Big Sky Hotels

A skier’s dream, Big Sky is one of America’s premier winter holiday destinations. With Montana’s Rocky Mountains providing a blockbuster backdrop, the resort lures thrill seekers to its playground all year round. From cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, to zip lining, hiking, and mountain biking in the summer months – there’s an adventure for everyone. If further hijinks are sought, the geological grandeur of Yellowstone National Park sits less than an hour’s drive away.

Things to see

Set amongst the snowcapped splendor of Montana’s Lone Mountain, Big Sky is America’s largest skiing resort. With 5,750 skiable acres, over 250 runs, and a vertical drop of 4,350 feet, there’s some serious skiing and snowboarding to be had. With endless bowls and glades to tackle, visitors can also take in breathtaking vistas from the mountain’s 11,166 foot high summit, via the Lone Peak Tram. Detailing the story behind the United States’ first National Park, Yellowstone Historic Center is an ideal stop off for anyone visiting the park itself. The museum features exhibits on the parks inhabitants throughout the years, as well as the vehicles which transported them. Historic Crail Ranch offers a glimpse back at what life was like for Big Sky’s first settlers. The small cabin, originally owned by the Crail family, displays a trove of artefacts and photographs, detailing the region’s rich history, all the way back to the Native Americans.

Where to stay

A hotel in Big Sky keeps you mere minutes away from some of the best skiing in America. The area's 2 main villages make excellent basecamps, providing a wealth of modern comforts and convenience. Mountain Village is the skier’s favorite, positioned closest to the slopes, whilst Meadow Village is set beside the Big Sky Golf Course and is home to Town Center - Big Sky’s commercial and cultural epicenter. Wherever you stay however, getting about is easily done via the Skyline Bus, which is free to ride. For those primarily visiting Yellowstone National Park, the rustic tourist town of West Yellowstone puts you a convenient mile away from its western gateway.

How to get to Big Sky

Less than 50 minutes’ drive away from Big Sky, Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is the gateway of choice for most visitors. With year-round flights to U.S destinations including Salt Lake City International and Minneapolis-Saint Paul International, seasonal flights offer even more options. Once you’ve landed getting to Big Sky can be done via taxi, private shuttle, or scheduled bus. Karst Stage operates a year round shuttle between the airport and Big Sky, though reservations must be made first. Those driving in will find the resort on Highway 191, after a particularly scenic drive through the Gallatin Canyon.
