Montana's popular ski area features the "Paradise," a three-mile long scenic trail, and the "Grizzly," which drops skiers 2,000 vertical feet through steep terrain. Beginners will find slim pickings, but the pros will have a blast with the numerous offerings at this 950-acre skiers' haven.

The chairlift operates in the summer for scenic rides, although most of the people we saw on it were bringing their mountain bikes up and riding them down the mountain, which looked pretty terrifying to me. There was quite a bit of wildfire smoke the...More

Closest downhill place to Missoula, unfortunately the lifts belong to the previous century and it is much more expensive then Discovery, Lost Trail or Lookout. Food is much better then all other places and it is not expensive. The trails are mostly all for intermediate...More

This Mountain can be intimidating to a beginner skier, especially during a snowstorm, as the signage on the mountain is a bit scarce to know what run you are going on. As you get familiar with the mountain though, it really opens up and is...More

This is a great location for skiing and snowboarding. The staff are courteous and helpful. The equipment is good. The small cafeteria in the lodge is good as well (very casual staff but pleasant). On the slopes though the signage is really not that good...More
