About the Ski Resort

The Great Divide Snowsports Area is located in Marysville, between Montana's Capital City of Helena and Great Falls.

Over the past few years, Great Divide has grown from a local favorite to one of the largest and most diverse areas in the region. Great Divide has added 68 trails and glades of backcountry type terrain to its array of classic ski slopes and remote cornices, cliffs, chutes, and glades.

Skiers and riders will find 137 named trails and five open areas with 1600 acres of "go anywhere" type terrain severed by 5 double chairlifts and one beginner tow.

There are numerous glades and open parks available, and there's night skiing Friday nights.

Friendly instructors will teach kids (3 and older) and adults alike. Free lessons for first-time riders age six and older are offered daily at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. by signing up at the Ski School desk or calling ahead.

A pro shop carrying a complete line of "I forgot it" supplies is on the premises, and lunches and snacks can be had on the mountain. A large rental operation offers shaped ski sets, snowboard sets, and skiboards to fill all your equipment needs.

A number of motels and bed and breakfasts to suit any price range can be found nearby.

To get to Great Divide, take I-15 to Exit 200 between Helena and Great Falls, then west on Montana Highway 279 for 9 miles to Marysville Road, then 7 miles. Great Divide is 22 miles from Helena and 95 miles from Great Falls.
