Montana Ski Areas
National Park seen from Whitefish Mountain Ski Area
has excellent downhill skiing at more than a dozen ski
areas. One of the reasons I moved to Montana in 1999 was
to take advantage of the great downhill skiing opportunities
on big mountains with lots of snow. And, I must confess,
I haven't been disappointed.
as part of the sites travel guide, I decided to put together
information and pictures of the various downhill ski areas
in Montana, complete with my own little ski area reviews.
those who have visited other "ski guides" on
the net, you'll notice one striking differrence between
this guide and all the others. These "other web ski
guides" generally are just copy and paste boiler plate
information - frequently taken from the actual ski resort
websites. In short, most of these ski guide sites generally
add nothing new.
Montana ski guide, though, is different. All the ski areas
listed below I have personally visited and skied at. All
and reviews is original as are the pictures. In short,
unlike other web ski guides out there, it is my hope that
you will actually find this Montana ski guide useful in
planning a Montana skiing trip.
Montana ski area guide on Big Sky Fishing is far from complete.
As I visit additional Montana ski areas and grab pictures
I'll post them up on the site. However, taking pictures
of the skiing in Montana is not always easy due to poor
photography conditions - thus, it may be a while before
this section is entirely done.
