The name gives it away but the Big Sky resort is really, really BIG. The terrain on which you can ski is the largest in the state – 3,832 acres. The vertical drop is 4,366 feet, one of the biggest in the country and North America. Some call the resort “the biggest place you’ve never skied.” It’s fairly remote and quiet. Big Sky has historically been a favorite location for intermediate skiers, but the resort has added steeps, chutes and cliffs, making it popular with more-experienced skiers as well.
