Explore Big Sky in new ways with a Guide

Whether you're dropping into the Big Couloir with an expert or skiing under the stars, our Mountain Sports School offers unique ski experiences that aren't based on instruction. Our guides are local experts and can help you make the most of your time on the mountain.

Please note that Big Sky Resort offers lessons based in two different meeting spots: Mountain Village and Madison Base. Offerings differ between the two locations, so please note at which location you have booked your lesson. Tram Guide First Tracks is only available in Mountain Village.
