Why Stay at our Bed and Breakfast in Missoula MT This Winter

Our Inn sits on a mountainside overlooking the beautiful Bitterroot River Valley. Our guest rooms offer private baths with jetted tubs, king or queen beds, and all the amenities that will make your stay memorable and relaxing.

Ski Missoula – the Montana Snowbowl

The Montana Snowbowl is open for business. The powder is deep and fresh, and every trail is open. As of this writing, there are four feet of snow at the base and more than six feet of snow at the summit. A fresh dusting of 4 inches sits atop the packed powder, and there isn’t a breath of wind. It’s difficult to stay away, isn’t it?

Don’t fight the urge to ski – embrace it. Our Missoula bed and breakfast is less than 30 minutes from the Montana Snowbowl – an ideal location for a ski weekend getaway.

The Montana Snowbowl is open daily from 9:30 to 4 pm. Ski during the week when crowds are thin, or come to participate or watch some of racing events that are scheduled during January and February. January 15 – 17 is the Northern Division Freestyle Event, which pits the best skiers in the area against one another in a series of freestyle and jumping events. The weekly Alpine Evening Race Series on Wednesday evenings begins January 26, 2011, and the Telemark Evening Race Series on Thursday evenings begins February 3, 2011.

If you haven’t already done so, dig those skis and boards out of the basement and give them a good coat of wax. The season has begun, and it looks to be a good one. We stand ready to welcome skiers and snowboarders to our Missoula Montana bed and breakfast, where the hot chocolate is excellent and a fire will keep you warm.
