Welcome to Big Sky Resort: home of the biggest skiing in America. 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.

In summer the adventure continues with wildlife viewing, zipline tours, whitewater rafting, biking, hiking, horseback riding, climbing or experience our mountain safari and tram ride to the top with the legendary Lone Peak Expedition.

We were here because my wife attended a conference. Really, there isn't all that much to do here in the summer. You can walk up and down the mountain, or take the chair lift. There are a couple of other trails around which are nice. But this is mainly a winter resort, so come here in the winter.

Spent 3 days in Big Sky Montana as part of a family trip to the Yellowstone area. There are 6 of us - my wife and I and 4 kids - 16,14,12 and 9. The trip was planned through a travel planner. Had no idea of what Big Sky had to offer. It exceeded our expectations. The accommodations at Moonlight... More

Stayed for a week in Stillwater condos at the resort. Had a great time. There was a lot to do for everyone in our group, and it's close enough to get a great trip into Yellowstone. All workers and trip leaders were great.

Plenty to do for the whole family. Hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, shopping, swimming, and plenty to eat and drink.

Terrain, terrain, terrain, and more terrain. Something for every level skier/boarder. But truly shines for the experienced skier/boarder.

This mountain is amazing! The terrain is so diverse and since it's merge with Moonlight it's only gotten better. The mountain employees seem a little disgruntled at times though.

The Adventure Zipline course at Big Sky resort is fantastic! Some of the longest and most beautiful ziplines in North America. You ride the chairlift about 1/2 way up the mountain and zip your way back down. The scenery is amazing. Our guides, Shelby and Joe were outstanding. Friendly and very professional ensuring everyone was safe at all times. This... More

During visit to Big Sky some of the family wanted to try the zip line thrill. Big Sky Resort was highly recommended. Our 7 year old grandson was hesitant but decided to give it a try. There were three different rides and each one was amazing! The staff was very helpful and encouraging! Grandson told us he was glad he... More

Our family loved this resort. Huge mountain! Driving in from airport (less than an hour to resort) we had to stop for Big Horn Sheep. On way back to airport to fly out (4 am) we had to drive thru an Elk Herd. Nature and skiing, what a vacation. Very good restaurants also, better eating than Breckenridge by far.
