Shivani Vora of the New York Times published a story entitled, “How to Have a Culturally Rich Vacation.” She suggests ways to become more immersed, no matter your destination.

Travel company owner Ashish Sanghrajka points out, “Getting exposed to local culture is enriching and shows us a world beyond ourselves.”

We couldn’t agree more. This exposure to novel experiences is good for the body and spirit. Winter is also the perfect time to try something new. It’s a time that we often contemplate resolutions and direction for the year ahead. It is a time to get inspired by exploring parts unknown.

Winter Specials Celebrating Montana Lifestyle & Culture

Every year we try to showcase Montana culture and sports by curating winter specials. In some cases, these are guest favorites and in other cases they are new experiences based on the traditions and history of Southwest Montana.

Skiers ride the lifts at Discovery Ski Area. The hill is known for beautiful slopes and no lift lines.

Between December 1 and March 31, 2018 (stay restrictions may apply),  all winter specials include a complimentary fourth night and all-inclusive downhill skiing and snowboarding at our local hill, Discovery Ski Area, considered by National Geographic a best secret ski destination in North America.

“Eighteen miles up the Pintlar Scenic Highway is one of the best under-the-radar ski areas in the Northern Rockies—Discovery, or Disco to the locals…The only thing missing—in town, the surrounding mountains, or the wide ranching valleys sprawling out below—are crowds.” – National Geographic

We encourage you to seize the winter with these three trips that you can only experience when the snow falls at The Ranch at Rock Creek.

Supporting Discovery Ski Area, Our Best-Kept Secret

With just a few days left in the downhill ski season, we’ve got plenty of fond memories of gorgeous powdery days on Discovery Mountain. It seems mother nature missed the memo that spring has sprung and decided to send some last minute snow storms—even as we have enjoyed 60+ degree days in the valley.

In 2014, National Geographic chose Philipsburg as one of the Best Secret Ski Towns in North America. We are inclined to agree, although it’s anything but secret in Western Montana.
