As some of you know, Danielle and I like to hang out in Montana whenever possible. We love to ski, hike, explore and generally soak up the bright sunny Montana days, and the big sky vistas.
We are within 60 minutes of three ski resorts, Bridger Bowl, Big Sky, and Moonlight Basin. Over and over we choose to ski at Moonlight Basin for a few simple reasons: Customer Service, great mountain, no lift lines, no crowds and just an overall great experience.
Moonlight Basin has great skiing for every ability level. From 40 degree steep headwalls, to gentle green groomers. So many times Danielle and I can find exactly what we are looking for on the many runs at Moonlight.
I did mention customer service as well, everyone is friendly at Moonlight. None of the snottiness I have experienced at other resorts. From the greeters who help direct you when you walk into the resort areas, to the lift operators, to the people serving you drinks - they all are top notch.
I also mentioned no lift lines - you never wait. You ski so much you can be done by 2:00 and be absolutely beat. In Colorado I have had to wait in 45 minute lift lines at Copper Mountain - add that up and you are not skiing very much during the day.
I love Montana, and I love Moonlight Basin. Oh I forgot to mention, the picture above is of my wife just the other day skiing at Moonlight, I think she looks pretty happy.
