It's nice to see snow levels far above 100% of average for most of Montana, especially right here in the Bozeman and Yellowstone areas. Shoveling more than normal has been a fair price for excellent conditions at Bridger Bowl and beyond.
Early season snow is inviting to skiers but spotty coverage, no avalanche control and no on-duty ski patrol can make for dangerous conditions. Gallatin County Search and Rescue dealt with a rescue situation at Bridger Bowl on Friday.
From Big Sky Resort to Whitefish Mountain, we've got the lowdown on every Montana ski area this season. Forget searching around...we've got it all in one place. (Keep in mind, some areas will always be weather dependent.)
