Big Sky Reviews & Tips (4)

Hostile tourist-focused ticket pricing. Montanans: Big Sky does not want you on their hill. Please leave.

A ski area for the rich and stupid. Don't forget your wallet. A huge mountain for those with money to throw away. NO AREA IS WORTH 110.00 a day.

Lots of room for everyone. The guys skiied the peak, off the Tram, while the women skiied Andesite and the lower mtn. They were happy, and we were very respectful. This mtn is huge. Make a mistake, and you could die. The lower mtn and Andesite mtn are steaper than most ski area expert terrain. Access off the tram and two other chairs is sick. This is real big mtn skiing. Snow was excellent while we were there, and weather was good, however it was cold (-10) one morning. So bring warm clothes and a beacon and shovel and talk to the Ski Patrol for sign-out runs. I will see you there this year again. I have spent 15 days exporing this mtn and not seen it all, and now they add two adjoining resorts that just blows my mind. Lets make some turns!!!

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.
