If you had the money, would you buy a ski area in Montana? That's the real question.

The weather might be heating up but many are missing the snowy slopes of the ski areas around Montana.

Montana's ski areas and resorts make a lot of money during the winters if there is a lot of snowfall. You are only a short drive away from most ski areas in Big Sky Country.

The ski season in Montana usually ends in early or mid-April because the snow is bare.

What some folks might not know is Montana has a summer ski area.

What does that mean?

This ski area sees so much winter snow that they wait until spring to plow the roads to reach the basin. That means you can shred snow while rocking shorts and a tank top.
