Showdown is an alpine ski area located in the Little Belt Mountains in Central Montana, United States.

History[edit]

Created in 1936 and originally called King's Hill Ski Area, Showdown is a small-scale ski area normally closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, receiving most patrons on the weekends. During the summer months, the area offers a variety of activities ranging from mountain biking to hiking to camping. Showdown is known for the 100% natural snow, beautiful scenery, and family atmosphere.

In 1973 the Ski Area changed its name from King's Hill Ski Area to Showdown Ski Area. In 1995, it was changed again to Showdown Montana.

Geography[edit]

The Ski Area is near the Kings Hill Scenic Byway which snow removal crews work throughout the winter season to keep open for year round access.

Additional lodging is available in Monarch, Montana and in nearby Neihart.
