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.

Located a scenic hour-long drive through the Gallatin National Forest south of Bozeman, Big Sky has never been easier to access. With over 30 nonstop flights, Big Sky is the best-served mountain destination in the country. Extend your trip and explore all that the area has to offer, including Yellowstone National Park.


300 degrees of skiing off 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.


Big Sky is available on the IKON pass (max 7 days) or IKON Base Pass/IKON Base Plus pass (max 5 days). All IKON Pass holders will need to make a reservation to use their days at Big Sky. Reservations start on August 1st, 2023, please make sure to make them as soon as possible for the days you plan on skiing.
