Lost Trail Ski Area Opens Thursday
Lost Trail Ski Area will open Thursday, December 3rd, to begin the season. Not a huge amount of snow on the hill, but enough to grab the skis and snowboards and head on up the south end of the valley. Highway 93 is in beautiful condition and will stay that way through the weekend. The ski area's normal operating hours at 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Weather permitting, the hill will be open from now until April 4th.
COVID-19 has, of course, caused some changes in operation this year. All the crew on the hill are required to sanitize prior to each shift and those who don't feel well are required to stay home and not come to work.
Other changes due to COVID-19 require you to think ahead about preparations as you go to the ski area. We took a look at the Lost Trail website and you should, too. Here's a general review.
For the public:
By the way, the Retail shop is newly renovated with lots of great stuff, but again maintain the social distancing. One last thing, if you're visiting from out-of-state, please adhere to your local health officials and the rules for the state of Montana, too. If you feel sick, don't come to the ski area.
As always, check their great website for the latest snow conditions and other information. Think snow!
