Did some shopping...not much for kids shops other than JP woolies. Did chairlift day pass which was way less expensive than loan peak and still offered great views. Did some short hikes at top and down from chairlift. Kids loved chair lift rides, did several times just to enjoy views.

We had the pleasure of visiting the Big Sky area for the first time, in mid July 2015. My wife was celebrating her birthday during the trip and wanted to try out mountain biking! We visited Different Spokes Bike Shop at Big Sky Resort and did the beginner's trail with Austin as our guide. Both my wife and daughter were... More

Welcoming, professional and well worth the experience. The rooms were spotless and the staff helpful. The safety consciousness of the mountain staff along with the equipment were outstanding. The stunning mountain scenery was beyond reproach.

The best. I have skied all over this country and Europe. This is it. The atmosphere is great. The skiing is steeper than Jackson Hole. If you want long greens - they have that too. Stay a week - and you can't ski every run. Not even close. Season pass holder for 10 years.

The weekend was so perfect. The Resort is so charming and everyone is friendly and helpful. I stayed at the Village Center and had a lovely room with a very peaceful view. The room had a kitchenette, warm and cozy living room and a murphy bed that was very comfortable. The bathroom was a surprising good size, spotless with a... More

The condo is impeccable. The only complaints I have is 1) they charge $300 for cleaning fee for a 4 night rental. That's excessive!!! and 2) the "garage" where we were supposed to take the trash out was locked and we couldn't take the trash out so the whole time we were there, the trash was sitting in the hall...

We signed up early in the morning and paid for a 3:30 pm zip line adventure . It was the first available for that day! My... More

Staff is constantly being added and not everyone has the same information. They are fantastically accommodating because of this. A huge range of physical activities available to assist families in being outside and adventurous together.

Great resort. Higher end with some expensive places to stay but they also have some mid level hotels/resorts as well in the area. There is so much to do here. From mountain biking down the mountain to bungee/trampoline for kids to do there is something for everyone here. They also have a small lake/beach area with Hobbie Cats, paddle boards... More
