Welcome to Big Sky Resort: home of the biggest skiing in America. 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.

Big Sky is a terrific mountain. Though it favors advanced skiers who are comfortable skiing off piste, there is plenty of terrain for those who prefer groomers. The snow is very light and the slopes are empty. Also, the people are among the friendliest I have encountered in any ski area. I strongly recommend Big Sky if you want to... More

We are used to skiing in New England. My son's first trip out west. He loved it. spring skiing conditions all week in February. They said this was very unusual. But we had no complaints. Skied mostly areas the mountain offered but nowhere near all the trails. Very little crowds even on the weekends when we were here. no lift... More

$106 for an all day lift ticket is nuts, no matter how much terrain you have. Definitely not Montana's Best Last Place.

This mountain has terrain for every type of skier. Beautiful long uninterrupted groomers, excellent tree skiing on green, blue and black diamond trails and plenty of bowl skiing above the tree line. No lift lines to speak of and a Ski Valet off the main lifts.

I came for a conference and it was wonderful. So many things to do when we had breaks including skiing, snowshoeing and shopping! The cowboys at the front were helpful and attractive. Jake from Georgia who works at the front desk was so helpful (and very attractive). So thank you Jake from the 5 women that were definitely flirting with... More

Loved skiing the enormous area with no lift line. Backside gorgeous with wide open space. Loved close up to all the black diamonds I no longer ski.

We are from New York, and so are used to skiing in the East. Our daughter, who lives in California, suggested we try skiing in the west this year. We were lucky enough to get a time share trade (there is only one place to trade into) near the base of the resort so we booked it. We have not... More

I had never skied Big Sky so I hired a guide/ski instructor for the day. One of my best ski days ever and I've been skiing over 55 winters. Terrific terrain for good skiers...chutes, head walls, glades and steep drops into bowls. No crowds, unpretentious skiers. Loved every minute.

Big Sky is just that--BIG. There are numerous runs and lifts spread over at least two mountains. The scenery is spectacular. The intermediate runs are exceptionally long. I intentionally avoided the blacks, but there were plenty of them and they were deserving of their designation from what I could see, and the one time I became directionally challenged and ended...
