Montana's popular ski area features the "Paradise," a three-mile long scenic trail, and the "Grizzly," which drops skiers 2,000 vertical feet through steep terrain. Beginners will find slim pickings, but the pros will have a blast with the numerous offerings at this 950-acre skiers' haven.

The view of the valley from the top of the ski lift

Drove up and all over the place. What beauty! I think I'd like to see it in the winter! Maybe I'll visit my grandson in the winter next time1

We ski here during the winter and always make at least one trip during the summer for pizza. This year we went zip-lining and had a blast! The skiing is more intermediate and advanced than beginner. There are several nice beginner runs though. The view from the top is amazing! In the summer the chair ride is fun and you... More

This is a great place to visit in the summer. Take the lift to the top, and then either ride it back down or hike down. The Last Run Inn has easily the best pizza in Missoula, and you can sit outside and enjoy a cold beer too.

We went to Snow Bowl to check out facilities during off season. We have a freshman at University of Montana. Impressed that there is zip-lines and mountain bike scooters for folks seeking adventure. There is a lodge that has snacks, local beer that serves until 4 pm during the off-season. Responding to a previous reviewer in Aug, 2015 about service... More

I stayed at snowbowl lodge this weekend and the bartender did his best to ruin the experience. We had the entire lodge rented for a wedding for Thursday-Sunday so we were the only guests. Here are a few of the things this bartender did to do his best to ruin our experience but it was indicative of every interaction with... More

Wonderful mountain skiing in winter or recreating in summer. Zip lines have been installed for warm weather fun and amazing vistas.

Such a fun ski area... great food after morning or afternoon runs and a fun social scene of locals. Very rustic "lodge" but that lends a lot of charm. A kind of European ski area feel - or at least a mid-century 60s/ 70s throwback. Also fun to do the mountain bike trails in summer (though quite challenging). This ski... More

Snowbowl is first and foremost for skiing yes, but it's awesome in the summer. You can purchase lift tickets to go to the top and just wander around. The young kids will bring their mountain bikes and ride down the hill, put them back on the lift, and ride back down over and over. The lifts are old school, so... More

Even though the equipment is old, the ski area is vast! The ski parking lot is full but the runs are so open! No skiers and snowboarders running you over. The pizza is hand tossed and made in a brick oven! The beers are only $4!! Prices are super good. I would give it 5 stars but all lifts are... More
