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.

Great time, snow and queues brilliant.

27/03/2018 Steve Gow

Stayed at the resort and hotel before and returned as we had 'unfinished business' with the mountain. It's all about the snow, the skiing and the terrain for us. There is no other reason to go to Big Sky for a long holiday as the restaurants are seriously limited in volume and the quality and VfM of some this year was poor. I felt the the food this year was not as good as 5 years ago and contrasted massively from excellent (Bucks T4, Andiamo, Carabiner and to really poor (Hummers and sorry to say the main restaurant at the Summit for evening meals). But as I say its all about snow and the expansion of the terrain since five years ago really adds to the resort and we had a fab time although it came at a cost as this holiday was expensive. So unless the US dollar something drastic - back to Canada next year.

Great resort for getting ski miles under your belt, varied runs for all levels. The lifts are very dated and not good value in relation to how costly the lift pass is. This is the main criticism of the resort. If you don't have a car not much choice for dining in an evening if you are staying for more than 4 nights
