Skiing above Flathead Lake

Updated: Jun 19, 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.

Jessi Spencer skis the groomed runs at Blacktail Mountain ski area in Lakeside, Montana. Spencer's father, Steve Spencer, started the ski area in 1997.
