Update on 2020-21 Season Passes


To ensure passholders are provided with a full winter for the 20-21 season, Big Sky Resort promises that the resort will operate for 140 days of skiing and riding. In the event that Big Sky Resort cannot deliver on this commitment, passholders will be provided a credit toward a 2021-22 season pass.

Passholders also have the option to roll over the value of an unused 2020-21 pass as a credit towards a 2021-22 pass for any reason through December 10, 2020, at no cost. Worry-Free Winter Assurance is included at no additional charge with every season pass product purchased by June 15, 2020.


The Double Black pass offers daily access with no blackout dates throughout the season, with unlimited access to the Tram.


The deadline to purchase these passes at the early season rates is extended to June 15, 2020, with an option for a payment plan. The payment plan allows purchasers to pay their pass in five, interest-free scheduled installments before the winter season.

Season passes will go off sale after June 15, 2020. As the resort works to accommodate social distancing in operations next season, there may be a limit set on the number of season passes available to purchase in the fall. 


As a token of gratitude to the Big Sky community, Big Sky Resort is activating Loyalty Pricing to returning 2018-19 and 2019-20 passholders who wish to purchase a 2020-21 season pass.

Loyalty Pricing offers up to a $150 discount when purchasing a 20-21 season pass product. Loyalty pricing is available until June 15, 2020.
