Biggest Skiing in America

With 5,750 acres of skiable terrain, and starring Lone Peak at an elevation of 11,166 feet high, Big Sky Resort appeals to skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. Some runs are close to six miles long! Our annual snowfall typically reaches 400+ inches, which means you're likely to find some fresh powder and make your own tracks.

Temperature & Weather

We see it all – summer, fall, winter, and spring. Each season has its own special trait here in Big Sky. No matter what the weather, Big Sky is a beautiful place to be.

In the summer we have gorgeous sunsets and temperatures average in the 70s and 80s and the nights are clear and cool.

The fall is majestic as they Aspen trees turn from green to golden yellow. It's the best time of year for hiking and fishing.

The winters are magical and when the ground is covered in glistening snow you'll feel like you're living in a snow globe.

Spring brings a sense of renewal and the excitement for warmer months and longer days.


During the summer months, visitors can catch a trophy trout on the infamous Gallatin River, explore one of the world's top ten hikes (Beehive Basin), as voted by Fox News, horseback ride in the Rocky Mountains, or channel their inner Ansel Adams by photographing wildlife and picturesque scenery in Yellowstone National Park.

Winter in Big Sky is magical. Whether it's the 5,750 acres of skiable terrain at Big Sky Resort, the miles of classic Nordic ski trails that meander throughout Alpine forests, a sleigh ride dinner, a dog sled adventure, or just a day relaxing at the spa, there's never a shortage of things to do in Big Sky when the weather is cold.
