Big Sky is tucked in the towering mountains of southwest Montana, and is one of America's largest ski resorts. As its name reflects, Big Sky is known for its panorama, with views of ten mountain ranges - even all the way to the Tetons. Due to it's relatively off-the-beaten-path location, Big Sky lacks the crowds and lift lines that can be common in other ski destinations. The resort's 5800 acres of terrain means there's always space for everyone.
Big Sky is the ultimate skiing destination for skiers looking for a little more solitude. The resort's renowned steeps and impressive backcountry access draws in big mountain skiers, while the El Dorado and Lone Tree trails attract families and those newer to skiing. With Montana powder that can reach up to 30 feet, Big Sky is sure to please. The base village has a wide variety of dining, shopping and spas for days off the slopes. The region also boasts plenty of non-ski activities like snowshoeing, Nordic trails, and Yellowstone winter tours.
