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.

I came for a medical conference and stayed at the Shoshone Condos. Large suite, comfortable furnishings and lots of storage. The kitchen was surprisingly well equipped. The views are outstanding, even though we looked over the parking lot. The staff was friendly and helpful. The activities for children were outstanding. Many of the participants brought their families and we heard... More

Surrounded by mountains and trendy Big Sky, this golf course is a pleasure to play. Watch out, the roughs are very rough and water abounds. My favorite was the apologies about the state of greens - seems the elk and cross country skiers have left their marks :)

Highly recommend Big Sky! We visited in the summer, and there were tons of activities for all ages, small children through older adults. Resort is well kept, all facilities are clean and kept up to date. Staff is super friendly and helpful. You won't be disappointed!

I stayed at the Big Sky Resort on 6/30/14, figuring I would spend a little extra $$$ to stay at a nice place on my way to Yellowstone. Plan was to check in around 3pm, toss our stuff in our room and head up the chair-lift that was prominently depicted on their website. Unfortunately, the "nice" room had no air... More

Taking a measure of this resort built around what they now boast as the largest in the US, it is clear the slopes merit a return to ski. There are several upscale hotels, a long with variety of other accommodations and rentals, well covered on the website. Overall this appears much better run than Whitefish resort.

Big Sky has great skiing, uncrowded slopes, and friendly people. There are some good restaurants and lunch places.It is adjacent to another ski area, and the two of them provide more skiing than anyone can do in a week. Big Sky has challenging runs and slopes for beginners also.After Snowmass it is my favorite area.

After spending a Tuesday driving 10 hours in Yellowstone going to the Big Sky resort was a welcome break to our vacation. We spent 15 minutes going up a chair lift towards the top of a peak. The view from the top if spectacular. Coming from Minnesota we are accustomed to snow but it has long been melted by the... More

Big Sky is known for the winter skiing but the summer is great too. Lots of things to do all in a beautiful location. Plenty busy in summer with a young energetic staff of young people that are a lot of fun.
