Official Statement: “Blacktail Mountain’s 19th Season is now in the books and what a great winter it has been. The snow was plentiful from day one right up until the end. Looking forward to next year we hope to have more glading done between Snowslip and Radar and West of Emmons ridge from the top down to crossover. The Environmental Assessment for improvements to the Blacktail Road is complete and the decision was to pave the road to the top. The contract for phase 2, mile post 3.43 to mile post 7 should come out in May and that work should start this summer. Thanks to all of you who wrote letters of support. The Blacktail Road provides access to many multiple use opportunities on the Flathead National Forest.
We hope you take advantage of the spring pass sale and receive the best value and lowest price. The sale ends May 15th. The early pass sale helps us get through the summer and gives you the best deal.” – Blacktail Mountain
