  • Great hill, really solid double and triple blacks in the back. A good advanced hill love it all. The owners and some of the staff are incredibly rude and they don't discount tickets late season like a lot of places but other than that great!
  • I should say its horrible to keep this place to ourselves, but it really is an awesome ski hill with great variety for all levels. Bunny hill to multiple double blacks. The views are incredible (it is Montana, after all), and their cookies after a long day of skiing is cookie heaven. If you dont want to ski, stick around for the food. Yum! Really, the only downside is they REALLY need a larger area for those brown bagging it. They use the same area for donning and doffing equipment. It gets VERY crowded.
