Why choose a trail at Maverick Mountain?

Maverick Mountain Ski Area is an alpine ski area located in the Beaverhead National Forest in southwestern Montana used mainly by the residents of Dillon, Montana . The mountain's lone classic double chair ascends skiers and snowboarders 1450' to the precipice of joy. Twenty four named downhill runs spill to the south, north, and east-facing sections of the mountain. Locals enjoy a host of other unnamed trails and features such as "Battlecats", "Swampy Meadow", and "Old Henry". Beginners and intermediates can choose to exit at a midway station. When weather systems allow a glimpse through the otherwise falling snow, the mountain offers exceptional high-def views of the west facing aspect of the eastern Pioneer mountain range. The area is known and loved for its non-ironic retro style, and no-frills attitude. The iconic ski-culture disciples known as "Bros" are decidedly less commonly spotted at Maverick. Located in the rural Grasshopper Valley, the mountain has little incentive to follow the path of many Montana ski areas that have added a number of bells and whistles to their infrastructure, "New West" decor, and lobbied for direct flights from Los Angeles and New York City. It is not uncommon to see an inordinately high level of western wear on the slopes. A six-foot tall replica statue of John Wayne greets everyone who enters the small, lively bar in the base lodge, and accompanies those who stay until they are bleary eyed. Carpeted walls in the lower level of the lodge buffer the clamor of joyful children from those enjoying the bar upstairs. The clientele also tends to sport a disproportionately high level of Patagonia-clad locals due to deals scored at the nearby Dillon Patagonia outlet. The annual Bartender's Cup brings out the soul of Maverick in full throttle. The spirited crowd can be seen cheering local legends such as "Deebs", "Miller", and "Birk", down the accredited classic downhill run, "Remely", and across the finish line. Racers in the cup are often encouraged to sport a bikini to amp up the stakes.

OH MyGosh are you in for a treat. This mountain has so much to offer every skier all with that ol' homegrown zest. It was one of the first amalgamated runs in the US. It's got what it takes and the folks are fantabulous

Beautiful mountain, great crowd. A great time with Elkhorn Hotsprings right across the road for a really fun time skiing and soaking.

Great 1 lift resort. Not packed at all! Would be a great spot to visit for a day or two checking out lesser known ski hills.
