No wonder why skiers flock to Montana’s Big Sky Resort year after year. The snow is downright plentiful, as the resort sees an average annual snowfall of about 400 inches. And since Big Sky opens on Thanksgiving Day and closes the season mid-April, it’s easy to schedule in world-class skiing when your schedule permits. Last but not least: there’s a staggering 5,850 acres of skiable terrain – 2,300 of which are suitable for beginners and intermediate-level skiers – spread across four mountains.
The issue? How popular the resort is, especially in the peak winter months from December through February (imagine steep hotel rates, long lift lines, and packed restaurants). So here’s a travel tip: March and April are also sublime times to visit. You’ll still enjoy ample snow, along with those coveted bluebird days, and everything else, from accommodations to the slopes, is more affordable and accessible as well. Plus: thanks to Big Sky 2025, an ambitious 10-year capital plan transforming the resort into a top-tier destination that appeals to travelers all year long, it’s even easier to make a case for a visit right now.
