Adventure in the Northern Rockies

Montana is known as Big Sky Country, and nowhere is that name more fitting than in the town of Big Sky itself. The air is fresh, the pace of life is slower, and big blue skies dominate the scenery—rivaled only by the rocky peaks of the Gallatin Range. Home to nine national forests, Big Sky is a beacon for outdoor recreation, particularly hiking, fishing, and whitewater rafting. It’s just an hour’s drive from the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park, renowned for its hot springs and abundant wildlife. Visit Big Sky in the colder months to zoom down the slopes of Big Sky Resort, the second-largest ski resort in the U.S. with 6,000 acres of skiable terrain.

Travel Tips


  • Forecasting Your Big Sky Vacation

    Big Sky enjoys an average of around 400 inches of snow each year, with January tending to be the snowiest month. Springtime sees snow storms mixed in with warm, sunny days and many local businesses close during this season. You can expect the resort to be thriving in again in summer, when temperatures are as ideal as they come. Big Sky is rarely crowded by standard ski-resort definitions, but you can expect peak crowds from Thanksgiving through April (the general ski season) and again from June through September.
