Big Sky


Big Sky Montana is undeniably enormous! The skiable terrain at Big Sky Ski Resort ranks among the largest in North America, with an impressive vertical drop that's also one of the biggest on the continent. While Big Sky is undoubtedly an excellent ski resort with its massive size, it sometimes makes baseless claims about being the biggest and the best. For instance, it proudly calls itself the "Biggest Skiing in America," despite not being the largest resort. Additionally, they claim to have the "Best Lift in the World," although some European resorts might contest that. Furthermore, they boast of having the most consistent snow in the North American Rockies, even though the actual average snowfall for the past decade falls far below their cited average. This is just one example of their claims. Big Sky is undeniably the most popular ski resort in Montana, and compared to other ski areas in the state, it boasts well-developed infrastructure and amenities. However, it still falls short of some of the true "world-class" resorts found elsewhere.
