A weekend concert pass is $160, which gets you into all shows. Single show tickets are $35 each. Big Sky slopeside ski and stay packages start from $162 per person, per day, based on double occupancy, in February. A three-night stay is required with lodging in the Huntley Lodge, and it includes two days of skiing/riding and breakfast for two people each day.
The West Yellowstone, Gallatin National Forest area of southern Montana, which includes Big Sky Resort, offers plenty of winter adventures to choose from. It ranks high among western trip choices for skiers/riders from Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas.
Big Sky, which is just 45 minutes from the western entrance to Yellowstone National Park, is a great location with lots of lift and lodging packages, snowmobile tours and transportation to the park and snowcoach tours that take you to Old Faithful, bison viewing and more.
Big Sky is now the largest ski resort in the USA with the recent acquisition of neighboring Moonlight Basin and Spanish Peaks; 5,750 skiable acres and 4,350 feet of vertical drop. At 11,166 feet it's easy to see Lone Peak's appeal to every age and level of skier and boarder. Runs up to six miles long and glades and bowls covered in 400+ inches of annual snowfall.
