Big Sky Resort is located on on the eastern face of Lone Mountain, Montana on Hwy 191, 45 miles south of Bozeman and 45 miles north of West Yellowstone. There is a reason Big Sky is so famous for pushing the limits of snow skiing. In addition to four bubble chairlifts, the ski resort also features four different types of terrain. From the world’s fastest chairlift to the most comfortable seating, this place has it all. The mountain village is the heart of all the action at the resort, with slopeside lodging, shopping, dining, and more.
Big Sky’s terrain parks are a great place to test your skills. The park has seven different types of terrain, including beginner and intermediate cruisers. There are plenty of black pixie cuts as well, with a good proportion of double blacks. The only drawback to this terrain is that half of the double black runs are accessible only by the Lone Peak Tram, which only carries 15 people every 4 hours. Even so, the snow is beautiful and the scenery is spectacular.
The town’s endless terrain has minimum wait times, which is a real bonus. Guests can experience the best of both worlds, without the crowded resorts. Apres-ski at the Montana Jack taproom is a must, especially if you want to get a chance to watch the NCAA championship basketball game from a high perch on the mountain.
Big Sky’s location makes it the perfect destination for adventurous skiers. Lone Peak, offers 4,350 feet of vertical. In addition to Lone Peak, there are many in-bounds zones that are suitable for beginners. The lift-served area at Big Sky is known for challenging those who want to push the limits of snow skiing. A ski resort that is surrounded by mountains, with a high altitude, will offer a truly breathtaking skiing experience.
The Lone Peak Tram at Big Sky Resort whisks skiers and riders up a sheer vertical face and delivers them to a skiing paradise at the top of Lone Mountain. At the summit, there are 360-degree views of 3 states, 2 national parks, countless peaks, and distant mountain ranges. It’s mind blowing.Visit Big Sky
