Mountain Info

Great Divide is a progressive & FUN family operated SnowSports mountain park that covers a lot of country.  Over 100 named trails, including bowls, glades, and fun skiing regions.  The ski terrain is spread out over three mountain peaks and three distinct valleys on an area covering 1600 acres and three miles from end-to-end. We also have 6 terrific terrain parks with features that riders of all ages and abilities will enjoy.
