Hill Update

Closed for the season as of Monday March 29th. Thanks everyone for a great long- 60 day- season!

We need to fully outline our COVID policies. Our policy is that you need to practice physical distancing and masks are required anytime you are not alone…

  • in lift lines,
  • on the chair lift,
  • in the washroom,
  • in closed spaces,
  • the line for the burger cart,
  • and in any group setting.

Failure to follow these policies will result in you being asked to leave the hill.
Our primary concern is for the safety of our guests and employees. Two things could limit or end our season, one is multiple complaints about non-compliance and the other is if any of our employees are sick or forced to quarantine the hill can’t open. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Questions or concerns can be directed to our GM manager@skitheloup.com or (509) 557-3402.

Stay safe and healthy!

Other Loup Info

  • All transactions for lessons, tickets, snow park passes will be conducted through the ticket window only, as will pass photos. Please wear a mask! Also just a friendly reminder we must be fully operating for reciprocal deals with other resorts to be in effect.
  • No reservations are required for parking or tickets (for now and hopefully for the season). Wear a mask, stay 6′ apart, be kind to each other and most of all have fun!

We continue to plan for operating during the pandemic. We have been getting great guidance from our national and regional ski area associations. We are also closely following state and federal guidance. Things look a bit different at this hill this year- read more about our plans for operating during the pandemmic. Our schedule may change depending on snow, ski patrol availability or other reasons. This is also subject to local, state and federal regulations regarding COVID.

Bear Mountain Luge Experience

Loup Loup was excited to introduce Luge Sledding to the Northwest last season and is indeed the very first area in the Western U.S. to offer Luge Sledding.

Snowcat service to the Upper Bear Mountain trail system provides access for Luge sledders, featuring a ride up of 5 km and more than 1200’ of elevation gain. The Bear Mountain trails are accessible from the Loup Loup parking lot, allowing for Luge sledders to ride more than 12 km of groomed trails.

Visit the Bear Mountain Luge Experience page for details.


Sledding for grown-ups | The Seattle Times

Luge SleddingYou’ve seen it during the Winter Olympics, but did you know that recreational luge sledding is a thing? With a new run at the Methow Valley’s Loup Loup Ski Bowl, writer Jeff Layton put it to the test. The result? A real-life game of Mario Kart that’s surprisingly kid-friendly.
