Big Sky Reviews & Tips (5)

It takes a heck of a Liftopia ticket for a Montanan to actually show up here. So expensive, and getting worse each year. Also, it just doesn't feel like a locals hill at all anymore.

The tram is where it's at for the true experts! If you carry your peeps and shovel, you can ski the BIG Coloiur at Big SKY. Worth buying the lone peak pass if you want to ski off of the tram on the north face snow field down into Moolight. Sick terrain!

Skied the entire Mountain and loved every moment. Snow on day 3 but we found great spots even without new snow before. No matter the weather you can find perfect runs. Family who were not regular skiers had terrific instructions with Sue and great service with both Black Tie and Grizzly Outfitters! NO LINES EVER! I love Big Sky, Thanks Liftopia.

This hill was alot of fun. Great for the whole family. The first day it was blue bird with fresh. My only complaint is there were a bunch of rocks covered with some new snow. Not riding here before was unaware of these hazords and got 4 core shots. Down by the gondola there were lots of good lines being put down and was fun to watch. There is a poker table in the bar so that was a good time as well. I will go back here again.
