Lolo Pass Professional Review and Guide

"Lolo Pass is in the Bitterroot Mountains, a mountain range 470 miles long. The peaks are 6,000 to 7,000 feet high, with thick, timbered habitat that is home to elk and other wildlife. Lolo Pass carries great historic significance for the Nez Perce Indians, who frequented this route through the mountains from Idaho to their hunting grounds on Montana’s plains.

The Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery camped here in 1805 en route to the Pacific Ocean. Today the pass is a popular ski and snowshoe route astride the Montana–Idaho border. Ski trails travel both states. Surface quality: Weekend grooming on 8 miles/15 kilometers of single track; other trails are skier-packed. Skating sometimes midweek on snowmobile trails."
