New Opening Day + Extended April Season = Longest Winter in Big Sky History

BIG SKY, MT - (August 14, 2023) - There’s a new opening date in town, and it’s the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. This season (and all future years from here on out), Big Sky Resort is starting winter a little earlier, with a planned opening date to fall on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  

“Our shift to an earlier opening gives our guests and team members more time to celebrate opening day and Thanksgiving with family and friends, and more skiing to look forward to in November,” said Troy Nedved, general manager, Big Sky Resort.  

Planned operating dates for the resort’s 50th anniversary season are Wednesday, November 22 - Sunday, April 28, for a total of 159 ski days, the longest season in Big Sky history.  

Today marks 100 days until Big Sky Resort’s (new) opening day.
