We ski Big Sky Resort each year, typically in March. The facilities are great, the traffic is light compared to other large resorts. It is the best big-mountain type of terrain we have found. We will be back every year.

Big Sky has a little something for everyone. There are plenty of beginner, intermediate and advanced runs to choose from. Lots of terrain from wide open bowls, trees for glade skiing, chutes, long cruiser groomers, terrain parks, etc. The tram to the top of Lone Peak accesses some more extreme skiing for those who like it steep, tight and exposed....

I think that my family will have a hard time going anywhere else over Christmas break. They skied for 6 days and did not even get to see the whole combined resort. There was almost never a wait. The price is higher than most, but well worth it because of the time spent skiing vs. spent waiting in line. We... More

Thank you for reviewing our resort. We are glad you enjoyed your skiing experience, with 5,800 acres it's easy for everyone to spread out, which means little to no lift lines! We hope to see you again next winter. More

I broke my pelvis and suffered torn ligaments. The Medical Centre in Big Sky was wonderful . Even though the line of people like me who... More

Big Sky makes every effort to maximize the ski experience and reduce any of the negatives of the ski experience. This is a big time mountain that offers challenging terrain for any skier (if you are not challenged enough- you can always hike to harder terrain with 50% degree slopes). They also minimize any negatives by having no lines at... More

Good accommodations and amenities and close to the slopes but you can skip the restaurant there for lunch and dinner. Good breakfast though

This is a big mountain and the actual "on-mountain" ski experience may be the best I've experienced in North America (skied most of the top resorts in the West). Strengths: no lift lines, geographic remoteness of this area guarantees relatively uncrowded runs, great variety of terrain, base starts from 6,000+ and tops out over 11,000 feet (wow)! Weaknesses: "on-mountain" lodging... More

This is our 5th year in a row traveling to Big Sky for Spring Break skiing/snowboarding. We'd stayed at the Summit at the base of the Ram Charger lift. Loved the pool, breakfast, quiet hotel like accommodations. But the best part of Big Sky are the short lift lines (if there is a lift line), the terrain and the ski/snowboard... More
