OK, if you live to ski double black diamond runs, this is not the spot for you. But if you are a beginner or intermediate skier you'll love this place. Why? Great snow, no crowds and varied runs. Great snow, being in Flathead Valley you soon learn that Blacktail most years gets better show than Whitefish Mountain, the big resort... More

Wasn't expecting such a great experience on the ski hill and in the chalet. Steve (owner) is congenial and ensures your visit is always comfortable and pleasant. The ski conditions were awesome, friendly ski hosts, cheap lift tickets, delicious in store made soups and sandwiches at the chalet bar, inexpensive drinks, bright airy atmosphere. Will be back!

We have been skiing here regularly for the last five years. Love this hill! It might not be steep and deep but you can't beat the friendly staff and the lack of lift lines. It's a great hill for families, beginners, and people that love to cruise the groomers

Visited the mountain on a layover day in Kalispell. So glad I got the chance as the mountain is full of great people. Instead of putting on the headphones I ended up boarding all day with a local. The food is not as bad as reviews suggest however it is still a good idea to pack your own. The ski... More

First, you can get discount tickets at the Costco in Kalispell for $30 each. Second, kids 7 and under ski free! Kids in the fifth grade ski for free! (bring a report card or student ID) Rental/lesson packages are very reasonable with an excellent instructor staff. My 7 year old wanted to try skiing after two years of snowboarding, the... More

We drove up to the cross country ski parking area and then took our mountain bikes on the main trail and then on the Alpine trail for a short peaceful ride. After that we hiked with the dogs on the back park of the Alpine trail and walked thru a cathedral of Larch trees that were changing color. The trails... More

Three chair lifts, one rope tow, 2,100 verticle feet of drop. Plenty of runs for beginers to intermediate, only a couple of spots that will challange an expert. $35 for all day adult ticket is a bargain. They close on Mondays, so if it snows any time between Sunday night and Tuesday morning, the powder skiing is great. I have... More

This is a very nice little ski area. Being the north side, the snow is almost always great. Plus it does NOT get the fog that the other "local" ski area will get. It has that great family feeling, everyone is so friendly. Hardly any crowds... just love the area. It also has great deals.

We can take our 4 boys up here and let them have the run of the mountain without worries! The staff is friendly and caring, and the restaurant on the top floor of the lodge is great! Nice not having to worry about snobs on these slopes!

This ski resort is mainly for beginners to intermediate skiers. It's a little weak if you're an expert but not too shabby. There are quite a bit of rock jumps/mild cliffs that were pretty nice. The chairlifts are pretty dingy if you ask me. But the lines for the chairlifts were extremely small. I went on a Saturday and there... More
