Equipment Policy

Big Sky Resorts lifts and terrain primarily accommodate skiers and snowboarders using traditional equipment that must include bindings and ski retention devices. The user must be able to load and unload the lifts safely and without assistance and must be on skis or snowblades. Devices without appropriate binding systems, restraining devices and foot passengers are not allowed on lifts or terrain. Recreational devices NOT allowed on Big Sky slopes at any time include sleds, toboggans and most other devices. Exceptions are made only for disabled skiers using acceptable adaptive equipment that include a binding and retention device. If the disabled skier cannot load, ride, or unload the lift by themselves safely, then they must be accompanied by their personal assistant. Snowbike / Snowbikers must wear snowblades or skis. Please contact the Snow Sports School or Mountain Services department if you have any questions as to whether your device is approved for use before purchasing your lift ticket.
