We have skied all over the Pacific Northwest and find that Discovery is our favorite. We are weekday skiers so find that we can ski right up to the lift and make another great run. The groomers do a stellar job of smoothing the slopes and the broad expanses on many runs make it seem like you have the hill... More

We love skiing at Discovery Mountain, the views are breathtaking! The cafeteria makes the best chili bowls and the price won't hurt your pocketbook. We ended the day staying at The Broadway hotel in Phillipsberg, MT.

There are several great cross country ski trails at the Ski Area. There is a separate parking area for cross country trails before you get to the main ski parking lot. This separate parking area allows access to trails on both sides of the road. Most of the trails were groomed as we skied.

If you like skiing, you owe it to yourself to try Discovery when you're in Montana. It's a little off the beaten path, but you won't regret driving the Pintler Scenic Route to get there. Amazing steeps on the backside on a powder day.

The kids both did lessons which they enjoyed but was a little hectic on checkin for kinderski (I think they aren't used... More

About ten years ago, after watching a segment of the NBC television program "The Today Show" I booked a flight to Missoula and "discovered" Discovery Mountain, just a few miles from Philipsburg Montana. As a lifelong skier I yearned to find a mountain that I felt I could ski till I was ninety and not be bored or disappointed. Disco,... More

I always enjoy making a trip to Discovery regardless of the conditions. The terrain is great, it often feels like you have the whole mountain to yourself, and the lifties are always smiling... But this trip, I finally lucked out and got two days of POW! I wish I didn't have to leave!

Was here for a ski race. Race was well run even though the snow wasn't cooperating. Great value and family vibe. Better food than Big Sky's cafeteria. And, as is typical in Montana, everyone was nice.

The skiing itself was excellent...uncrowded and good snow. however... Their website advertised a price of $30 for college students on the 27th of February. When we arrived they refused to honor this price, siting that it was supposed to be the 28th. When we suggested that we would not be returning the owner shrugged and said he didn't care. We... More
