The Biggest Skiing in America awaits you.
300 degrees of skiing off of Lone Peak, surrounded by three other mountains, spans 5,850 acres of terrain to explore. If you're just starting out on the snow, 2,300 of those acres are beginner and intermediate terrain that's perfect for learning and improving your technique. For the experts, Big Sky provides lift-served access to some of the most aggressive in-bounds terrain in the world.
Navigate the mountain via the most technologically advanced lift network in North America—from Ramcharger 8's heated seats and weatherproof bubbles to Swift Current 6's unprecedented speed as the fastest chairlift in North America. With four bubble chairlifts in total, warm-up breaks and cross-mountain traverses don't have to interrupt your day.
Explore the growing hub of adventurism in Big Sky's Mountain Village. With slopeside lodging like the newly remodeled Huntley Lodge and Summit Hotel, shopping, and dining, Mountain Village is the heart of it all.
