“Local skiing”

Great Divide Montana Ski Area
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Enthusiastic, local ski area. Conditions can be variable, but I love having a nearby, hometown ski area

Snow cover can be iffy here. But if you hit it right, and especially if you visit during a weekday, there's plenty of elbow room. Lifts are old style (so be prepared to load quickly, as the chair comes swinging at you pretty fast). But there are no lift lines, and we were all alone on most runs. Make the effort to go over and try the area of the Wild West lift, where there are lots of gladed runs. The facilities at the main lodge are minimal, and food is passable. But hey, for a $40 lift ticket (less than half what you'd pay at overpriced Big Sky) it's worth it.

This hill has terrain for all skill levels. When the powder is deep, adventures abound for the experienced skier.

This a nice inexpensive area to ski. It's close to Helena. They work hard to keep snow on the mountain and it's well-groomed. Varied terrain.

Fun place to go for a quick trip. Nice drive from Helena, not usually too bad. Restaurant can be questionable. Lots of "hands on" food prep. Would be much better if hot dogs etc. were turned and served with kitchen tools, not fingers. I usually bring my lunch.
