“A true winter playground”
49° North Mountain Resort has long maintained a place in Northwest skiing lore. The use of Chewelah Peak as a winter playground began in 1935, when the Forest Service issued a permit for the development of a site approximately two miles west of the present site of today's lodge. The completion of Cy's Hut in 1936 and a rope tow in 1939 firmly established winter recreation on Chewelah Peak. After the completion of the two story Chewelah Mountain Lodge in 1950 and installation of a double chairlift in 1951, the area experienced a dramatic increase in the volume of recreational users and tourists. By 1968, however, the area was forced to close due to the obsolescence of the chairlift and a lack of revenue created by the gradual decline of the condition of the facilities.
