What could be better than riding a gondola/chairlift high into the Rockies, with terrific views of Glacier National Park, and then getting to ride downhill all the way back to your starting point? That s the experinece that’s waiting for you at The Big Mountain Ski Resort above Whitefish, Montana.

The Big Mountain features approximately 20 miles of marked trails; 70% of those trails are single-track, with the remainder being service roads for the ski area. The summit of the Big Mountain Ski Area is at about 7,000 feet; getting to the top the old-fashioned way would be quite a workout. Before starting your ride, do a thorough check of your dropouts and brakes, then enjoy the winding eight-mile descent!
