Loup Loup Ski Bowl, Omak

#17 of 18 in Winter Sports in Washington State
How many ski areas are not for profit organizations? The Loup Loup Ski Bowl is one of the few. Located between Twisp and Okanogan just off Highway 20 @ Loup Loup Pass, the Loup Loup Basin is just a short trip from the Methow or Okanogan Valleys.

Offering 1,240 vertical feet with 10 runs ranging from beginner to expert. The mountain is serviced by a Poma fixed grip quad chair lift, installed in 1998 by an amazing community effort. A platter surface lift and a beginner rope tow give sliders a chance to practice their skills without going to the top. The Loup Loup Ski Bowl also offers 23k of groomed track set Nordic trails from beginner to expert as well as tube rentals on the weekends.

Beginners of any age will appreciate the un-crowded gentle slopes, the fully certified ski school with all levels of Alpine, snowboarding and Nordic lessons. The Loup Loup Rental Shop offers snowboards and alpine ski equipment rental. Our old school (1969) day lodge has a rock fire place, a view of the mountain's runs and food & beverage concession.

Weather permitting, The Loup's typical season runs from mid-December to mid-March. Standard days' of operation are Wednesday (in January & February), Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9:00AM to 3:45PM. During Christmas week the Loup Loup is open approximately December 20th through January 5th, with the exception of Christmas day.

From a child's first day out on the snow to a powder hound's search for the fluff, the Loup Loup Ski Bowl is the biggest little mountain in the Northwest.

  • After having skied here several times in the past and really enjoying the retro feel of the area, we bought season passes as we have moved to the Lake Chelan Valley. What's not to like; small crowds, ...  more »
  • I liked managing the kitchen..took ALOT of scrubbing and cleaning but got it done. They eliminated the grill/ deep fryer...aiming for a grab & go style menu. They wanted more of a yippy gluten free menu which was hard to do with NO extra storage...no way to keep things fresh.( due to days of operations) and only A FEW people asking for it. I tried a variety of foods only to find out I'm not going to have the chance to experiment with what the customers REALLY want! As I'm not getting re hired as kitchen manager this season. Thanks to all the customers that gave me the chance. Good luck with the next kitchen manager and the new menu.
  • Fun and great place for all levels of skiing or snowboarding
