Blacktail Mountain is located above the town of Lakeside along the west shore of Flathead Lake. The ski resort is unique in that skiers and riders will experience a top to bottom run before even riding their first chair. Surrounded by 1,000 acres of National Forest, you will find 24 runs covering 200 skiable acres. There are three chairs as well as a handle tow that cover a vertical drop of around 1,440 feet. Blacktail Mountain benefits from 250 inches of annual snowfall.
