Big Sky

Montana's leading holiday destination of Big Sky is a fantastic year round resort offering the best skiing to be had in the state. Situated between Bozeman and West Yellowstone, Big Sky sits among some of the most gorgeous scenery in the United States and the ever increasing number of tourists to the resort is testament to this. With great powder and long runs on three different mountains, Big Sky is an outdoor entusiast's paradise and nothing beats a day out on the slopes than relaxing in a hot tub before enjoying the reosrt's après-ski.

Information & Facts

During the summer months holidaymakers can enjoy golf, tennis, hiking, mountain biking and whitewater rafting. And if all this activity is too much, there are plenty of spas to relax in.

English is the most common language but Spanish is often spoken in south-western states.

The US Dollar (USD) is the unit of currency and is divided into 100 cents. Only major banks exchange foreign currency. ATMs are widespread and credit cards and travellers cheques are widely accepted. Travellers cheques should be taken in US Dollars to avoid hassles. Banking hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm.


Big Sky is a family-friendly resort and even though there is a variety of nightlife available those looking for a more raucous ski holiday should look elsewhere.

Some of these venues include Black Bear Bar and Grill, Bugaboo Café and the Alpine Lounge. There are fireworks every Saturday evening from Christmas until close.
