18 miles north of Yellowstone National Park (but 47 miles by road to the West Entrance), Big Sky Resort offers world-class skiing and snowboarding on 3 interconnected mountains, and usually there's twice as many acres as skiers. This is a place where you can have it all in terms of winter and summer sports. Winter offers skiing, boarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dog-sledding, horseback riding and sleigh rides. Summer brings whitewater rafting, golfing, fly fishing, mountain biking, horseback riding, disc golf and more. And when you're done for the day, treat yourself to a luxurious relaxing and rejuvenating treatment at the Solace Spa at Big Sky. This is an area where you'll find multiple vacation condos, townhomes, resort suites and luxury mountain home rentals available all year round.

The resort offers 3 terrain parks: 1 for beginners, 1 for intermediates and 1 for folks who prefer to 'board with their feet above their heads. The 3 mountains offer 150 named runs, and more than 85 miles of groomed tracks.

Big Sky Resort is 9 miles west of US Highway 191. The turnoff from US Highway 191 is 45 miles south of Bozeman and 47 miles north of West Yellowstone.
