Discover Big Sky

Visitors to Big Sky Resort typically fly into Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, which is served by most major carriers, with an hour’s scenic drive South along Highway 191.

The resort was originally opened in 1973 by Montana native Chet Huntley, and opened in December of that year. Big Sky initially had 3 lifts- two chairs and a gondola. Following Huntley’s death in 1974, the resort was purchased by Boyne Resorts in 1976. In the years that followed Big Sky Resort grew impressively, more than tripling its skiable terrain creating a Big Sky luxury resort. In 2000, Boyne Resorts implemented a grand, $400 million 10-year improvement program, including new hotels at Big Sky Resort and updates to the main hub of Mountain Village. As the mountain’s central base, Mountain Village is home to a number of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as an array of lodging options.

As a genuine, all-year resort, Big Sky is the ideal destination in both winter and summer. In addition to its varied and unique ski terrain, guests can enjoy a number of winter activities at Big Sky, including snow shoe tours, Nordic skiing, dog sledding, snowmobile tours, and ziplining.

There are also plenty of Big Sky resort summer activities for guests of all ages, these include golf, hiking, white water rafting, wildlife tours, and the world-famous Yellowstone National Park.
