Terry Peak's celebrated Fat Tire Music Series, is continuing into March. It's become a tradition at the Peak and is held in the Nevada Gulch Dark Horse Saloon each Saturday running through March 6. Stop in for a foot-stomping good time, and, of course, enjoy a Fat Tire beer with the entertainment. There are always door prizes to be given away and a chance to win a pair of skis from Peak Sports.
Lange Termes, who performs Feb. 20, has built a solid reputation throughout the area as one of Montana's premier talents. His storytelling style of music incorporates both folk and blues. He has been compared to The Boss (Bruce Springsteen) with his personal tales and the characters created in his music.
Performing Saturday, Feb. 27 is 6 Mile Road who brings their high energy bluegrass music to the Dark Horse.
Dan Sherrill brings acoustic reggae/rock music to the Dark Horse Saturday, March 6, bringing the end to the Fat Tire Music Series this winter season. He has opened for the Spin Doctors, Collective Soul, Living Dred, Slaughterhouse Rootz, and Big and Rich to name just a few. His fans call him Wyoming's Marley.
Terry Peak has over 30 runs - some up to two miles long - four chairlifts (includes two high-speed quads), a halfpipe, and freestyle terrain park. It offers skiing and boarding for all levels, and the biggest vertical drop in the Heartland. With a 1,100-foot drop, it's true mountain skiing and riding.
Terry Peak can be overlooked by Heartland skiers planning a western trip. That is a mistake. There are 80-some gambling joints in the nearby mountain town of Deadwood, and the gaming offers a big plus for skiers and riders; low prices for lodging and dining. Just don't give it all back at the tables.
