There are huge open areas with cliffs and cornices in Rawhide Gulch and new-school back country in the Wild West Adventure Area.

The upper main mountain has classic trails and slopes while the lower mountain has a half-pipe, 2 terrain parks, snowmaking and night lights on well-groomed runs.

The Great Divide Base Lodge has a cafeteria, sundeck hut, Continental Club Restaurant and the Wild West Cabin and Bar when you need something to eat or drink.
