Downhill Skiing:
Know Before You Go

It goes without saying that things are still a bit out of the ordinary. Before you head to the slopes for some downhill skiing fun, know before you go. Our ski areas have adjusted safety regulations to make sure you have an authentic Montana ski experience and stay safe, too. Be aware of mask requirements indoors while on the mountain. You might also find limited access to indoor spaces, and chairlift/lift-line restrictions to accommodate physical distancing. Just make sure you check each ski area’s website for full rules and restrictions before you get there. Also, please stay in bounds at all ski areas.
