Welcome to Big Sky Resort in Big Sky, Montana, where an average of 400 inches of powder fall on 5,850+ skiable acres and 4,350 vertical feet. While renowned for big mountain terrain and tram access to the top of Lone Peak, this resort has something for everyone. No matter if you are learning how to ski for the very first time, or consider yourself the best skier on the mountain, Big Sky Resort promises to leave you with a permagrin and with memories to last a lifetime.
Big Sky Resort is called the Biggest Skiing in America, due to the sensation of carving out turns on endless terrain under an expansive big sky, where crowds and traffic get left behind. Big Sky Resort is certainly BIG, with a magnitude of terrain for every level, as well as a significant degree of unfathomable steeps, accessed 300 degrees off of the Lone Peak Tram. Powder stashes can be found consistently throughout Big Sky due to the most consistent snowfall in the Northern American Rockies. There are more snowcovered acres to be found than skiers, with more than an acre per skier on average, which means a safer, more liberating mountain experience.

Big Sky Resort has announced the installation of a major chairlift upgrade, Swift Current 6, for the 2021-2022 season. The new six-person, high speed chair with a signature Big Sky Blue Bubble and ultawide heated seats will also become the fastest six-person chairlift in North America. Swift Current 6 is the resort's next step in creating the most technologically-advanced lift network in North America, a key piller of the Big Sky 2025 vision. "Swift Current 6 replaces the current four-person chairlift with a state-of-the-art Doppelmayr D-Line technology," explains Stephen Kircher, CEO and president of Boyne Resorts, parent company of Big Sky Resort. "This technology offers guests reliability, efficiency, and a straggeringly fast, warm, and comfortable ride up to the iconic Lone Peak - America's Matterhorn. There will be no faster, safer, or more comfortable chairlift in North America."
