Ski season is kicking off this weekend in Montana! Because Big Sky got 24” of powder recently they are doing a 1-day opening TOMORROW. Saturday November 7th, Big Sky will be open from 10:00am-4:00pm. They will spin the Swift Current High Speed Quad and the Explorer Double. According to their website only the Mr. K trail will be open. However, a Facebook comment says that they are working on other trails. Lift tickets are $49.00 for adults, $39.00 for Juniors, Seniors, and college students, and $19.00 for youth. Sky Card holders save $5.00! Season Passes are apparently valid to use according to Facebook.
After opening day tomorrow the resort will be closed until their planned opening day on November 26th. 19 long days away!
Great Divide Ski Area, near Helena, MT is also doing something with their snow this weekend. Great Divide has excellent snowmaking that they are putting to good use. They take pride in being the first Montana ski area to open every season for the last 10 years. Great Divide will have a terrain park open this weekend for those who are willing to hike. The park will be open 4:00pm-9:00pm on Saturday (under the lights), and Noon-4:00pm on Sunday. Rates are $5.00! They are also saying lift-served skiing in the next week or two. Let’s hope so!
