Start of the ski season

The ski season at Chief Joseph Pass officially begins this coming Saturday, December 1. There has been over a foot of new snow at the pass in the last week, but we are currently planning on having the main trails starting from Chief Joseph Pass groomed with snowmobiles, but there will not be tracks set. The lower trails, Joseph Creek, Banshee, and Middle Fork still need more snow. The Multi-use trails, Gibbons pass road, will probably not be groomed. Once the season starts dogs are no longer allowed on the ski trails, but are allowed on the multi-use trails all season.
The Gordon Reese Cabin will be open for use a warming hut starting Saturday.
