Today's Summary

Good morning everyone!

Put on the sunscreen it is going to be another sunny day here at Big Sky Resort. Expect the northern slopes to ski well after being buffed by the winds last night. As temperatures warm up the southern slopes should only improve. Grab some friends, enjoy the corduroy, gorgeous sights and sun shine here at Big Sky Resort!

Today’s forecast is calling for sunny skies. The expected high will be around 30F. The winds are blowing from the west at 15-35mph but should taper off and calm as the valley inversion burns off. The mid-mountain base is at 45” and the upper mountain base is at 67”.

Please ski with caution, be aware of where you are skiing or riding and what you are doing. We care about your safety and want you to have the best experience ever here at Big Sky Resort. Know the code.

Come hang out with your friends at Big Sky Resort today. It will be another stellar day to take in the sights! Be sure to pack extra layers today as the mountain will vary from the base to the summit. If you are looking to warm up after skiing today, go to Whiskey Jacks for some hot beverages and live music. Please check in later for the upper mountain update. If you’re on the go and can’t check online, call 406-995-5900 for the snowphone updates!

Peace be the journey… cool running’s
