Tucked in the towering mountains 50 miles northwest of Yellowstone National Park is Big Sky Montana, one of the biggest ski destinations in the United States, and a popular outdoor destination year round. Big Sky provides access to unlimited outdoor activities including biking in the summer and world-class skiing in the winter. Known for its panoramic views, skiing and snowboarding on Big Sky treats you to beautiful vistas of the nearby Rocky Mountains. Due to it’s relatively off-the-beaten-path location, Big Sky lacks the crowds that can be common in other ski destinations. When it comes to apres-ski, you can choose from more than 20 restaurants, bars, and lounges to celebrate your day on the runs.
Big Sky is home to 3 skiable peaks – spanning 5512 acres of skiable terrain – that feature more than 220 runs. Expert skiers can catch the thrill on Lone Mountain’s terrain. Advanced skiers have a ton of choices for skiing – Big Sky Resort is 42% advanced terrain. Opt for Liberty Bowl for a longer, challenging descent, or the Lone Tree Trails if you want to brush up your skiing skills for the expert trails. For beginners, the Mr. K and El Dorado trails are green runs perfect for kids and families. The 400-inches of snow Big Sky gets per year makes the resort a pow paradise. The resort is also know for its night skiing at Lone Peak!
The easiest way to go to Big Sky is through Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, a one-hour drive from the resort.
