Big Sky's scenic lift ride provides our summer visitors with a bird's eye view of the surrounding mountains. There are many trails on the mountain and around the area to enjoy. Passes or tickets are required for scenic chairlift access.

For Summer 2023, scenic lift access is scheduled from 10 a.m. - 4:40 p.m. daily on Ramcharger 8, Swift Current 6, and Explorer. Please note that while Ramcharger 8 and Swift Current 6 can be ridden up and down, Explorer can only be ridden uphill. From Explorer, we recommend taking the mile-long Huckleberry trail down the mountain. Construction zones will be marked on-resort and updates throughout the season will be posted on our website.

Big Sky Resort is closed for the summer season. We hope to see you next year!

Age Weekday Ticket Weekend Ticket

All scenic lift guests must have a reusable RFID Sky Card. You can reload your existing Sky Card or add a $0 card to your cart in the checkout process.
