That pretty much sums up Moonlight Basin. I experienced a fun powder day there last Tuesday and I felt like I had the whole mountain to myself. It was awesome! The groomers (blue runs) were so fun on this mountain! Plenty of room to traverse. For lunch we dined at the Moonlight Lodge which was a real treat! I cannot... More

Although the snow didn't cooperate this year, we absolutely LOVE Moonlight! The skiing is (usually) awesome and the there are NO crowds. The tickets now include Big Sky so there is LOTS of terrain to explore.

Recently visited Big Sky and stayed in Moonlight Basin. The lodge is fabulous - great staff, fun bar and out of the fray of Big Sky. Moonlight Basin has some great terrain (trees, bowls and groomers). You have to hike up to the Headwaters lift to get up into the chutes that lead in to the main bowl. This was... More

Great food at the lodge. the six shooter chair is one of the longest chairs. to make matters worse, I rode it inthe rain last Tuesday .UGH. The lodge is spectacular. The food was OK, nothing special. The service was less than average. it took forever to get the check and we were anxious to ski

Most of this mountain is north facing and the snow stays in better shape longer. No lifts lines and some great tree shots!

It's hard to believe that Moonlight wasn't always part of Big Sky as each resort really compliments the other. I actually enjoyed the Moonlight area more than the original Big Sky side. The runs are long, glades are nicely spaced and the lift lines are minimal even on a weekend. It was too bad that conditions didn't allow me to... More

This is the "other side" of Big Sky and actually the area we preferred most. The vibe is low key but elegant at the same time. No lift lines, amazing skiing and diverse terrain. Great food and drink while breaking for lunch. We can't wait to come back.

If you haven't been skiing at Moonlight Basin you are really missing out. The skiing is unbelievable. I've been to Vail, Breckinridge and Killington and none of these come close to the ski environment at Moonlight Basin. The best part is there was no wait in the lift lines.

This place is awesome, you must rent a helmet. I knew something looked different while on the lift going to the top. I would say almost 99.9% had on helmets with the exceptions of the 6 in our group. There are no catch fences, its just a grip and rip place. Great runs, multiple ways to get down the mountain.... More
