About Big Sky Resort

Big Sky Resort is Montana’s largest destination resort, featuring uncrowded skiing on 3,812 acres with a vertical rise of 4,350 feet accessed by 18 lifts (including 4 high speed quads a tram and gondola).  Big Sky resort offers a variety of lodging options in 15 different complexes, a major conference center and function space all located in the very convenient mountain village either ski in/out or slopeside.  Big Sky is located just 18 miles from Yellowstone National Park and 1 hours drive from the Bozeman airport. 

The skiing at Big Sky is truly legendary.  The experience is based on huge vertical, tremendous elbow room and breathtaking scenery.  The facts tell the story, we have two mountains, 3,812 skiable acres, eighteen lifts, 400 inches of light, dry snow annually, no lift lines and the nation's 2nd largest vertical drop of 4,350 feet.  This massive vertical was attained thanks to the Lone Peak Tram, which accesses incredible expert terrain from our majestic peak.  Now with the recent addition of Moonlight Basin ski area and the new Lone Peak Pass, you can ski 5,512 acres on one lift ticket on one mountain, this is the largest skiing on one mountain in the U.S. 

Montana is known for its vast, beautiful landscapes and at Big Sky, there's no exception. World-class skiing and riding is spread across three interconnected mountains with 150 trails and 400 inches of annual snowfall. With two terrain parks, a half-pipe, and the Lone Peak Tram whisking skiers and riders to 11,150 ft., Big Sky is the choice of many winter enthusiasts from around the globe.  Regularly recognized in national publications for uncrowded skiing you will love lack of lift lines, elbow room on the ski runs and longer lasting great snow conditions. 

And when you're not skiing or riding the "cold smoke", the Big Sky area offers plenty of winter activities like snowmobiling and wildlife viewing in Yellowstone Park, snowshoeing, sleigh ride dinners, ice skating, free children's aprés ski activities, or relaxing with a spa treatment from the Solace Spa.
