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 Big Sky's 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. With fantastic terrain and around 10 metres of powder each season, 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, plus 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 be 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.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Big Sky is the only resort in the area and hence does not need to try too hard. One new lift up to the only on slope very expensive restaurant but all other very slow and need upgrading. Very expensive if any purchases are in resort, go to the independent outlets for better cheaper deals on servicing etc... still great resort loads of runs all abilities.

Very nice resort with varied terrain, no queues except on Saturday morning. I joined a group advanced lesson which was great value, fun and helpful.

Excellently groomed pistes and lots of potential off-piste. It was really empty when we went (end of Jan). Generally a resort for older skiers - I am 55 and felt relatively young :) but this was a major advantage as we sometimes never saw anybody on a whole run. Would like to go back with my wife but only for 3 or 4 days. Would possibly prefer to stay at the middle village where there would be more variety of restaurants, bars and shops.
