A few words on the Snow at Lost Trail Powder Mountain

Lost Trail Powder Mountain has no detail snow data, but has a good snow reputation in Montana. Locals consider overall snow quality second in its region to Lookout Pass. Lost Trail has a particularly strong reputation for powder due to remote location and only being open Thursday - Sunday during non-holiday weeks

Accumulation and Preservation

Early season accumulation should be above average, with perhaps the exception of the steep Hollywood Bowl. Though predominant exposure is east, Lost Trail's elevation range of 6,400 - 8,200 is the highest in the interior Northwest. This makes rain rare, as well as preserving winter packed powder surfaces through at least February.
