Big Mountain Experience Karen Anderson, Senior Ski Specialist

"Aside from the huge ski area and variety of terrain, the thing that attracts skiers to Big Sky is how quiet it is on the slopes - lift lines here are often non-existent. Then of course there’s the snow, with the resort boasting an impressive record. The mountain village is compact, and the nearby town of Big Sky offers further variety of eating and entertainment options. Big Sky makes a great twin centre option with Jackson Hole, and I think combining the two resorts in one trip is a hard combination to beat."
