TO MONTANA & BIG SKY COUNTRY!|
Big Sky is the western skiing experience you've dreamed about: unbridled
adventure, abundant snow, uncrowded terrain, ski-in and ski-out lodging and
a natural friendliness that comes from small-town life in this corner of the
Rockies. On most days, you'll find more skiable acres than skiers on the
slopes. That's why Big Sky is famous for short or non-existent lift lines
and uncrowded slopes.
Two mountains of blissful terrain please everyone from the power wedge to
the fast and fearless. The ingredients are simple: massive acreage, the most
total vertical feet in the United States, and a lift network including high
speed quads that makes most skiers vanish onto nearly-private runs. Blend in
the marvels of nearby Yellowstone National Park and you couldn't ask for a
more perfect destination.
Above-tree-line skiing gives Big Sky a European flavor accentuated by the
breathtaking tram to the summit of Lone Peak. Even the timid can enjoy the
view from 11,166 feet and have the comfort of a round-trip ride. The Tetons,
Yellowstone Park and over ten mountain ranges can be seen from this
magnificent pyramid of glacial rock. "The Biggest Skiing in America" Big Sky
gives you access to more skiing than
anywhere in the US.
