No LIft LInes, Huge Terrain, Challenging, tons of snow, inexpensive
no restaurants, no nightlife, no village pretty much nothing but skiing
big sky is simply amazing. there is so much variety of terrain. when i was there it hadnt snowed for a week but there was still powder all over the place. you will never get bored skiing here. there is tons of challenging terrain enough that you never have to hike or traverse. the place is super quiet. it was rare that there ever was someone in front of us in the lift line even during presidents week. on the other hand if you are looking for a place for restaurants and night life dont come here. there are hardly any restaurants in the area. most of them can only be reached by car from the village. i recommend staying in a town home or condo , renting a car and cooking yourself. it is very easy to access from bozeman and the drive isnt too bad. basically if you are a true hard core skier big sky is your destination. however if you are looking for nightlife and glitz look elsewhere as this doesn't exist at big sky.
