Montana's winter and summer destination!

Homestake Lodge is a cross-country ski area situated in SW Montana. We are a year-round destination concentrating on cross-country skiing in the winter months and retreats, reunions, weddings, camps, family gatherings, and other special events during the rest of the year.

Homestake Lodge's focus is on being top-quality, affordable, sustainable, and family friendly with an adventerous spirit.

Homestake Lodge is located beneath the Continental Divide just three miles from Interstate-90 and 15 minutes from Butte, MT. Its a fabulous setting with 37km of trails through gently rolling terrain of meadows, evergreens, aspens, and beaver ponds. Incredible granite cliffs and rock croppings frame the trails.

There's no other place like this in Montana. During the ski season, a nice and cozy lodge allows skiers to arrive in the morning, ski, have lunch, and ski again in the afternoon. Two bunkrooms in the lodge accomodating 20 allow guests to stay affordably while enjoying the company of others. Other lodging includes a yurt and cabin.



What a wonderful little escape in such a heavenly spot.
