  • This is something everyone needs to experience. It's not a hard ride. Be sure to have plenty of "good light" and a jacket and nibbles along the way. The first tunnel is really dark, cold and wet....bu...  read more »
  • Having skied numerous times in Colorado this is such a refreshing experience. It is easy to park, the lines are short for the chair lifts and the prices are good. The snow has been great this year and...  read more »
  • Because I can't find a way to rate Ride the Route of the Hiawatha directly, I can only give this four stars. I'm not a skier but the summer activity is fabulous. We had a ridiculously good time! We found this biking activity before leaving on a 10 month trip around the US and made a reservation. Little did we know how much fun we would experience bike riding the Hiawatha Trail! We rode through the 1.66 mile long St. Paul Pass Tunnel (Taft Tunnel). It is about 37F in the tunnel year round. Yep, cold, and it’s the first encounter on the trail. We were so cold when we finished I was sure an earache was in my future. It took about a half hour before my hands warmed up too. We rode through 10 train tunnels over seven sky high trestles. The views were fabulous! The day was absolutely gorgeous. We couldn’t have asked for a better day to ride. Next time we would like to try to ride it down and back…yes, that would be about 15 miles back uphill. The grade is about 1.7 so it shouldn’t be a really big deal as long as we are in shape next fall. If you want to come, plan for a summer trip. The bike trail operates June to mid-September. They keep their web site up to date so you can get accurate updates. We recommend you rent their bikes as they get covered in mud going through the tunnels. Also, be sure to wear your bike shorts. It’s a long time in the saddle, about 2.5 hours so denim is not what you want to wear. A little pre-planning can save you a lot of pain later.
  • Lookout is a great little ski area with fantastic views. Usually has good snow early in the season. Beautiful because its honest and not pretentious about what it is and is not. Embrace the simple beauty of a historic Montana/Idaho ski area.
  • Great family friendly resort, shorter run's but have beginner to advanced run's and some great tree skiing and the best powder
  • I learned on this mountain back in 1995, I love this place!! Everyone is so nice here. The small bar they have at the lodge is very friendly and has that small town feel.
  • Always a great time here. The staff is awesome and the views are worth the drive.
