First time I was in Big Sky was in 2005. I was participating in a conference and during the days there was a 4 hour break in the flood of papers, giving the people time for some recreation and then continuing with the conference until very late.
Since then I have returned a couple of time. The conference is great and so is the skiing.
Depending on weather and sun, there are a couple of areas to choose between. A typical start of the day is to take the Ramcharger lift and take some warm up runs in Ambush or Hangman´s. That are wide runs that are quite easy also for less experienced skiers. A little longer and tougher are Bighorn and Elk Park Ridge that ends at the Thunder Wolf lift.
If you ski between those you get mogules all the way! Great exercise
There are also some green tracks ending at the Southern Comfort lift.
Ponderosa is a slow dream, just floating down while you probably have to use your poles if you chose the rightmost track Deep South.
After a while it is time to relocate.
With the swift current from the mountain village it is not so far up to the bowl. A great view but if you hate mogules - forget it.
In the upper ski area I recommend to take the Lone Peak Tram up to the peak. Walk up to the top at 11.166 ft (3403 meter) and have a look at the view. There are many double black slopes down but I prefer to play safe so I usually take the way down on the back side, through Liberty Bowl.
It is nice to take a soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi afterwards.
- Pros:No lines, very good capacity
- Cons:Very remote, not the best communications. No bars in the slopes.
I first set foot at Huntley lodge in 2005. Since then I have stayed there 3 times and I plan to go again next... more travel advice
