Big Sky Resort offers a variety of season passes to fit your needs and budget. You can find your perfect pass based on how often you ski, what days you ski, and whether or not you want access to the Lone Peak Tram. Explore all of Big Sky's season passes for the 2023-24 season. Big Sky Resort is also included on the Ikon and Mountain Collective passes.
Our passes offer more value for frequent skiers at Big Sky Resort. All passholders receive discounts on retail, dining, lodging, and Basecamp activities. For passes with blackout dates or limited access, you can save on purchasing lift tickets when your pass isn't valid.
