Snowmaking Expansion

Summit Hotel Remodel

In Summer 2021, Big Sky added its largest ever snowmaking operation. Starting at the top of the Explorer Lift, the new system covers 33 acres across 3 trails and 2 terrain parks. Paired with the upgraded Swift Current 6 chairlift, this region of the mountain can be utilized in the early season with reduced reliance on snowfall.
