    Northern Rockies/Alberta Big Sky 2020-2021

    With the original closing date passed, we can look forward to next winter . . . let's hope. Unfortunately, no SwiftCurrent6 progress to talk about, probably reduced construction (if any) to other parts of the resort, and maybe only speculation about whether the season will exist at all. Have...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta First Trip to Big Sky

    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...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Big Sky Transportation

    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.

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Cheap, Deep, and Steep Resorts in Northwest USA

    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. What else...

    Lessons at Whitefish MT (1/19)

    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.
