Today's Summary

Happy Easter and Closing Day! It’s going to be another warm and sunny day at Big Sky Resort, which will be a great way to end a magnificent season. In the morning, head to the upper mountain for the best snow. Midmorning try exploring south facing terrain off Shedhorn and Dakota for corn snow. In the afternoon, head to Andesite and Spanish Peaks Terrain for the best spring snow.

We received no new snow since lifts closed yesterday. It has snowed 51 of the past 71 days. The expected high will be around 45° with a low tonight around 30°. West winds will blow at 5 to 15 mph. Our mid-mountain base is at 69” and Upper Mountain is 104”.

There were plenty of good, great, and epic days this year. The mantra of the 2013-2014 ski season was consistent snowfall. The seven day storm total stayed over 12 inches for most of January, February and March! At times we were fortunate enough to experience double digit snowstorms (10+ inches of pow!), and for the most part always had great snow!

Thank you to all the teams at Big Sky Resort that make this machine tick! It’s been a safe, fun and exciting season thanks to everyone’s hard work. We are looking forward to seeing everyone out for opening day next season!
