“Attention to Detail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

This is a great place to learn, a beginner and for kids/family. They pay attention to the slopes. If you see something wrong, or someone who may be hurt they are on top of things. Great place for a day out!

“Very economical ski trip for our school with plenty of runs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We took our 6th and 7th grade classes to Discovery for a field trip and it was excellent. It was not crowded at all and the rates were reasonable. There are plenty of runs and they have some jumps for snowboarders. The lodge was spacious and had plenty of food and tables.

“Family friendly and no crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

We skied Discovery Basin this winter again, and we like the place because of the short lift lines and the friendliness of the operators and staff. Spring skiing is better than pre-New Year's Day.

Lift tickets are inexpensive for a half day at $29. If you have a pass from any other Montana ski area you get the full-day pass for a half-day rate. And seniors 65+ ski for $19. We like that!

The chalet is redone with on-premise burgers and salads and the bar is always good.
