LOOKOUT PASS - Power problems interrupted skiing for part of the day Sunday at Lookout Pass. But the ski area's operators had the lifts up and running again by mid-afternoon and are promising full operations Monday.
Skiers had been hoping to hit the slopes first thing Sunday morning, but the power shut operations down until about 2:30 p.m.
Lookout managers say Avista, which provides power to the resort, had problems to work out, but managed to get electricity restored by early afternoon. That allowed some skiing before darkness fell.
On the resort's Facebook page, Lookout operators say they gave out vouchers who had purchased lift tickets for the day but weren't able to ski because of the outage. And they advised anyone who didn't receive a voucher to contact the resort.
Lookout managers say they expect full operations, with several inches more of new snow in the forecast Monday with all lifts set to operate. The resort's Christmas season, with openings every day, starts December 19th and runs through January 7th.
