Snowbowl has some surprisingly long and challenging runs for an area that is so close to town (Missoula)! If you are in the area you will definitely want to experience the slopes at Snowbowl. The one negative I will mention is that the last mile or so of road up to the lifts is pretty rough. C'est la vie!

I snowboard all over, especially in Montana. Snowbowl is one of the biggest headaches around. Do yourself a favor and stay away unless there is a lot of fresh snow. Then its almost worth it because the staff are a pain in the but. Constantly getting kicked of the lift because your ticket isn't perfectly placed or is removable.

Took my 3 1/2 year old daughter to Snowbowl for ski lessons. The instructor Madison was wonderful and Irelynn had a great time and can't wait to go back. I was amazed how much a 3 y/o could progress in such a short time. can't wait for Irelynn to have her next lesson with Madison maybe this weekend.

Snowbowl is not a "resort" and that's exactly what we all love about it. It's like stepping back in time when skiing was about the skiing: the excellent terrain, steeps, bowls and trees. Back in time when skiing was about real people and kids with huge smiles. Not the flash, the glitz, the shopping, the crowds, the rich tourists. It's... More

I like Snowbowl for it's close proximity but I think it's over priced for the lack of runs,how slow the lifts are and this is not a hill for beginners. However, in the summer they have a great folf course although you will have to try to decrypt the map. If your a mountain bike rider this is a great... More

We went for a wedding and the view was really neat. The drive up to the resort gives you some great views of the mountains. We had the reception at the lodge and then stayed the night in the rooms there. The rooms are really small, but they are for skiing so really you are not in them much. I... More

We visited here in July. Obviously, there was no snow and only a workman visible. Officially, it was closed. But it looked fascinating. I would like to see this during ski season. The drive to Snowbowl offered some fantastic views.

It's a quick drive from Missoula for pretty good skiing. It's a very simple place which is what I love about it. It's about SKIING, not about being pampered. Every time I've gone, the skiing has been great! There may only be one place to take a lunch break, but believe me, it's great! There's nothing like some edamame, pizza,... More

Snowbowl is nice that it is right by Missoula, but it's not much of a ski resort. The price is very high for usually not that great of snow, and the mountain can really get crowded later in the day. Afterwards the day can really improve by visiting the bar for some food and local beer. Just avoid Tamarack beer... More
