Conditions on the North Summit have been stellar all week.
AFTER A BIG snow dump on Monday night and a bluebird powder day on Tuesday, conditions have stayed stellar all over the mountain. Head to Challenger for smooth, wind-buffed powder, and hit the trees for fluffy stashes.
But for the best snow, sign out for the North Summit Snowfield – conditions have only improved since Tuesday’s powder day, with sometimes bony sections like Rips now nicely filled in with soft and creamy snow. You’ll need a Biggest Skiing in America ticket (The run is technically on Moonlight terrain, but can only be accessed by Big Sky’s tram), but the upgrade is worth it for perfect turns on the north face of Lone Peak.
The forecast is calling for snow over the next three days with a total accumulation of about 12 inches. Keep your entire quiver close at hand – all-mountain skis may be great for today, but you could need your pow skis at the drop of a hat.
Check out the Big Sky Snow Report and the 7-day forecast from NOAA to stay updated on conditions.

Runs off of Challenger lift are smooth and wind-buffed.
