Our History

Jack Gilluly of Anaconda wrote an article about Mount Haggin’s ski trails that appeared in the December 1991 edition of Montana Magazine. This article provides an interesting overview of the history of the Mount Haggin ski area.

An impressive collection of historical photos below give a glimpse into the logging operations that occurred in the Mount Haggin area in the early 1900s and is a good companion to Gilluly’s article. Click on each image to read a description.
