Mountain Stats

Big Sky Resort is called the Biggest Skiing in America, due to the sensation of carving out turns on endless terrain under an expansive big sky, where crowds and traffic get left behind. Big Sky Resort is certainly BIG, with a magnitude of terrain for every level, as well as a significant degree of unfathomable steeps, accessed 300 degrees off of the Lone Peak Tram. Powder stashes can be found consistently throughout Big Sky due to the most consistent snowfall in the Northern American Rockies. There are more snowcovered acres to be found than skiers, with about two acres per skier on the busiest day, which means a safer, more liberating mountain experience. 

Compare your experience at Big Sky to others around the nation, and it's easy to see why Big Sky Resort is the Biggest Skiing in America.
