Big Sky

Overview

When Big Sky linked up with Moonlight basin and agreed a joint lift pass the area became the biggest linked ski area in the USA (bigger than Vail). The skiing in Big Sky suits all levels but with the emphasis on intermediate to advanced terrain, beginners are well catered for but it is a long way to go for complete beginners. The village is close to the ski lift making for a very ski convenient resort. The lack of crowds on the mountain is really quite staggering.

Positive

  • America's biggest ski area
  • Very quiet slopes
  • Great mixed ability resort

Negative

  • Little nightlife
  • Resort lacks charm

Offslope/apres ski

Not really a non-skiers destination and if you want to party there are better places to go.
