Big Sky Resort is known for giving skiers and riders access to more skiing than anywhere else in the United States. Located in south central Montana, about fifty miles south of Bozeman, Big Sky provides visitors with updated amenities, a well developed infrastructure and over 5,750 acres of skiable terrain.

The resort offers some of the best expert and advanced terrain around while including an extensive network of trails suited for the intermediate and beginner skier or snowboarder. The resort claims to be the base camp to Yellowstone National Park and provides daily shuttles to Yellowstone’s west entrance. The resort has everything one would expect from a modern ski resort including a variety of dining, lodging, and shopping possibilities.

Big Sky is a destination resort that embodies a quiet remoteness that is lost at other mega-resorts. Skiers and riders are rarely stopped by a lift line due to the resort's massive size and somewhat remote location.

Big Sky Resort boasts an impressive vertical rise of 4,350 feet. The mountain’s summit of 11,166ft is serviced by the Lone Peak Tram that grants access to chutes and wide expansive bowls.  From the top of the Lone Peak Tram, skiers and riders are able to see three states on a clear day including Wyoming and Idaho.

The resort is located within the Madison Mountain Range and gets over four hundred inches of snowfall annually. Big Sky is home to runs up to six miles long, excellent tree glades and expansive bowls.  The resort is mainly advanced and expert but beginners and intermediates also have multiple terrain options to explore.

The Lone Peak Tram only carries fifteen passengers at a time so lift lines are guaranteed. When the wait time is too long check out the Challenger Lift that grants access to excellent terrain options similar to what one would find off of the Lone Peak Tram.
