If you haven’t looked at the forecast lately, well let me tell you… SNOW! Yes Big Sky is expecting snow for the next week. On top of that tomorrow is the Super Bowl! If you don’t know where to watch it, come to Whiskey Jacks! Festivities begin at 3:30pm and kickoff at 4:30pm. Who are you cheering for?

For today’s forecast expect partly sunny skies with a chance of snow during the day and into the night. We have received no new snow overnight and no new snow in the past 24hrs. Our mid mountain base is at 37” and our upper mountain is at 55”. Today’s high will around 30 F with a low around 10 F with North West winds at 25-30 mph.

Ski with care at all times everyone! We care about your safety and want you to have as much fun as possible out on the mountain. So please pay attention to where you are going and what you are doing.

Let’s welcome Mother Nature! Do whatever it takes, let’s see some snow dances. For all of you Powder Hounds you need to be patient! Patience is a virtue. For today, groomers are going to be prime. Go shred some fresh corduroy. Check out the terrain parks with all your buddies! If you’re feeling adventures, go check out the Tram.

And remember… Keep the vibe alive!

"I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature." -Paulo Coelho
