When a person thinks of Montana, they think of wide open spaces, cowboys, and cattle. But we may want to rethink this theory when the Big Sky Resort comes to mind. Big Sky Resort consists of Moonlight Basin and Lone Peak, located in southwest Montana, with an annual snowfall of over 400 inches. Located between Bozeman and Yellowstone National Park, it has over 3,600 acres of the most extraordinary terrain even seen, for an unsurpassed skiing experience possible. Many enjoyable recreations are available at Big Sky Ski Resort, other than cowboys and cattle. Many recreational opportunities can be found in Montana’s abundant wildlife and western hospitality, along with other Boyne U.S.A. Resorts to visit, such as the Boyne Mountain, Boyne Highlands, Brighton, Crystal, Cypress, The Inn at Bay Harbor, and the Gatlinburg Skylift. To appreciate Big Sky, its history and rich legend needs to be appreciated at its fullest.
Enjoying the Big Sky ski vacations, guests now have the option of purchasing a joint-lift ticket which allows them unlimited access to both Big Sky Resort and Moonlight Basin. They can enjoy the largest skiing area in America, with over 5,500 acres of snow-covered terrain, consisting of wide-open groomed runs, glades and steep chutes, and powder-filled bowls. If time allows, take the Lone Peak Tram to Big Sky’s summit, for viewing of three states, two national parks, and countless mountain ranges which include the Tetons. It is no wonder Montana is widely known for its wide open slopes and short lift lines.
Having a top elevation of 11,166 feet and a vertical drop of 4,250 feet, Big Sky Ski Resort has one of the largest lift-served vertical drops in the United States. It also has over 23 lifts, 220 trails, and two cable car lines available. Over 5,300 acres of ski slopes and trails await eager skiers, with over 33 feet of snowfall each season. While there are beginner slopes, most of the slopes are geared toward intermediate and expert skiers.
At Big Sky, there are no strangers. Considered one of the highest-rated ski resorts in the United States, our main focus here is family. Activities such as Snowsports School to Kid’s Club, along with nightly movies, are combined with games, marshmallow roasts, and more – for every paying adult, two children under ten will be allowed in free at Big Sky Resort. Remember, there is always something at Big Sky for everyone, so come on out and enjoy the Western hospitality you have only heard about!
