- Cinnabar – This fun green run rolls through Moonlight Basin and ends at the Madison Base and Six Shooter Chairlift.
- Sacajawea – Tucked into the south face of Andesite Mountain, Sacajawea is always a crowd pleaser – especially in the AM.

If you’re a true beginner, some of the best learning terrain is located off of the Explorer Chairlift, the Southern Comfort Chairlift, and the Derringer Chairlift. There are also numerous surface lifts near the base areas if you’re just learning to ski.
