Discovery is Montana's hidden secret. Once the base is over 25" it is heaven. If less than 25" I don't go. This area has every kind of terrain from rank begnner to XX. When they say XX, believe it.
With fresh powder it is unbeatable. Lift tickets are affordable. The kids have their own program and also can roam the mountain. Don't worry they are being watched, and if they misbehave, it will be time out. The cafeteria has great food and if it is too pricey, bring your own. This is a resort built by skiers for skiers. No big corporate" we only care about our profits" mentality here.
If you are looking for apres ski, or looking pretty in front of the fireplace, don't Ski Discovery. If you want a great skiing experience that will chanllenge you. Discovery is for you. It is about a half hour's drive to Fairmont Hot Springs Resort where soaking in the naturally heated pool and watching snow flakes fall makes the evening.
