Call For Cash: This year we are starting a campaign to raise money to offset ticket prices for youth starting in the 2024-2025 ski season. Once we raise $25,000 all kids up to age 10 will ski free. At $50,000, kids up to age 12 will ski free, and at $100,000, all kids up to age 15 will ski free for one season. This will be an ongoing campaign that will advance our mission to make skiing and snowboarding affordable for every family.

The Soul of Skiing and Snowboarding lives at places like the Loup Loup…
Help us keep it that way for generations to come.

~•  Why Support The Loup?  •~

It is the goal of the Loup Loup Ski Education Foundation to make skiing and snowboarding accessible to all youth.

To that end, we are on a mission to raise enough funds to allow all kids to ski free…all season from any background. This might seem like a luxury, but it’s really about helping to create a better future. Every day, kids deal with a barrage of bad news; the economy, the environment, politics and the list goes on and on. When people are raised with that kind of stress, the likelihood of growing to be a healthy and successful adult inevitably suffers. Being able to get outside and be part of something like skiing and snowboarding gives kids the chance to grow, build confidence and learn to love the world that they live in.

It has been proven over and over again that recreating outdoors reduces stress in kids and adults, and ultimately helps people live a more fulfilled and productive life. Equitable access to activities like skiing, snowboarding, hiking, snowshoeing, and sledding makes the lives of the people that participate in them better. Every year there are fewer small community resorts than the year before, and the truth is that the soul of skiing and snowboarding lives at small hills just like the Loup.

Please help us keep it that way, and show your love love for the Loup Loup.

~•  Loup History  •~

Loup Loup Ski Bowl was founded by Ralph Parks in 1958 at its current site on Little Buck Mountain. The mountain operated with four rope tow lifts and a small warming hut until 1968 when new runs were cut and the Big POMA platter lift was installed. The Junior POMA platter lift was installed in 1972.

The Loup Loup Ski Education Foundation (LLSEF), a public non-profit corporation, assumed operation of the ski area in 1990. Since that time a number of positive improvements have been made to Loup Loup Ski Bowl. In May of 1998, the LLSEF Board of Directors made a commitment to purchase and install the Midway Chairlift from Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, and in 2018 the LLSEF Board of Directors made the commitment to replace the day lodge with a beautiful new lodge for our guests.

Throughout all of these and additional significant improvements, skiers and supporters of the Loup have helped LLSEF realize its goal of providing affordable and high-quality winter recreation for area residents and visitors alike. The history of the Loup is one of community involvement and support.
