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.

In short, Big Sky is where the few come to roam, live big, and experience an adventure all their own.

Our flight was into Bozeman's beautiful airport. Recommend getting a four-wheel-drive rental car. Our lodging was in a townhome in the valley about 10-15 minutes away from the resort. Roads were in excellent condition. Best thing about this place is the lack of lift lines and the super long runs. We were tuckered out much quicker than usual. Experienced wildly... More

I am a Bozeman resident, and accordingly I have skied Big Sky for many years. As a local, we are very fortunate to have such easy access to this first class ski resort. The staff at all levels and functions are always friendly, courteous and helpful. The grooming is fantastic. Great skiing experience for all levels.

I have been going to Big Sky for many years for a week in Jan. The Huntley Hotel at the base of the lifts has the best breakfast ever, a short walk to the lifts and the ski sentry, where they will keep your skis overnight. A boot room in the hotel to warm your boots and on a good... More

I occasionally ski in Europe, but the facilities here were the best I have ever experienced. There are so many pistes and everyone can find plenty to suit their level. There were not that many people so I often had the feeling that I have the whole mountain to myself. I have never experienced this before anywhere else. If you... More

Unfortunately only had time for a single day on the mountain. Rented skis for a change and the staff were very efficient, pleasant and got us ready to go in no time. Conditions were great and not as cold as we had expected but it can, and does change fast. We were lucky to get clear skies and temps in... More

The lift attendants are friendly and interested in you as a skier/boarder. More territory than you could ski in a week. Love everything about Big Sky except the price of lift tickets and the cost of food--bring a bag lunch.

This is our 10th visit to Big Sky resort since 1992 and it keeps getting better. Lift service is excellent - not crowded (I hate to say it - even during xmas ) Everyone is friendly -from lift ticket sales to lift operators. Grooming is outstanding. Lots of terrain for everyone. As I get older, I enjoy the groomed runs... More

Big Sky was great. Skiing options were plentiful and no lift lines (was there on Christmas day). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Ate at Montana Jacks and food and drinks were great too. I did like Copper Mtn and Breck as far as a "village feel" better. Big Sky area has a lot to offer.,,also did dog sledding, and... More

This resort is truly exceptional. The acreage to ski on is extensive and there are numerous runs to suit all abilities. When we were there, the Lone Peak mountain runs didn't have enough snow to ski safely, but not sure if we would have taken up the challenge anyway as they looked the most technical and steepest runs on piste...

It's Montana so it is always VERY cold!! It was -29 the other morning at 8am!! Despite having some very extreme terrain, most of the mountain is actually very flat. The area itself is not very convenient, most restaurants and shops are miles away from the main resort area and the skyline express is horrible!! God forbid you miss your... More
