For an old-fashioned wild-west ski trip, there’s no better place to visit than Deadwood, SD. This National Historic Landmark in the Black Hills Territory is ripe with history and classic western charm. Home to one of the last great rushes in the country, this small Midwest town was a haven for outlaws, gamblers and gunslingers. 

Legends like Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane are even buried here. Still today guests are rushing to experience the culture, but rather than pick axes and pans, they're packing skis and boards. 

[R459R, Terry Peak Ski Area], located just eight miles from Deadwood, is home to South Dakota’s only two high-speed detachable quads. After a day on the slopes, head into historic Deadwood for music, beer and wild-west inspired attitude at the Old Style Saloon No. 10. Or step upstairs for more comfortable intimate dining and a glass of wine at the Deadwood Social Club. Build your own lodging package through Black Hills Vacations and save on lift tickets.
