Hitting the Winter Slopes in Big Sky Country

Who isn't a fan of skiing in Big Sky, Montana?!  If you've been there, you already know about that Big Sky Resort receives an average of 400 inches (1,000 centimeters) of snow each year while sporting more than 150 named runs spread over 3 mountains.


Opening Day is Right Around the Corner!

And if you haven't been there yet, Big Sky Resort's close proximity to Yellowstone National Park and their popular Ski & Stay Free Program for Kids 10 & Under, is enough to entice every family to plan there Montana ski vacation.  They also offer a Ski & Stay Package with up to 25% off and Frequent Sky Card $20 Savings.  Big Sky Resort opens for the 2012-2013 winter season on November 22nd.

All Abilities & Ages

Big Sky Resort is well known for offering some of the best snow sport schools available in the US.  There are dedicated runs for novice (534 acres), intermediate (1,000+ acres), advanced (1,500+ acres) and additional runs for experts (762 acres).  With an average of only 2,000 people on the Big Sky Resort slopes per day, this translates into short lines for the lifts and wide open spaces to ski.



Be Well-Equipped

It pays (literally) to make sure you're well outfitted before heading to the slopes.  I love this colorful Berghaus Mount Asgard Hybrid Jacket for women and this adorable waterproof Trespass Phoebe Jacket for girls.

Day Tripping to Yellowstone

Big Sky Resort is just 18 miles north of Yellowstone National Park so don't miss out on this bonus vacation opportunity.  There are opportunities to enjoy cross country skiing, take a snowmobile or wildlife viewing snowcoach tour, snow shoe tour, or to participate in Ranger or Concessioner-Led programs to learn more about wolves, geysers, grizzlies and more.
