montana ski resortsWide-open scenery and historical Wild West attractions make Montana a great summer destination.

But the action really begins to kick up in late November, as the state attracts skiers and snowboarders of all abilities to wide expanses of the Northern Rockies.

Montana features almost 14,000 acres of ski-able terrain and 548 ski trails encompassing some of the most popular ski areas in the mountainous western half of the state.

Names like Big Sky, Big Mountain, and Red Lodge often evoke the names of famous cattle ranches, but the running herds are more likely thousands of winter sports enthusiasts who find pure primal joy in the state's more rugged expanses.

Usually ranked as Montana's best skiing and snowboarding mecca, Big Sky Resort is located near Bozeman offering 3,600 acres of hugely varied terrain with 150 trails and 21 lifts. Along with snowtubing and family friendly "newbie"runs, the combination ticket with nearby Moonlight Basin gets you entry to the largest total ski-able acreage in the USA!

Another Bozeman favorite, Bridger Bowl, is popular with nearby Montana State University students as well as families for an affordable day out in deep white powder, including beginner and intermediate runs as well as the challenging Ridge Terrain containing numerous steep chutes and rock cliffs.
