Montana

When you think of Montana, most likely you think of the vast size of the state, the beauty of the west, fly fishing on the many rivers, and some even think of the impressive skiing the state offers. The breathtaking beauty of Montana’s skiing and snowboard slopes may very well be the last US skiing destination left undiscovered.

What Makes Montana Unique

We’re not talking wimpy mountains—we’re talking about world-class slopes. The states get between 300-400 inches (that’s twenty-five to thirty feet) of snow per year and some of the mountain slopes have vertical drops of up to 4,350 feet. But for some reason, not too many people vacation Montana like they do other ski areas, so you're in luck to be able to ski world-class slopes without the crowds.

Major Ski Resorts

Some of the Montana skiing and snowboard destinations are Big Sky, Bridger BowlRed Lodge, and Whitefish Mountain Resort. Big Sky is the most well-known due to it's massive size, and its grown to gargantuan proportions with the acquisition of Moonlight Basin area on the other side of the mountain. Bridger Bowl, known for developing top skiers, is just outside of Bozeman. For a less crowded experience, check out Red Lodge, a town offering more restaurants per capita than any other ski resort area in Montana. And then there's Whitefish—a ski area in the Glacier National Park with a mountain filled with Conifer trees that get covered with snow giving it that popular ghostlike look. In addition, the state offers more than a few other winter sports and activities like cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, long hikes on snowshoes, ice fishing, sledding, and all the wonders and nature of the west. Take a look at the categories and learn all about getting away from the norm and predictability of skiing with a lasting family vacation and getaway.
