Now, with the addition of the Moonlight Basin and Spanish Peaks terrain, Big Sky is even bigger! Towering at 11,166 feet and expanding over 5,750 skiable acres, Big Sky stands as a luxurious outpost on the edge Yellowstone's most wild country. Only 45 minutes from Yellowstone National Park and with over 400"of annual snowfall Big Sky offers down hill skiing, snowboarding, spa getaways, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and more. In summer the adventure continues with wildlife viewing, zipline tours, whitewater rafting, biking, hiking, horseback riding, climbing or experience our mountain safari and tram ride to the top with the legendary Lone Peak Expedition. In short, Big Sky is where the few come to roam, live big, and experience an adventure all their own. « less

Big Sky is well, "The Biggest Skiing in America". So that $100 lift ticket, worth it. There is so much terrain here, I still didn't even touch Shedhorn/Dakota territory, Challenger lift, Headwaters, and Lone Peak in the three days I skiied. The lifties and every staffmember throughout the resort are just sooooo friendly. When I rode up the Swift Current... More

This place is amazing!!!! Incredible terrain, great food and a relaxed atmosphere. Spent 6 days skiing and on day 5, I was still finding new terrain to explore. Can't wait to go back.

We had a great trip to big ski this year. You really need 3 days just to ski all the sides of the mountain.

This place is huge! I would say you would need at least 5 days of skiing just to see all the areas on this mountain! We had a great time on the mountain and can't wait to go back!

I spent a full 61/2 hours skiing , no stops , no drinks , no food (1 Power Bar) and can place this day in my top 3 ski days of all time. Absolutely had a ball and can't wait to get back again. I didn't get to the top of Lone Pine (looked too double black for me !!)... More

Moonlight Basin has always been my favorite place to ski. It is high on the mountain with a high speed lift that takes you from bottom to top in 8 minutes. Prior to this year MB offered such a great value with its very reasonable pricing on passes and lift tickets. Alas, the merger of Big Sky and Moonlight ended... More

Loved the ambiance of the place and the uncrowded slopes. I look forward to returning now that they have added the neighboring resort to the acreage. Nice ski-in, ski-out cabins. The only downside is the limited dining and grocery store options.

The powder snow here is fantastic, however, the price you may pay for it is lots of snowy days! I was at Big Sky in the midst of a serious storm front: lifts were closed one day due to wind, another day the very low visibility was a problem. About 6 hours of sunshine the whole week-- but I'm not... More
