4-27-2011 Downing Mountain Lodge

While the Downing Mountain Lodge has officially closed for the season, skiing remains good this year throughout the Bitterroot and Montana mountain ranges. With adventures I have heard about from Glacier park’s second highest peak to further descents on the east face of Sky Pilot, the mountains have held their snow deep this year. I am hoping to head out to some distant peaks in the Pintlars, Beaverheads, Missions, and Glacier Park, with maybe a trip to the Cabinet Range. Also Idaho and the desert ranges will call as well. So starting this week I hope that the research will pick up again.

My wife, Jenny, and I started operating the Downing Mountain Lodge in 2008-2009 and purchased the facility and 60 acres in July, 2012. Operating as the premier Montana backcountry ski lodge in the winter and a holiday retreat the rest of the year, the Downing Mountain Lodge is located west of Hamilton Montana in the Bitterroot Range of the Rocky Mountains. With incredible skiing in the winter and exceptionally private but accessible lodging year round, the Downing Mountain Lodge, built in 1976, is the iconic mountain lodge in the Bitterroot Valley, available to the public for enjoyment and pleasurable stays.
