North Idaho's snowiest spot

                                                  North Idaho's Fourth of July Pass in winter/Ralph Bartholdt

Lookout Pass, the small ski hill on the Montana edge of the Silver Valley, got enough snow this week to turn other area ski resorts white with envy.
With a summit elevation of close to 6,000 feet, the family place - in operation since the 1930s - was named as the nation's snow bowl deluxe after receiving a hefty 6-plus feet of new powder this week.
The ski area offers 540 skiable acres and a lodge that is the second oldest in the Northwest. The hill first opened with a homemade rope tow and targeted passengers on the Milwaukee Railroad.
