January 2018 Ski Report

Some of the best skiing in the country is in Montana right now!

Bridger Bowl Ski

We have always been blessed with incredible snow here in Southwest Montana during ski season. While some places have good years, and not so good years, the two ski areas near the Lodge, Bridger Bowl and Big Sky Resort, typically have consistently good snow every year. Due to a consistent flow of Pacific moisture, and orographic dynamics (the mountains help too!), it snows a lot during the winter.

This year is no different, as Bridger Bowl (near Bozeman), has received close to 170” of snow since the beginning of November. With a settled base of 70”, there is plenty of fresh snow to enjoy! About an hour south of the Lodge at Big Sky Resort, they are reporting close to 120% of normal snowfall so far this year, and a base ranging from 52” at mid-mountain to 78” up top.

The Lodge is located just 35 minutes to Bridger Bowl, and an hour from Big Sky Resort, and makes for the perfect escape for those looking for relaxation, great food and beverages, as well as friendly faces at the end of a powder day! Click on the following links to check out the latest from both Bridger Bowl or Big Sky Resort.

Big Sky Snow

There is also great opportunities for cross country skiing as well. Both Crosscut Mountain Sports Center and Lone Mountain Ranch offer professionally groomed trails with amazing views! Give us a call to find out more about the endless winter recreation right here in Southwest Montana.
