I think that Snowbowl is an all around great place. It is located about 15 miles out of missoula, and is very accessable. The slopes are good, and the lodge is beatiful. My work had their picnic here last summer, and they were very accomadating!!! We had a blast, and just hung out. The inside of the bar is very rustic feeling, and has tons of seating..all around nice place.
