Big Sky services its 4,350 feet of vertical via 24 chair lifts and 12 surface lifts. The ski area has a summit elevation of 11,166 feet and sees an average annual snowfall of more than 400 inches. The resort has been lauded for it's incredible vertical drop and also the very minimal wait times due to it's advanced lift system. 

The resort is the basecamp to Yellowstone National Park and provides daily shuttles to Yellowstone’s west entrance. The resort has everything one would expect from a modern ski resort, including the Big Sky Mountain Village which features a variety of dining, lodging (including vacation rentals) and shopping possibilities.
