails and other ski area improvements are designed for use by downhill travel by guests utilizing alpine, telemark, skis, or snowboard equipment. These trails and improvements are constructed to be accessed via the resort's ski lift system. Alternative use of trails and improvements are prohibited or restricted for safety considerations as listed below"
"Use of the Alpine ski trail system for alternative winter activities such as uphill access is restricted due to hazard and safety concerns. All users within the Special Use Permit are required to purchase a Season Pass or daily lift ticket for downhill activities only."
Please respect our no uphill travel policy. Lost Trail Ski Area sells powder...skiing & snowboarding is our business. Our feature product is the snow from Mother Nature. That's all we have. Lost Trail has a special use permit to provide untouched slopes for all of our guests. We are fulfilling dreams of floating on a cloud in blissful untouched powder, with endless face shots. We ask all snow enthusiasts that like to hike, skin, or post hole our mountain to please enjoy until November 20th end of the day. Lost Trail tentatively hope to open the first weekend in Dec snow permitting. Let's all enjoy a safe family place to recreate together this season. Remember masks or face coverings are required in our lodges and buildings, ticket lines, lift lines, and where social distancing cannot be maintained.
