News from the Loup

••• 2019/2020 SPRING PASS SALE! Begins March 1 and runs through June 30th •••

3/21 UPDATE: Well with temps in the mid-50’s to low 60’s our thin snowpack took a beating this week.

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.
