Available Activities

Butte, Montana and the surrounding areas offer endless possibilities for outdoor adventure. 
In the winter, you can, of course, enjoy skiing: downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, backcountry skiing. Whatever type of snow skiing you're looking for, you can find it, here. You can also enjoy snowboarding, shoeshoeing, and snowmobiling.

When the snow melts, you can enjoy mountain biking, camping, hiking, and picnicking. And don't forget golf. Butte has several excellent golf courses, including one that was designed by Jack Nicklaus.

In addition, hunting and fishing are activities that are available year round. Over a million acres of nearby national forests offer outstanding opportunities for hunting, and Butte is within 30 minutes of some of the finest fishing in the country.

What to Expect

The Butte area has a number of excellent ski centers nearby. An excellent choice for cross-country skiing is Homestake Lodge.  Just 15 minutes from Butte, they have over 20 miles of pristine, groomed cross-country ski trails. For downhill skiing, try Discovery Basin. They have three faces, with runs suitable for beginner to expert skiers. 

For warm weather fun, you can find any number of excellent hiking trails. In fact, there are more than 10 miles of hiking trails in the Butte city limits. One of the most popular hikes in the area is the BA&P Hill Trail. It is a paved trail that runs a little over four miles. The trail winds through various historic sites in Butte, including abandoned mine yards and historic neighborhoods.

One more thing: If you enjoy golf, you'll love staying at Toad Hall Manor. Our property is adjacent to the 16th fairway of the Butte Country Club Golf Course, one of the premier golf courses in Montana.

"Fresh snow and uncrowded slopes and an extreme discount! We were turned on to Discovery Ski mountain by cousins who live in Missoula MT after another trip we had planned fell through over lack of snow. Discovery is just a ski area though and not a true resort. We stayed outside of Missoula and drove about 45 miles to the ski area. It wasn’t too far but I did have to drive in the snow. Next trip I’m considering renting a house at Georgetown lake near the foot of the mountain to be a little closer. The mountain has tons of trails for every level of skier or snowboarder. We didn’t have to wait in lift lines at all. Seriously never had more than three people ahead of us. There is a restaurant where you can warm up and get eats and drinks. It was very inexpensive compared to what we were used to. The workers in the rental shop, at the restaurant, and the patrol on the slopes were all very nice and accommodating. One of the children snowboarding in our group did a hard face plant. The snow patrol took him to a recovery / 1st aid area where he was checked for concussion and cleared before being allowed to continue. The rentals were inexpensive as were the lift tickets. Amazingly I returned home from this vacation with money leftover in our vacation fund! I should also add that while it wasn’t easy to find flights into Missoula MT that the airport was easy and we injoyed our time in the city of Missoula as well."

"There are several great cross country ski trails at the Ski Area. There is a separate parking area for cross country trails before you get to the main ski parking lot. This separate parking area allows access to trails on both sides of the road. Most of the trails were groomed as we skied."
