Discovery Ski Area is located 90 miles east of Missoula; 23 miles west of Anaconda at Georgetown Lake on the Pintler Scenic Route. Fly SkyWest or Horizon to Butte. From Butte take I-90 to the Anaconda exit. Bus transportation from Butte is available on weekends and holidays. From Missoula on I-90 to Drummond, then Montana Highway 1 through Philipsburg and over Flint Creek Pass.
Discovery has three faces. The front face is the perfect blend of gently sloping runs and more advanced groomed cruisers. Off the Granite Chair, things step up a notch with steeper groomed runs and mogul skiing. And the backside? Well imagine, the Chugach without the costly helicopter ride. Point is, we have great terrain and lots of it. No matter what kind of mountain you like, you just discovered it.
An expert’s brand of thrills served up in a local’s hangout, Discovery is a terrific find that will remind you what skiing in Montana is all about! The north-facing Limelight lift offers some of the steepest lift-served terrain around, while the variety of beginner and intermediate runs on the Anaconda and north-facing Granite lifts provide great skiing for all abilities. Easily reached from Missoula, Butte and Helena, we have beautiful views and uncrowded slopes with enough tree skiing, powder bowls, groomed trails and mogul runs for all tastes. One visit will make you a believer.Discovery Ski Area,
