With spring upon us, many of Montana’s ski resorts will begin to gear down soon, but not before snow hounds get one last run at the slopes. Most ski areas will be closing or decreasing services on or around April 1. But those who are looking to extend their play as long as possible, take heart.

Here’s some highlights:

  • Big Sky stays open longer than any other Montana resort (until April 24). Be sure to check out its Northern Division DH Race (March 25-26), April Funtacular (April 4), and the Skiers and Riders benefit for Open Land, which supports land trusts in Montana (April 9-10).


  • Moonlight Basin features a BBQ and picnic (March 20 and March 25 respectively), and weekly events that are open to the family. It expects to close April 10.


  • Whitefish Mountain Resort will host its brewfest, third-annual dummy ski and moonlight dine and ski events on March 19. Also, don’t forget the ski patrol fundraiser on March 21, followed by the Sixth-Annual Corn Cup Cross for skiers and boarders on March 26.


  • Bridger Bowl’s ideal snow conditions has extended its season to April 12. Events still scheduled include the Alpine Community Race Series Dual GS, and the Bridger Bump-off Freestyle Comp on March 20. It should be an exciting day for competitors!

Of course, don’t forget about the great skiing and snowboarding at those resorts that are open until April 1.

  • Great Divide hosts its annual Snow Rodeo on March 19, with “rodeo inspired” contests – on skis and snowboards, of course.

Enjoy Montana’s slopes!
