Whether you alpine, snowboard, or telemark ski, Missoula's ski resorts will offer you awesome terrain, powder, chutes, and vertical, without the crowds or costs of more popular destinations.
Missoula- 15 miles from downtown Missoula
If you want to play with the locals, this is the spot. This mountain is big, you could ski open to close for weeks and still never take the same line twice. The trails are great for beginners, while the bowls will keep those with experience very happy all day long.
