If you're looking for uncrowded slopes, mixed terrain ideal for groups or families with varying level of expertise, a massive amount of terrain—5,750 acres to be exact—and a relaxing, laid-back mountain setting then a Big Sky ski trip should be a top-of-mind choice. Being off the beaten path, as Big Sky is, certainly has its perks: lift lines are nonexistent. Locals and return visitors joke that if they have to wait in line for more than two minutes it’s a busy day. Big Sky also offers a handful of exceptional, rustic Montana dining experiences, sure to gratify guests looking for a unique meal.

Ski Big Sky

One thing’s for sure on a Big Sky ski trip, your legs are going to get tired, which makes the ski in ski out hot tubs that much sweeter. There's a lot of skiing to be had at Big Sky and even more than ever thanks to Big Sky's purchase of its sister resort Moonlight Basin. Usually, the more terrain, the more a lift ticket costs. We're happy to report that's not the case for Big Sky ski resort. To the tune of about $100, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the gargantuan 5,750 acres of Big Sky Resort.

The resort is centered around the impressive and imminent 11,166-foot Lone Peak. Skiers and boarders can easily jump back and forth between each ski area via interconnected lifts and trails. Beginners have their own private area without the interference of intermediate or expert skiers in the area between Moonlight Basin’s Pony Express and Derringer lifts. While intermediate skiers have incredible access and can get the feel of Big Sky’s expert terrain via trails at the base saddle of Lone Peak. It takes only one look at Lone Peak to realize that this mountain is an expert or extreme skier’s sanctuary. With challenging terrain in nearly every direction from the peak’s summit, experts can enjoy one of North America’s longest vertical runs.

Great place to stay!!

We loved staying at Saddle Ridge Condos. Loved the condo and location. Erin is the best! She always picks the best condo each year for us. Thanks so much! For several days we had the entire mountain to ourselves.

Beautiful big sky!

Big Sky Mountain is a large resort with a variety of terrain for skiers of all ability. Kept my husband and myself entertained for 4 days of skiing. Not very many long blue cruisers that were groomed - possibly because they were a little low on snow and not grooming to preserve their snow base. All greens that we skied were nicely groomed. Very cold when we went, 10-15 at base and below zero to ten degrees on top of mountain. Had 4 day lift pass - only one day off skiing. We wanted to start the lift pass the second day we were at the resort(trip to Yellowstone National Park - strongly suggested! We did a snowmobile and a snow coach tour.) When checking into the condo, the staff at the main desk said no problems - can ski any 4 days. Ended up that our passes expired one day earlier than we wanted. Staff at resort was very helpful in resolving this issue and we were issued a daily lift pass for the last day we planned to ski. Bar staff was great - we had drinks to go and carried them back to our condo. Doormen at main hotel were friendly and helpful. Lots of staff at base of mountain. Free ski valet was a great option for us - didn't have to carry skis back and forth to condo. Go visit this great resort before the crowds find it! No lines at lift - the mountain swallows up the skiers.

Interesting mountain but not great snow conditions

We had never been to Big Sky so thought we should finally get there in connection with a birthday gathering in Yellowstone NP. We were impressed by how huge the skiing area is but not wild about the snow conditions....we had just been skiing at Grand Targhee (60 miles away) where there was literally twice as much snow and not the wind-blown conditions we saw at the top of Big Sky. We skied 3 days and had very good guides for our two free tours of the mountain. They went out of their way to show us both major parts of the mountain and had good recommendations for things to explore. Unfortunately the whole upper part of the mountain was off limits because it was so windblown there was hardly any snow and we were definitely not going to kill ourselves up there. We are experienced skiers and always like to check everything out but never went up either Powder Seeker or Lone Peak Tram since it looked like - and we were advised that - there was no good way down in those conditions. Too bad. The things we liked about the mountain were the very long runs, the mostly uncrowded slopes even on a week-end, the very informative guides, the ski valet and the grooming. We did not like the snow conditions, the kind of uninspired runs on the Moonlight Basin side, the low light on most of the slopes in the PM in late January and the fact that the mountain is so spread out. We would have really liked to have spent time in the Elk Park Meadows area but not the right conditions. We did not get a chance to try out the on mountain lodge/dining or even the base area since we were committed to birthday celebrations off mountain for most of our free time. We did like the proximity of the Huntley Lodge to the slopes but wondered why there was that rise by the ski valet with 10 -12 steps...we found an inside elevator but not really handy. Ski valet was well run and very handy. I only used photo shop inside mall and that was very efficient.

Great Resort...hardcore skiing

This is a super resort for folks who really want to do some hard core skiing. There are plenty of easy runs for the beginners...but the advanced and expert runsure are unique and fun. My favorite part was skiing straight onto lifts almost the whole week. The many different areas to ski were an additional plus. I like to vary where I go and am actually considering potentially returning in a few years.....but there are so many amazing resorts out there. The one thing I wish they would do better is to have more groomed blacks....for speed demons like me, my knees only last a short time on the moguls these days.

Breath taking

Words cannot begin to describe how great Bis Sky Resort is. Perfect. Just perfect. And huge. We have decided to get ourselves a season pass to Big Sky for our return trips. So much skiing to do there, you could go for a month and not cover the entire place. If you are thinking about going to Big Sky for your next trip. Stop thinking and BOOK NOW!! You will not be disappointed.
