Kings Hill Pass

Kings Hill Pass Professional Review and Guide

"Two trails in the Little Belt Mountains lead skiers off the top of Kings Hill Pass beginning west and then either north or south and down different drainages for all-day trips. Both require a shuttle at trail’s end. The region is known for the boom towns that grew up after the discovery of silver in the area during the 1880s.

White Sulphur Springs was known to Native Americans as “medicine waters.” The natural hot springs were developed first for miners to soak, then for a doctor’s patients, and today attract guests for their supposed healing powers. Kings Hill Pass is the highest pass that remains open in Montana in winter. The top, at 7,393 feet, receives the brunt of many cold winter storms. Because of the high elevation, Kings Hill receives cold, fine snow all winter. On clear days from the pass, it’s possible to look south to the Castle Mountains and farther south down to Yellowstone National Park, into the Crazy Mountains, and west to the Big Belts. Surface quality: Skier-packed."
