Montana Snowbowl Lodging

Montana Snowbowl is an alpine ski area located 12 miles (19 km) northwest of Missoula, Montana. It is known for long expert "bowl runs" such as West Bowl. The resort is built off a peak named Big Sky Mountain, which has a summit elevation of 7560 feet. Accommodations and lodging might be sparse on the mountain but the vacation rentals, condo rentals and chalet rentals indeed available are rustic and welcoming.

Laying just a short hop from downtown Missoula, Montana Snowbowl is a wonderful ski area that is affordable, receives plentiful snowfall, is laid back and has a wide variety of excellent skiing terrain. Many accommodation, vacation rental, condo rental and chalet rental options are available in and around Missoula.

The ski area itself only has two chairlifts, both double-chairs. The first chairlift, the Grizzly Chair, takes you from the base area up to the ridge beneath the summit. To get to the summit, you then have to ski down a fairly flat cat-trail that leads down the backside of the bowl. From here, you pick up a second chair, called the LaValle Creek double – which will take you to the summit. While on the summit, you get both a great view of the Bitterroot Valley and the Bitterroot Mountains.

The ski area has a very nice and functional base lodge, with a few smaller buildings housing the ski patrol and ski rental facilities. And, somewhat surprisingly, Montana Snowbowl also has some limited slope-side accommodations, vacation rentals and chalet rentals available.

The Snowbowl Lodge offers cafeteria-style dining in the Double Diamond Cafe on the lodge's upper level. A big central fireplace adds ambience. The Last Run Inn has sit-down dining for lunch and dinner and a good selection of regional microbrews. Many more vacation rental, chalet rental and other accommodation options and dining choices, as well as nightlife and shopping, are just down the road in Missoula.

Missoula is located along the Clark Fork and Bitterroot rivers in Western Montana and at the convergence of five mountain ranges, thus is often described as being the "Hub of Five Valleys". It is also refereed to as the "Garden City" and known as the state's cultural center. There are countless activities, events and historical places to explore in and around Missoula.

    Our unit is located on the west side of scenic Glen Lake in a heavily wooded, very secluded and private area. Large windows face Glen Lake giving a spectacular view of the lake and opposite shore. Included in this view are mountains that rise up from the east shore of Glen Lake. Part of your view also includes Therriault Pass. Located at the top of this mountain range, it is a large glacially formed U-shaped pass. Years ago a glacier swept through this pass and down into the valley below where is scoured out the lake bed of Glen Lake. As the glacier receded the waters filled this basin and formed Glen Lake. Glen Lake is a picture perfect mountain lake. It is about 1 mile across and 2 miles long. Periodically you may spot an Osprey or Bald Eagle doing some fishing. Frequently, Whitetail Deer will be seen in the front yard feeding in the morning. We have also seen elk and moose on occasion, but deer are very common. Our Lodge is situated on a 1 acre wooded lot located about 100 yards up a slope from Glen Lake. The lodge construction is called post and beam. The frame of the house was built using huge Engelmann Spruce logs (26 inches to 38 inches in diameter) from Prince George, Canada. All the ceilings are constructed from tongue-and-groove pine planking. The walls between the logs are sheetrock. The massive logs give the Lodge a majestic look and feel and the sheetrock adds a clean and finished appearance. This is truly a very unique and beautiful structure. Construction of our unit was completed in the fall of 2002.
