One of Montana’s best-kept secrets is Lakeside, Montana.
This little town tucked along the base of Blacktail Mountain on Flathead Lake has quietly become one of Montana’s sought-after retirement and recreation communities.
A bedroom community to Kalispell, Lakeside has for years been a great place to live, but it was with the opening of Blacktail Mountain Ski Area in 1997 that helped to make the Lakeside community even more attractive.
Blacktail Mountain Ski Area provides a balance to the Flathead Valley’s other ski area — Whitefish Mountain Resort — which is a destination resort with high-end amenities and high-speed lifts. Blacktail, on the the other hand, offers a laid-back family atmosphere where it’s cool to bring your brown bag lunch and hang out in the lodge by the fire. The ski area lodge is at the top of the mountain, so you’re given a spectacular view of the Flathead Valley from the comfort of Blacktail Mountain Lodge. The ski area features gentle slopes for beginners and intermediate skiers, but there are also powder-filled glades where more skilled skiers and snowboarders can find challenge.
