Standing at the top of the lift it becomes clear. MONTANA is bigger than you ever realized. The mountains are bigger. The landscape is bigger. For that matter, the turns are bigger. Quite frankly, the only thing not big at the sixteen storied downhill ski areas, are the lift lines. Tucked into this untracked winter backdrop is everything from amenity-laden destination resorts to honest-to-goodness mom-and-pop ski mountains.
