Skiing in Big Sky, Montana
Big Sky is home to some of the most diverse mountain terrain ensuring skiers and snowboarders a varied and challenging ride. From the top of Lone Peak, you can glide down the 2,000 vertical foot descent into a powder filled bowl, weave through the wild backcountry of the Bavarian Forest, and start it all over again with the dramatic rise of the Lone Peak Tram. There are almost twice as many acres of skiable terrain as skiers, so you’re sure to have plenty of elbow room.
Cross-country and alpine backcountry skiers have a myriad of choices when it comes to fresh snow. Riders can venture next door to Porcupine Creek or Beehive Basin, visit areas of the neighboring Gallatin National Forest, or try a guided tour of Yellowstone. Local shops can prepare you for everything you’ll encounter out there, providing rental equipment, gear, clothing, and trail maps.
Whatever you choose to do, you are certain to find adventure in Big Sky’s wild mountains. Read below for some great options available:
