Lookout Pass received the most snow in the world this week.

That’s what news outlets are reporting today, after the small ski area, located along Interstate-90, received 6.5 feet of snow in the last week, mostly between Sunday and Tuesday.

On Monday alone,  the ski area reported 27 inches in a 24-hour period, which some media reports say is the biggest 24-hour hour dump in Montana this season.

Lookout is reporting 96 inches at the base and 175 inches at the summit.

Here’s a cherry on top …  season pass holders at ANY other ski area get to ski and snowboard free on Thursday and Friday at Lookout.

I love being the bearer of good news!
