Loup Loup Ski Bowl is a ski area located in the Methow Valley of Okanogan County, Washington, midway between the towns of Twisp and Omak on Highway 20.

The ski area's season generally runs from late November or December until April, but is only open four days out of the week, and on holidays. Loup Loup offers ski and snowboard lessons, rentals, and also children's programs.

Loup Loup has been recognized as a safe ski area with short lift lines, polite skiers, and reasonably priced food by Seattle Post-Intelligencer.[1]
