Montana’s Moonlight Basin may have a reputation for the steep and deep, but while the upper elevations drop precipitously from Lone Peak, the lower elevations yield rolling buffed-out groomers perfect for families. This winter, families can get two lodging deals to ski or snowboard at Moonlight Basin.

Moonlight's Christmas lodging special offers a way to get fresh air, snow, and family coziness before the major holiday crowds hit. Moonlight Basin Lodging is running a 25 percent off special for those checking into accommodations from Dec. 20-23, 2012.

You must stay a minimum of three nights, but can stay much longer, if you wish. The 25 percent off deal is good for the duration of your stay, so you can head home for Santa’s arrival or stay through the holidays to celebrate on the slopes. Rates will vary, depending on the types of lodging chosen and the length of your stay.

Families can also get a good deal in the months of January and February. By purchasing three nights of lodging and two days of lift tickets, you can get a fourth night’s stay and a third day of skiing for free. You can also stay longer than four nights if you so desire. 

Accommodations at Moonlight Basin vary from condos and townhomes to cabins and vacation homes. While many of the accommodations include access to the Moonlight Spa, some also include private hot tubs.
