Get the lay of the land with local Mountain Host tours
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. Hosts will point out the advanced and expert runs and can answer questions regarding all of the terrain.
Tours meet in the Mountain Village base area to the right of the Swift Current chair, in front of the learning area. Look for Mountain Host volunteers in green jackets. Please arrive five minutes before the tour so participants can be grouped according to skiing ability and terrain interests.

For first-timers to Big Sky, we recommend booking a private lesson to have an instructor show you around. These experts will help you figure out the best spots on the mountain for what you’re looking to ski based on your ability level. For those looking to push the limits, booking a Tram Guide is the best and safest way to venture into Big Sky’s high-alpine expert terrain.
Big Sky Resort Mountain Hosts are a volunteer group of skiers and riders who are passionate about sharing their knowledge of the mountain. Besides the tours, Mountain Hosts will share directions, information, recommendations, and, if you're lucky, their favorite spots to ski. Look for the green jackets in the base areas or on the hill!
