Originally opened as the Red Star Camp in the winter of 1936-37, Sleeping Giant Ski Area officially opened in 1938 and is one of America's oldest ski areas. Today we have a unique terrain park, twice the vertical from the old days, challenging tree skiing & boarding, a carpet for those just starting out and all of this just ... 3 miles from Yellowstone National Park. There is a real sense of family here. Lots of stories from yesteryear. If its not the uncrowded slopes that will convince you, it will be all the spectacular wildlife you see when you drive up from Cody, this place has a certain vibe that you won't find anywhere else. Check us out this winter! Read more

Sleeping Giant Reviews & Tips (4)

I was so impressed with the helpfulness of the staff. I was in town for only that one day and I'm a beginner skier. I was surprised when they didn't have any lockers but they assured me no one needed to lock their things up around there. They graciously held my wallet for me...and assigned me my own "escort" down the trail to show me the way....twice! (and at no extra cost) They also loaned me a pair of goggles. They also returned my wallet to me the next day because I accidentally left it there! The place is small and tons of little kids which does not bother me at all. But, if you're looking for some place like Heavenly in Lake Tahoe (waiting on lines for the ski lifts!) THIS IS NOT YOUR PLACE!

The upper park is awesome all made of wood. The lower park is fun to- slower nice pad o' butter!

The carpet area is good to learn. Stick to skiers left to start then move to the right. After that make Wild Bill of Bighorn Chair your first run. Oh and get the 'Go with the Pro' package- 3 days rentals, tickets, lessons for $99 then you get a few half price tickets when you finish!

Get to the Giant at opening on powder days! Locals sleep in so you and the 15 kids on the commuter bus have about 2 hours to yourself. SICK trees, short runs, lots o laps!
