Recommendations

The recent Big Sky Resort-Moonlight Basin interconnect makes Big Sky one of the biggest ski resorts in the United States, but even before the merger, it had an uncanny way of staying uncrowded, even during peak season.

Big Sky Resort gives you access to more skiing than anywhere else in the United States. With a Big Sky Resort lift ticket, you can access 5,750 skiable acres and endless ways to navigate 4,350 feet of vertical drop. At 11,166 feet it's easy to see Lone Peak's appeal to every age and level of skier and boarder. Runs up to six miles long and glades and bowls covered in 400+ inches of annual snowfall make a day on the slopes something different for everyone.
