Getting on the mountain just got a little easier. Recognizing the need to improve our parking system, Big Sky Resort has added more than 350 new complimentary parking spots across the resort. To further support a streamlined parking experience, the former Gold lot will convert into a new free carpool lot when you travel with three or more people. Aligning with the resort’s sustainability initiative, the ForeverProject, carpooling is an easy way to reduce our travel and commuting impact and frees up parking space on busy days.

Season-long Carpool Challenge

Ride Together, Shred Forever

Ride Together, Shred Forever | Big Sky Resort x Go Gallatin

Big Sky Resort has partnered with GoGallatin to incentivize skiers to help reduce carbon emissions by carpooling and taking public transit to the resort whenever possible. This season, organize a carpool or take the bus to get to the resort and be entered to win one of six $500 gift cards to Big Sky Resort. Join the challenge and start logging your trips on GoGallatin.org. Tell your friends and share a ride!

Cashless Resort

Beginning Winter 2022-23, Big Sky Resort will no longer accept cash as a form of payment. Cash may still be used as a form of gratuity, and non-Big Sky Resort-owned vendors may still accept cash. ATMs will still be available at the Resort in the Huntley Lodge and Exchange.

For guests who do not have non-cash forms of payment when they arrive in Big Sky, reverse ATMs that dispense debit cards are available, and Mountain Services will accept cash in exchange for a Big Sky gift card. Learn more here.
