GoFundMe Community Challenge

Go Fund Me Every dollar counts and moves us closer to our goal of a new Lodge for Winter 2020/21. Please click the GoFundMe button and support the Loup with your “Community Challenge” donation.

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.
