Easy to Get to

Nice Ski Area & I like hanging out in the lodge. Easy to get too. Sometimes they have live music on Friday nights which is a fun time.

My son and I had a blast going through our rocks and finding several MT sapphires as well as garnets. The staff was friendly and informative about the area and the best way to go through our dig. Will absolutely do this again!

While my husband and I are not skiers or snowboarders many in the family are. We had a chance to watch the lessons and were very happy with all the staff there. The views are beautiful and the trails have all levels of difficulty. We had a great experience there, and intend to return to the slopes with the little... More

This is the place to take kids to learn to ski - great programs for kids and racing. There are parks for the snow boarders and skiers to hone their skills on the jumps and rails and easy terrain, medium and hard terrain, friendly staff, great rental program and only 30 minutes from Helena!

We got married at The Great Divide in September and I couldn't be happier! The family who owns the hill went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful. They were so accommodating! Not to mention how beautiful it was! Highly recommend that if you are in the Helena area in the winter time to check out this family run... More

Spent a few fun days here. Nothing extreme. Good for newer skiers and boarders. Great location from Helena.

While I've heard that Great Divide has a few rocks, they were covered up this winter! Snowmaking and lights on the lower runs provide a lot of good early season skiing. Great natural powder (on multiple occasions) provided great skiing opportunities on a wide variety of runs, as well as some of the better "tree skiing" I've seen in Montana.... More

EXCELLENT LOCAL SKI AREA! owners/operators work real hard at giving you the BEST skiing for your money. Snow conditions are what they are, but they've done their best to make it great stuff. Excellent variety of runs...try Wild West. Showdown sucks.
