Big Sky Ski Holidays

Big Sky has some big terrain and the quietest slopes in the West. Lone Peak offers scary skiing as well as gentle tree-lined groomers. There’s genuinely something for everyone here.

With no major cities nearby, the big attraction of this huge ski area is that it’s never busy on the slopes.

When Big Sky merged with Moonlight Basin in 2013, it became one of North America’s largest resorts. Add fantastic terrain and around 10 metres of powder each season, and journeying to this Montana gem is well worth it.

The scope for intermediates is fantastic, while experts can ride the tram to the top of Lone Peak. Purpose built, Big Sky’s Mountain Village is low key, with good restaurants and a few bars and shops. You’ll find more amenities in Big Sky town but this resort is more about the skiing than nightlife.

While there’s a huge amount of skiing to had on Big Sky ski holidays, it’s worth taking a daytrip to Yellowstone National Park (an hour away). And with Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee within driving distance, you could experience all three on a Yellowstone Ski Safari.

Lovely long runs for all abilities. Staying slopeside here was definitely the best thing to do as all very convenient.

This is an amazing resort and the most snow sure of the 3 that we visited. The terrain is huge and often we had the runs to ourselves - even on a powder day!! There are so many options here that you feel like you are visiting a new resort each day. Big Sky is definitely one to visit.

A big ski area, easy to navigate, very attractive. Small base but everything you need. Good food (excellent meal in Peaks).
