Montana is not on everyone's ski bucket list, but it's growing. Most people think of Montana for fly-fishing, bison chasing, bighorn sheep-spotting, ranches and road trips to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Part of us wants to keep the secret of how sensational the skiing is at Big Sky. It is truly one of our favorite western ski destinations.

To all the ski resorts I have been around the world... BigSly has won my eternal love. Maybe because Im growing older and walking away from large crowds but BigSky is the least crowded resort ever... even at full capacity you barely cross path with anyone beside the intermediate and popular slopes. Little friendly town center full of life. Very... More

Big Sky Resort truly is a vacation away. Endless skiable terrain with little traffic on the slopes and short lines at the lift. All lifts are updated and move quickly, making laps all day a dream come true. The tram up to Lone Peak carries 15 which doesn't overcrowd the terrain and stunning views up top. The resort boasts endless runs for skiers... More

Hidden gem of the Wasatch front. When the powder dumps it stays for days unlike the big names of Snowbird and Alta. A laid back vibe where with folks don't take themselves too seriously, but take their skiing and riding seriously. Fun for everyone!... More

I've stayed at that resort once back in 2004. As a native of the southernmost part of Texas, I can really ski very well, especially on the bunny slopes. Skiing is my favorite sport to perform.

Big Sky is one of my favorite mountains in the United States. From its family friendly environment to scenic views it makes everyone feel welcome. It has short lift lines with great groomers or head to the top of the mountain for great bowls and chutes.

Love Big Sky. Of all my travels, Big Sky is the best skiing I've ever had in one place. Seemed like I got fresh tracks every run. And where else can you get a bison cheeseburger for lunch?!
Very Good!4 / 5Jun 03, 2013
This resort has the best snow conditions with the shortest lines! It's instantly back up the mountain once you reach the bottom. There are long runs, even for beginners. In three words, more ride time! But no need to tell anyone about it because I'd like to keep those lines non-existent!
Superb!5 / 5Apr 03, 2013
Big Sky has lots of snow (normally anyway). There are many different runs and a large area with a reasonable amount og skiers
