Tucked away in the pristine Montana wilderness lies the awesome Big Sky ski area. Different by design, from other resort, visitors to OnTheSnow.com have chosen Montana's Big Sky Resort as the Favorite Overall resort in North America in 2009.
Liftlines are basically unheard of...quality accommodations are to be found at the base of the mountain. When the sun goes down, the nightlife kicks up its heels with over 20 places to eat, drink and be merry. Chet's Bar & Grill hosts the Crazy Austrians variety show and live poker. Whiskey Jack's serves up live music every weekend.
Perpetual blue skies. It's the details that move the mind and stir the soul. Details like 400 inches of annual snowfall or 3 mountains with lots of elbow room. Lift lines are basically non-existent here. The skiing and riding is the ultimate experience. Explore the backcountry on snowshoes or take a relaxing sleigh ride. The choice, like Big Sky itself, is all yours.
As if we weren't big enough for you already, the Big Sky Resort-Moonlight Basin interconnect gives you access to more skiing than anywhere else in the United States. With the Lone Peak Pass lift ticket, you can access 5,512 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~plus inches of annual snowfall make a day on the slopes something different for everyone.
