Big Sky, Montana lives up to its name, with expansive vistas that stretch out over seemingly endless miles of stunning scenery. Home to soaring mountaintops and bountiful powder, Montana offers limitless chances for exploration and fun in the wintertime. Big Sky recently combined with Moonlight Basin resort making it the largest skiing area in the U.S. with more than 5,500 ski-able acres. Massive terrain topped with an average over 400 inches of annual snowfall makes for epic skiing. The resort’s terrain offers long, winding groomers, steep chutes, powder-filled bowls, and diverse backcountry terrain. Escape city life for Montana’s Big Sky country!
