Mountainous northwest Montana is known for thick timber, remote mountains, large rivers, and few people. Many landmarks are named for the Kootenai Indians. Libby and nearby Troy grew from rough-and-tumble, turn-of-the century towns into hubs for recreation, timber, and mining industries. Skiing began in Libby in the 1930s and ’40s on the Skidale Slope, a 200-foot hill equipped with a rope tow and frequented by Scandinavian folks in the area. Alpine skiers now ride the country’s longest T-bar at Turner Mountain. Nordic skiers and snowshoers have several backcountry trails in the area, as well as the groomed South Flower Creek Cross-Country Ski Course just ten minutes from Libby. The Kootenai Cross-Country Ski Club maintains the trails on city, state, and federal lands. Surface quality: Machine-groomed twice weekly.
