Lost Trail Pass-
Lost Trail Pass is characterized by dry snow and usually plenty of it. With two state highways running to this pass there is good access to many varieties of skiing from glades, open meadows to steep treed chutes and a few open bowls. The ski area expansion has made much of what was once backcountry now on area skiing. With their closure Mon-Wednesday though one can still have the mountain, all of it all to yourself. The Anderson Mounatin trail leaving from Chief Joseph pass south has some good glade and tree skiing on both southwest aspects and northeast off the Richardson Creek trail area. Touring northwest from Lost Trail Pass along the Montana Idaho border offers easy acces to scenic vistas, good glade skiing on the north and fine open meadows on the south. The largest Peak and descent in the area is from Saddle Mountain at around 8400 feet. All aspects have good ski lines its just a matter of choosing one appropriate to the days conditions. Approach ascents from either the border ridge itself or after a descent north and a bit west into West fork Camp Creek. Beginner to advanced tours exist here.
