Well...Snowboal is a GREAT mountain if you like steep deep tree skiing. The bar at the base of the hill, "Last Run Inn" is a classic mountain bar with some of the best wood stove pizza's I have had. Great place to meet great local missoulians! I have been to most mountainsd in the US and overall I put the Bowl in my top 5 for great powder turns, always untouched lines(if you know where your going), and great local people to hang with. This is Montana in a nutshell for me! Warning: This mountain is not for the timid....if you are not an expert skier...try Lost Trail.
