On the heels of the Big Sky 19-20 Thread - Who's coming out to the biggest skiing in America this year ?
BIG SKY - Home of the Ram Charger 8 pack along with 37 other lifts and 5800+ acres !
We will be Skiing most days and still looking for new stashes beyond the 300 named runs, perhaps you know...
I am so glad I found this site.
I took up skiing a few years back, and I have been averaging 2 ski trips a season. I have done I70, Aspen twice, Whistler, Steamboat, and Vail. It has been a blast.
I have invested quite a bit in private lessons, but I don’t get to spend enough time on the snow...
Is it helpful to have a car in Big Sky (we are staying within walking distance to the mountain, so don't need it for that). If not, any services you recommend for transportation from the airport in Bozeman to Big Sky? Thanks.
In a year when we feel like we're hearing about an overwhelming amount of avalanche victims, this area in Montana is reporting a 3rd consecutive year with zero avalanche fatalities after increasing education efforts.

Up high, at least. It came in over several days, made...
They're firing it up tomorrow (12/14), so they can work out all the kinks in plenty of time before the Pugski Gathering!

Asking for a friend. ;)
Good Morning: I will be in Whitefish Jan 15th to 19th with a non skier. I am a confident intermediate who ventures into the trees and skis most black diamonds cautiously. Was hoping someone could show me the mountain and ski for a day or two. Post ski beers on me. To the moderators, I...
So, I am thinking about a road-trip through Montana, Idaho, and Washington State.....but not necessarily limited to those states.
Looking for Cheap, Deep, and Steep, so I will probably avoid the bigger resorts.
Alpental, Baker, and Bridger look interesting. So does Apex in BC.
I know it is only Sept. BUT does anyone have any information on Lookouts expansion, anything new at Silver (head they've done some Glade work) anyone know where on the Mt. Anything new at Schweitzer ? Anyone going to Gathering at Big Sky?
This THIS is what I've been wanting a long time!
Daily Inter Lake: Whitefish Mountain Resort proposes big changes for Hellroaring Basin.
Interestingly, I filled out a resort...
We have been skiing at Big Sky in Montana for several years now. Recently did a write up on the resort:
hope you enjoy and please let me know thoughts.
Greetings all. I'll be heading to Whitefish MT in early January. I've never been before and am wondering about the ski school. I think it would be a great early(ish) season opportunity to get some bump instruction. Any recommendations?
Thanx in advance. Cheers.
