Snow Reporter Comments

Good morning everyone! If you haven’t looked out your window within the past 24hrs… SNOW! There is snow everywhere! I hope you guys are just as excited as we are here at Big Sky Resort! Time for round two with Lone Peak.

Today’s forecast is going to be cloudy skies with snow during the day and into the night. We have received a trace-1” of new snow overnight and 3-4” in the past 24hrs. Our mid mountain base is at 25” and our upper mountain is at 37”. Temperatures will climb up to the low 30s F today with a low around 20 F with West winds at 21mph.

Please be cautious when skiing or riding due to the fact that early season conditions DO EXIST, we care about your safety and want you to have fun out there. So please pay attention to where you are going and what you are doing.

We are 43% open with 2,479 acres. Patrol is working hard to open as much terrain as possible.

Please note that the Challenger chair lift is currently on hold for maintenance. To access Challenger terrain, please use the Headwaters chair lift. However, please be aware that Headwaters terrain is not currently open.

Looks like it’s going to get better and better out there today! Get your pants on and go ski! It’s a pow day at Big Sky Resort!

And remember… Keep the vibe alive!
