Reviews for Big Sky
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Big Sky has incredible terrain, but equally as important it has a lift system that allows skiers to quickly access this terrain without standing in line or traversing all over the mountain. In addition, despite being a lot bigger than it was when I first visited in 1996, Big Sky has kept the personal touch and customer focus that I remember from my earlier visits. I had an issue this year with my Mountain Collective reservation that was resolved within minutes of my email to the ticket managers. They were so kind and cared enough to call me back to make sure I was taken care of! Way above and beyond! I have also had very positive interactions with Big Sky Ski Patrol and instructors. The people working at Big Sky are stoked to be there and happy to help elevate your experience in any way they can. When I ski at Big Sky, I feel like I'm a valued member of an exclusive club. I've skied all over the country Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, the east and in my opinion Big Sky is easily the best skiing in America. It remains my "home" mountain and I look forward to returning at least once every year!... Full Review
Thos is one of the best mountain I’ve skied. They have trails for everyone. It’s called Big Sky for a reason. This place is massive. It took my friend and I 4 days to ski every area of the mountain. I will definitely be back in the future. ... Full Review
Food is important when skiing. Pricey junk food, IMO plus lift tix cost is too expensive. Yellowstone Club should just buy the whole area up.... Full Review
Perfect place to go if you are a more experienced skier of any age because the snow and terrains are perfect. Perfect for families. Lacking on party places for wild night life.
Will be number one spot for my family once young ones snow how to ski better. Absolutely beautiful and loved not having the crowds. Everything is very convenient. Everyone very friendly. Wish their green slopes were truly green slopes then young ones would have not been petrified since this was their first ski trip. ... Full Review
If you want to ski, there is no better place. If you want to dine out, lots of room for improvement. Covid crowds are receding. Looking forward to more sustainable growth.... Full Review
Big Sky is one of my favorite ski resorts for the snow, size, and terrain, but the tram add on is infuriating. The base villages and lodges are underwhelming for a resort it’s size and it isn’t very well run. Lifts like Lone tree, iron horse, lone moose, and headwaters really need some attention. Big sky has great skiing but don’t go there if you expect convenience or your on a budget.

Just finishing a full Covid week here. Big Sky has amazing and serious terrain. Hats off to a very professional patrol crew that maintain it.
We were disappointed with the amount of real estate development and the crowds. I doubt we will be back it’s just a bit too developed for our taste and the lift lines - even with Covid limitations can get a bit ridiculous. ... Full Review
I have been skiing in Big Sky since 2006 and own a property. We have lived through ups and downs. Unfortunately now the uniqueness and pleasantness of Big Sky is over. The real estate developers are maxing it out and the mountain is now MORE crowded than Vail. Boyne, Big Sky's owner, has always been known as a poor operator and that is still the case. They have a great asset but consistently under invest in it. it has been sad to watch happen. The lifts and the roads are at least five years behind in keeping up with the demand. it is going to be a miserable ski experience until they catch up, if they can. with two high end hotels (Montage and One and Only) coming on line in the next two years, it will only exacerbate the problem....

If you want to do some serious skiing, come to Big Sky. Great mountain, beautiful scenery, runs for every ability, and soft snow. I love this place. It is probably my favorite resort overall. Not a lot of nightlife if that is what you are looking for though, but its a trade off.... Full Review
they will kick you off the mountain if your closterphobic and like to breath... i was skiing/carrying on with my four year old.... i had my mask on... I don't do well and can not talk with a mask on i gasp for air its mentally a disabling trait to have in times like these... so i have my nose out... this doesn't match Big Skys policy, they do not cater to those that cant comply mentally or physically... they kicked me off the great outdoors mountain skiing with my four year old son becuase my nose was showing.......
