Lone Peak opens for skiing this Thursday - Thanksgiving Day.
THE BEGINNING of the Holiday season has two meanings in Big Sky, and while others may be scouring the pantry for their family pumpkin pie recipe and dusting off packed-away Christmas lights, Big Sky skiers are rooting through their garages (read: gear sheds) for their helmets and beacons. In Big Sky, Thanksgiving marks the beginning of ski season, a holiday worth celebrating all on its own.
And so it is that Big Sky Resort prepares for our big holiday – not only are the halls decked with holly, but the slopes are lined with snowmakers, the peak is packed with avalanche-managing explosives, and Swifty 2.0 terrain park is chock full of park features - 13 to be exact.
With a guaranteed 60 acres of terrain off Explorer and Ramcharger lifts set to open on Thursday, and Swift Current, the Triple, and Challenger ready to roll at the drop of a snowflake, we’re excited to give thanks for the start of another Big Sky ski season. After all, ‘tis the season for shredding.
Check out videos on early season snow, snow making, and Swifty 2.0 terrain park to see how things are shaping up for yourself. Lift tickets for opening day and weekend will be $49.
