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.

Very extensive area with terrain for all levels. Although this is often stated in promotional brochures, it is true for Big Sky.

The variety of trails available for the different levels of skill, along with the smaller crowds, makes Big Sky a great family destination.

Doesn't get the same dumps as Utah, but crowds are so non-existent that that snow (still plenty in most years) goes a long ways.
