Snow Stake FAQs

Measuring snowfall at Big Sky Resort, The Biggest Skiing in America, is unusually challenging due the massive size of skiable terrain and dynamic weather conditions. Snow quality and depth often vary from one zone of the mountain to another on the same day, especially given 300 degrees of skiing off of Lone Peak and all the different aspects available to ski. As a result, Big Sky Ski Patrol and Snow Reporters use a variety of resources to report the most accurate depiction of snowfall at the Resort on any given day.
