Photos: Opening Day at Blacktail Mountain Ski Area

With 4 inches of fresh powder and 28 inches of settled base, Blacktail Mountain Ski Area opened its slopes overlooking Flathead Lake and the scenic valley. Skiers and snowboarders enjoyed gliding down runs on the Thunderhead and Olympic chair lifts while the sun peeked in and out of the clouds. The groomers were smooth and the powder was excellent for the holidays. The ski area is staying open everyday through Jan. 5.
