Full review

Over 2000 acres of terrain, small local crowds, and cheap lift tickets make this one of the best family-friendly resorts you'll ever find. It may have THE BEST beginner to intermediate terrain of any resort in the Rockies. Your beginners don't have to be relegated to the bottom third of the mountain like at other resorts and your experts will stay entertained on the backside which is nearly all double-black diamond. The resort has a nice little day lodge with a decent grill and food selection and a picnic area downstairs where you can pack your own cooler. This resort "gets it" when it comes to families. Jackson Hole and Big Sky are great, but they aren't three-times better than Discovery. If money is no object, by all means, choose one of those resorts. But if you're looking for a great and affordable mountain to ski throughout the season, it's hard to beat Discovery.
