Riders Guide

Montana's mind-blowing resort has a total of 30 lifts, comprising of 8 surface lifts, and 22 other lifts that include double chairs, triple chairs, high-speed quads, and one tram for 15 people, taking you up to 300 trails anywhere within a time range of 3 to 12 minutes. There's a set of seven terrain parks of different levels with more than 100 features to try.

Parks and Pipes

Big Couloir, South Face, Screaming Left, and Bavarian Forest have claimed many an overconfident snowboarder with their natural features packed with treachery. They are all pulse-pounding, white-knuckle rides and Big Couloir simply has to be seen to be believed—no one will think poorly of you if you take one look, turn around, and go somewhere else that regular humans can actually board down. For some more controlled, artificial features, the phenomenal half pipe and feature-packed terrain park on Andesite, near Ambush Meadows. On the left of the pipe there are some fairly small beginner terrain park features. Below the half pipe is where intermediate to expert boarders go for lots of kickers, hits, rail slides, boxes, and tabletops.  Newbies can to the Cowpoke beginner's park loaded with small features to try, and Freestylers will be stoked to traverse the glades and chutes in the Freestyle Forest.

Out of Bounds

In a state such as Montana that is renowned around the world for its spectacular wintertime outdoor activities, there are few destinations that offer more fun than Big Sky. You can select from an astounding number of thrilling outdoor activities such as rock and ice climbing, ice skating, jeeping and off-road driving, snowcatting, sledding, cross-country skiing, hot air balloon rides, horseback riding, snowmobiling, and fishing. The resort boasts provides daily shuttles to Yellowstone National Park.

Hangout & Hookup

Big Sky's Mountain Village is where it all happens, après ski and rest during the long, crystal clear nights. The big four for raucous fun and ear-smashing music are Dante's Inferno, The Alpine Lounge, The Bambu Bar, and The Black Bear Bar. It may sound like an old movie by the California Governor, but the Crazy Austrian Show at Chet's Bar in the Huntley Lodge is a must see, and then you can drink the memories away at Chet's happy hour prices. Head down to the Meadow Village if you want to play some billiards, darts and poker, as The Allgoods Bar serves up refreshing brews. Down in the canyon you'll find more games at Buck's T-4 Game Room, and the roadhouse western bars The Half Moon Saloon and The Corral.
