About An expert's brand of thrills served up in a local's hangout, Discovery is a terrific find that will remind you what skiing in Montana is all about! The north-facing Limelight lift offers some of the steepest lift-served terrain around, while the variety of beginner and intermediate runs on the Anaconda and north-facing Granite lifts provide great skiing for all abilities. Easily reached from Missoula, Butte and Helena, we have beautiful views and uncrowded slopes with enough tree skiing, powder bowls, groomed trails and mogul runs for all tastes. One visit will make you a believer.

SPECIAL EVENTS Thank you everyone for a great season! I know we have some people who will want to skin up and ski with all the new snow so I wanted to relay that we have had quite a bit of wet slide activity early this week in the Limelight area. Be safe and make sure you ski within your limits. Looking forward to seeing everyone next winter.
