The Philisburg's Discovery Ski Area, which many consider a secret ski spot for locals, is getting national attention.
National Geographic listed Philipsburg as one of North Americans "best secret ski towns." It is featured among nine other ski towns, from New Mexico to British Columbia. The list also includes Cooke City, Montana.
This came just a few weeks after the Los Angeles Times featured the Discovery Ski Area as one of the most family-friendly and affordable ski areas in the west. Staff members at Discovery Ski say, despite national recognition, it will never lose its small town feel.
