Montana Snowball

Ski and Eat in Missoula

April 4, 2010, is the last day of skiing at the Montana Snowbowl, near our Missoula bed and breakfast. Snow may be around for a while yet, but these are your last weeks to enjoy downhill skiing by day and the restaurants and amenities of Missoula by night.

You’ll be hankering for a good meal after a day on the slopes. Cold, fresh air stimulates the appetite. Read on for a few good Missoula restaurant recommendations.

Dim Sum dinner at our Missoula inn.

Red Bird offers innovative cuisine in an architecturally stunning locale. Their menu changes seasonally so they may use the freshest possible ingredients.

Finn & Porter serves hearty steaks and delectable seafood in a hip and jazzy atmosphere.

Scotty’s Table offers simple yet sophisticated French bistro fare. Expect to find delicious deserts and an excellent wine list at The Depot. The Pearl Cafe and Bakery serves up hearty French country food that may be just perfect after a day of skiing.

Of course, you are always welcome to ask us for restaurant recommendations. And if you give us a little notice, we love to prepare dinners for four or more guests of our bed and breakfast Missoula. We serve a variety of menus from Western BBQ to East Indian feasts. Ask about it when making your reservation.

Just about thirty minutes to the northeast is the Montana Snowball ski mountain. With about two feet of snow at the base and almost five feet at the summit, the skiing is great right now. Ride to the summit, and you’ll be at over 7,500 feet, with a vertical drop of 2,600 feet. The longest run is three miles. In short, you can pass your days here happily.

The mountain is open daily from 9:30 am to 4 pm. This allows for a leisurely breakfast at our Missoula inn. Have a skiing getaway with a small group of friends, and with advance planning we’ll have a fantastic dinner waiting when you return to the Montana b&b, tired and ready for someone else to feed you. Enjoy a restful evening at the inn playing games, music, chatting or watching a movie. You’ll be ready to hit the slopes again come Sunday.
