Big Sky


Surrounded on all sides by sweeping landscapes and vast wilderness, Big Sky Resort’s old-west hospitality, iconic charm, and diverse culture have made this booming destination world-renowned. The resort is situated between Bozeman, Montana and Yellowstone National Park’s West entrance.

Riding through the resort’s seemingly perpetual blue skies and over 3,600 acres of powdery terrain is the perfect way to get back to nature. Spanning three mountains, Big Sky is among the top three ski and snowboard resorts in North America by size, meaning lift lines are almost nonexistent, and you’ll have more elbow room to practice your wide carving turns.

The crowning feature of Big Sky is the Lone Peak Tram. Built in 1995, this dramatic climb increased the resort’s size by 50% and brought the ski area’s vertical rise to 4,350 feet. Now skiers and snowboarders have access to a diverse range of expansive bowls, thick alpine backcountry, and acres of groomed trails. All told, the resort boasts 22 chairlifts and 150 runs, the longest of which is six miles of riding bliss.

No matter what your skiing or snowboarding ability is, the unique mountain terrain offers an unparalleled experience that will show you just what “big sky” really means.

Big Sky Resort features include:
  • 400 inch average snowfall
  • 3,600 skiable acres
