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.

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

This local ski resort is great for those looking for some good, challenging runs, for reasonable lift ticket prices. They do not have many groomed runs, so beginners and intermediate skiers may not like it. The lifts are old, slow, fixed 2 man chairs- no...More

What are the recommended activities here (aside from skiing) that our family can do? We are husband & wife w/ a 3 yr old son. It's our first time to visit Missoula this coming May 18 & we're looking for "picture-perfect" places. What sort of enjoyment can we do here? Appreciate your reply. Thanks!
