Big Sky Group Guide

Welcome to Big Sky Resort! On behalf of the team and the Big Sky community, we are thrilled you’ve chosen our resort for your group trip this year.

Big Sky is a special place that takes skiing seriously. Surrounded by the beauty of the Greater Yellowstone Region, snow consistently falls on 5,850 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from cruisy groomers to bucket list descents.

This guide will help you navigate through the basics of visiting Big Sky, whether you’re a first-timer or a frequent visitor. Planning a ski vacation takes a lot of logistics – and we’re here to make it as seamless as possible.

We’re so excited to have you here!


  • The Snow Report

    Let us introduce you to our snow reporters, Joe and Mario. Both have hundreds of ski days at Big Sky, and they’re here to let you in on their secrets. Every morning, they take a look at the weather and overnight snowfall and bundle it into an informative report for guests to learn from. Whether you’re here for a week or taking a day trip from Bozeman, you won’t want to miss out on their commentary.

  • Conditions Pages

    Big Sky's lifts and trails range across many varieties of terrain and aspects. Lift and trail closures can happen at any time due to conditions, maintenance, and weather. Check live conditions reports on the website (or the app) to ensure you can get to where you want to go—and back!

  • Download the App

    Even if you know the mountain like the back of your hand, we recommend downloading the Big Sky App. It has all the trail maps pre-loaded, and it also has up-to-date lift and trail status, so you can check what’s open before heading to a new spot.

Ski & Ride

Lone Peak Tram



Explore Lone Peak in a whole new way. The new Lone Peak Tram travels to the top of Lone Mountain, providing challenging and dynamic terrain, a stunning viewpoint, and a spectacular ride. Ski down or just go for the views—the tram can now be accessed by green runs, making it great for skiers and riders of all levels.

Group of skiers with an instructor


One of the best ways to become oriented with the mountain is to take a tour with our local Mountain Hosts. Big Sky Mountain Hosts lead free orientation tours of the resort every day, weather and ski conditions permitting. Tours usually last about 90 minutes and are designed for intermediate skiers and above. Tours are given on green and blue runs only.

For any group requests, the Mountain Host Team must be notified in advance to determine availability. Please contact 406-600-4344 or

If you're craving more advanced terrain, we recommend booking a lesson or guide with our Mountain Sports School.

Ski Valet at Big Sky Resort


We provide secure daytime and overnight storage for your skis and boards in Mountain Village. Simply drop off your equipment with one of our attendants, and we will store it away until you are ready to hit the slopes again. Ski Valet is located on the slopes next to the Ramcharger 8 and Swift Current 6 lifts. Ski Valet is free when you rent equipment from one of our rental shops or stay in the Huntley Lodge, Shoshone Condominiums, Summit Hotel, or the Village Center.


Lit up trees in the Enchanted Forest


There are so many ways to get outside and enjoy the magic of winter off of your skis or board. Explore nighttime in the mountains in the Enchanted Forest, take a peaceful snowshoeing tour, or relax your mind and body at Solace Spa and Recovery Lounge. If you’re looking for something more active, explore the many miles of Nordic skiing at the Big Sky Nordic Center, and take a lesson if it’s a new sport to you! No matter your preference, your rest days and evenings off-mountain will be great experiences on their own.
