About Discovery

Discovery has three faces. The front face is the perfect blend of gently sloping runs and more advanced groomed cruisers. Off the Granite Chair, things step up a notch with steeper groomed runs and mogul skiing. And the backside? Well, imagine the Chugach without the costly helicopter ride. Point is, we have great terrain and lots of it. No matter what kind of mountain you like, you just discovered it.

Discovery also offers a lot of downhill thrills during the summer months at the Discovery Bike Park from June 18th through October. The trails are intermediate to advanced with loads of features for downhill riders to enjoy. You can learn more about the bike park by going here.
