Skiing above Flathead Lake
Updated: Jun 18, 2019
Just a 45-minute drive from Bigfork and the Swan River Inn is Blacktail Mountain Ski Area, a family-friendly ski area overlooking Flathead Lake. The slopes are north-facing, so they hold their snow all winter long. Plus, that view from the chairlifts isn't bad either.
