Reviews for Maverick Mountain
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Maverick is a down to earth mountain. I go to ski, and that is what they have. There is no ritz here. Small lodge with food and a bar. Only one double chair but it gives u nearly 2000 vertical. $40 to ski all day. Incredible value. I would take four days skiing here vs one day at other trendy mountains for the same price. I ski mostly blacks and double blacks. The best part of their blacks is the consistent pitch. Some resorts will have a steep section followed by a long blue/green runout. But their blacks on the right side of the mountain are fantastic, long, and consistent pitch. They have some glades, but not a lot. Always can find some tree skiing. The locals said this was a good snow year, apparently snow can be an issue here. But being there is not many people that go here, I found plenty of lightly tracked parts of runs. Also, did I mention parking is so close u could throw a rock from the parking lot to the lift. ... Full Review
Cool, funky little ski area in the middle of nowhere. Skied here on a sunny Sat. in Feb and there were maybe 150 people on the hill. It hadn't snowed in 2 days but there was still powder to be had right on the main runs. Not many really good skiers so the snow stays soft. The coverage was a little thin in places (they don't get all that much snow in a season) but good overall. If there is good coverage then the steep trees right down the front side skiers right of the chair (there is only 1 chair and it is painfully slow) look very inviting. Plenty of interesting terrain to keep anyone occupied for a day or two without repeating runs too often. The carpeted (floor walls and ceiling) base lodge is interesting, mostly because it doesn't reek of mold. This is the kind of ski area that reminds you of why you started skiing in the first place, simply for the fun of it. Great comraderie and a feeling of community.... Full Review
Maverick is an uncrowded ski area that is far from any of Montana's larger cities. After several years of poor snowfall, Maverick had great conditions in 2008. Some nice advanced runs on the north side. Only open 4 days a week, so good powder can often be found on Thursdays and Fridays. The single lift provides 1500 vertical feet of skiing over 270 degrees from the top of the mountain... Full Review
