This was my first trip to Big Sky. Annual ski trip with my son. The mountain is massive. We skied 3 days and still were unable to get to 5 chairs to see what was there. Learning our way around the mountain took up more time then we wanted. The expert terrain is something special. As we made our way... More

Big Sky is a must visit for any serious skier. It truly is big - bigger than Vail with a fraction of the number of skiers. It has HUGE bowls and tons of them, so many that some aren't even called bowls. Add to that steeps, chutes, great tree skiing and loads of wide open slopes plus terrain for the... More

Big Sky is all of that, great mountain for all skill levels. It seems to be very intimidating at first until you get to know your way around. Go have fun and explore.

What a refreshing resort. Everyone there is wanting to ski or be outdoors. My ski lesson was super fun. The service is midwestern friendly, not over the top. No lines, no fuss, no hassle. Stay away if you're looking to be "seen" Not a lot to do at night because if you're doing right you should be in bed by... More

Sad to be back home after a wonderful week at Big Sky. This being my second time at the mountain, I had high expectations after a fantastic trip a few years ago. Despite it being a rough year for Western resorts in terms of snow, Big Sky seemed to have been one of the resorts to maintain excellent coverage. I... More

Other than being the most massive ski area in the lower 48 with incredible variety of runs, the services are wonderful. No lines for tickets, short lines for lifts, and very friendly and helpful hosts. The new restaurant on the top of Ramcharger lift, Everett's 8800, is fantastic -- elegant dining at reasonable price, reservations for lunch recommended, but they... More

Visited with our ski group-65 avid skiers from Maine. Vaaaast terrain, great trails and lift system, excellent on mountain facilities and the friendliest, most accommodating hosts (from hotel staff, lefties, ambassadors et al) that you'll find anywhere. Can't wait to return! Tell your friends about Big Sky.

Big sky is a wonderful skiing destination. An enormous amount of terrain to ski and usually great powdery snow. Not a huge amount of après ski, so if that's your thing, stick with aspen.

Big Sky is awesome. It is huge but actually pretty easy to move around. Our family had an absolute blast here in Feb 2015. We did the 5 day ski pass and skied from 9-4 almost every day. The snow gods haven't been kind this year but we still had a great time. The terrain is great with all kinds... More

I can't say enough good things about a family trip to Big Sky resort this past school vacation week! The friendliness of the staff and instructors, the beauty of the mountain, the food and lovely accommodations at the Summit all made for a wonderful time. NO lift lines, great ski school for the children, super friendly and attentive staff. If... More
