$13 million upgrade to Big Sky’s Mountain Village underway
Big Sky, Mont. (May 15, 2019) - This summer, Big Sky Resort is investing $13 million in re-envisioning its dining, après ski, restrooms and lockers in the Mountain Village base area. Renovations are currently underway to introduce a modern food hall for the 2019-2020 ski season.
All-new cuisine options will greet skiers next winter, including sushi flown in fresh from both coasts, a ramen station, a taqueria, stone-fired pizza, specialty coffee and crepe stations, plus a deli and grill serving soups, sandwiches, and other items.
The new food hall offers plentiful indoor seating for guests taking a ski break, warming up, or grabbing a bite to eat. Seating capacity will nearly double with an increase of more than 350 seats for use from breakfast to après. Après ski will be enlivened with new outdoor decks boasting prime views of Lone Mountain and a cozy outdoor fireplace. The enhanced deck will seat more than 250 people, perfect for soaking up the sun and drinking in the quintessential Big Sky views.
The guest experience will become more seamless, convenient and fresh from arrival to departure. Guests first will be greeted by improvements to the facility's lower level, including complimentary day-use cubbies, day and seasonal-use lockers, a new changing area and expanded bathrooms to start the day in comfort.
A new public elevator installed in the central core of the building will be available to all, including skiers arriving to the 15-minute drop-off zone in Mountain Village, who may want to hit the slopes as quickly as possible. The elevator will enable guests to access retail and restaurants effortlessly, including those at the brand new food hall on the third floor. The elevator will be most impactful for the large contingent of special ability recreationalists who visit Big Sky.
The renovated common area will also serve as a flexible event venue with a capacity of over 750 people.
Total restroom capacity in the renovated space will increase by more than 50 percent. Staff locker facilities on the lower level will also being expanded and modernized.
