We have skied all over the Pacific Northwest and find that Discovery is our favorite. We are weekday skiers so find that we can ski right up to the lift and make another great run. The groomers do a stellar job of smoothing the slopes...More

We love skiing at Discovery Mountain, the views are breathtaking! The cafeteria makes the best chili bowls and the price won't hurt your pocketbook. We ended the day staying at The Broadway hotel in Phillipsberg, MT.

If you like skiing, you owe it to yourself to try Discovery when you're in Montana. It's a little off the beaten path, but you won't regret driving the Pintler Scenic Route to get there. Amazing steeps on the backside on a powder day.

Was here for a ski race. Race was well run even though the snow wasn't cooperating. Great value and family vibe. Better food than Big Sky's cafeteria. And, as is typical in Montana, everyone was nice.
