“Ski like it's 1959! Awesome.”
Reviewed 21 March 2011

I loved this place...the tiny lodge has all the ambiance of a roller rink (shag carpet walls) and the hill has one creaky old chairlift that you can hear from the parking lot. The little hill offers a lot of fun terrain for beginners up through expert (yes, real expert terrain at a podunk hill) and a peek into olden day skiing -- no crowds (I mean NO crowds), walk 30 feet from the car to the lodge, friendly lifties, and just a really laid back groovy vibe. It's the exact opposite of a scene. We found good snow in the trees and got worked just skiing half a day -- for $20 each.

Make no mistake -- it is in no way a resort. You're not getting a massage, a hot tub, on site lodging or anything even close here. You are getting dirt-cheap skiing and lots of untracked terrain, plus the low stress of keeping track of your family on one lift.

It's not really on the way to anywhere, otherwise I would feel a little guilty sharing this secret place with the world, but I know only a few brave people will make it out of the way all the way to Maverick. It definitely needs a little boost in business to keep rolling though, I think there were maybe 20 skiers on the mountain the Sunday we were there.

Drop by, and make sure to stop at Bannack Ghost town on the way back out.
