Big Sky Resort: Big Sky, Montana.  The mountains are beckoning...Yet none more so than those of Montana.  Our mountains epitomize the reason you’ve decided to take a mountain vacation.  Come here and you’ll find fewer people, more space, more grandeur and bigger sky.  
You can hear the call above all the rest.  The magnificent beauty of a Big Sky winter is matched only by the magnificence of our skiing.  Big Sky Resort is consistently recognized by national magazines for its beauty, challenging and diverse terrain and lack of lift lines.
