"We're darn fortunate to be open," said Snowsports Education Director Jessi Spencer. While most of the state's ski areas fret about having enough coverage, Blacktail is unique. You drive to the top of the mountain and start your day by skiing down the mountain to catch the lift back up. While their new pro-designed Indepedence terrain park is still under construction, skiers and snowboarders are whooping it up—including off groomed in the glades. "We've got really good snow," said Spencer. "We're rocking and rolling up here."
