Surrounded by the beauty of the Greater Yellowstone Region, wide-open spaces meet dramatic peaks and create transformative mountain experiences. Northern Rocky Mountain snow falls consistently on 5,850 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from groomers ready for your widest turns to bucket list descents that challenge even the best athletes. Whether you're looking to push the limits on rugged mountain adventures or escape from the bustle of high-paced life, you'll find reward in an escape to Big Sky no matter the season.

The Biggest Skiing in America awaits you.  300 degrees of skiing off of Lone Peak, surrounded by three other mountains, spans 5,850 acres of terrain to explore. If you're just starting out on the snow, 2,300 of those acres are beginner and intermediate terrain that's perfect for learning and improving your technique. For the experts, Big Sky provides lift-served access to some of the most aggressive in-bounds terrain in the world. 

Navigate the mountain via the most technologically advanced lift network in North America—from Ramcharger 8's heated seats and weatherproof bubbles to Swift Current 6's unprecedented speed as the fastest chairlift in North America. With four bubble chairlifts in total, warm-up breaks and cross-mountain traverses don't have to interrupt your day.

Explore the growing hub of adventurism in Big Sky's Mountain Village. With slopeside lodging like the newly remodeled Huntley Lodge and Summit Hotel, shopping, and dining, Mountain Village is the heart of it all.

Huntley Lodge

Located in the middle Big Sky Mountain Village, the landmark property of our mountain retreat. All rooms have two queen beds with a mini refrigerator, Keurig Coffee maker, and an Honor bar.  The Huntley is a ski in/out with the lift only a short walk from the back door.  Also included is a Daily Breakfast Buffet and a Group Welcome Gift.
