Big Sky, Montana is a mountain town paradise during winter and the summer. Well known for the world-class Big Sky Resort and its close proximity to Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky is the ultimate winter destination.
1. Skiing at Big Sky Resort
Big Sky Resort aka The Biggest Skiing in America is a world-renowned ski resort. Most known for the iconic Lone Peak Tram and long perfect groomer runs, Big Sky is a great place for a ski trip. The mountain has plenty of terrain for beginners and family trips and also contains expert terrain for more experienced skiers.
2. Yellowstone National Park
Located just 45 minutes from Big Sky, Yellowstone is known for summer trips to the park. Most of the roads in the national park close during winter. But, the park is accessible via snow coach, snowmobile, and cross country skis. This brings a whole new experience to the calm, uncrowded national park.
3. Big Views and Starry Nights
Believe it or not, Big Sky has some amazing views and an even better night sky. The breathtaking views are everywhere in Montana. From the top of the Lone Peak Tram, you have views of 3 states, 2 national parks, and on a clear day, you can even see the Grand Teton.
While staying in Big Sky, the night sky is hard to look away from. We love looking up from our hot tub into the stars at night.
4. Ski In Ski Out
Unlike most ski destinations, the lodging around Big Sky Resort is built on the mountain. This means that select locations have no need for transportation to and from skiing. There are even some ski-in ski-out lodging options where you can put your skis on at your doorstep and ski to a lift!
5. Winter Activities
Other than skiing, there are countless activity options during the winter in Big Sky. Such as:
- Cross country skiing
- Ice skating
- Sleigh rides
Enjoy your winter adventure in Big Sky! And stay safe out there!
