Why Ski Big



Top 5 Reasons to Ski Big

1. Bigger is Better.

With two major ski areas, when you visit the Biggest Skiing in America, you'll never ski the same run twice. Big Sky Resort boasts 5,750 acres of skiable terrain - that's the size of 5.65 Golden Gate Parks! And, the summit of Lone Peak is as tall as 15 Golden Gate Bridges.

2. We're au naturel.

Unlike many California ski resorts, all of our terrain is completely natural. From deep powder turns to cruising down groomed runs, you'll find exactly what you're looking for. Enjoy the slopes that Mother Nature blessed us with in Big Sky. Oh, and we have 90% natural snow. No need to turn on the snow machines here!

3. Powder. Lots of soft, fluffy powder.

Our annual snowfall averages around 400+ inches - that's over 4 stacked city buses! Plus, with massive terrain, you'll be sure to find areas hat have been untouched. Go ahead, make your mark on our mountain.

4. No crowds.

Forget sitting in traffic and driving for hours to get to the mountains. At the Biggest Skiing in America you won't find any lines, or traffic, or crowds, just plenty of adrenaline. There are less than 1 million people living in Montana. There are over 7 million people in the San Francisico, Oakland and San Jose area - that must be really crowded!

5. More than just skiing.

Skiing is great. But there's so much mroe to see and do during your Montana ski vacation. Go on, be adventurous. You can go dog sledding, ice skating, snowmobiling, zip-lining, enjoy a romantic sleigh ride, or just relax by the fire. Plus, Yellowstone National Park is less than 1 hour from Big Sky. Enjoy the majestic views of snow capped mountains, streaming geysers, dramatic canyons, wildlife and much more.
