    Montana got some old school mountains ski areas like this don’t survive down here in Colorado

      That might depend on geographical factors as most of the Colorado resorts are located close to Denver and Montana doesn’t really have many major population centers. Also population contributes to bigger and more modern resorts as more people come and more money is made.
