  • One of the best all round ski resorts I’ve ever been to. Great snow, fantastic lift facilities, very friendly staff. Huge terrain and long runs. Looks better than the brochures !  more »

  • We keep returning to BS every 2 years for week vacations usually around Christmas or New year. This is where 5 stars comes. While this place is spectacular about snow I really want to focus my opinion on other items Seems every year there is less to do at Resort for adults and kids after skiing. This year we discover that little coffee shop located in lobby is gone!! And not replaced with anything similar. Few years ago there was outside little shop with food set up in central courtyard .. gone again As far as I remember it was always busy at lunch times and offered international foods items Also seems like there is very limited or less functions for kids to have fun after outside activities. It’s a joke to set up one event for kids ages from 4-16 ( like there is one now ) Whoever is in charge of entertainment events is definitely blind. Maybe he or she should pay a visit to Other resorts where they have great kids/ teenagers programs. For after hrs - Big Sky resorts gets zero stars Bonus stars ( I am being cynical) - in cinema they removed all custom chairs and temporary put restaurant chairs. And all this magically happen right at hottest season of the year!! Why they did not swap them overnight with ones being custom made - great planning BS!! In room we had slight problem with toilet - after 30 min trying to call front desk and housekeeping I went down to verbally report it - done. Would you imagine it took them 6 hrs to send someone to fix it!!!
  • Visited for a Sumner conference. Enjoyed the grounds, scenery. A lot to do if you want to be busy. If not, relax by the pool, lay in the hammock, sit and read. Several restaurants on site. Wonderful deli in the small grocery. Shopping available as well. Rooms were standard. Well kept. Nice balcony for view. Staff was friendly and attentive. Conference rooms were all well equipped. Will definitely return
  • Went to the Big Sky Dinner Yurt and it was fantastic. Food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Offered seconds which was nice. Out of hot chocolate was my only complaint. Offered and then told they were out. For the price they should have everything available. Other than that minor flaw it was a great experience!
  • Spent 5 days there between Christmas and New Year. Out of 5 five days, none of them was the resort fully open. The electronic lift status do not work, the website is not updated on time, so you don’t know that the lifts are closed until you arrive at the top of the first run. Lack of snow first, but no lack of rocks on the few runs open... My son's new skis are dead. Then lack of maintenance. The main lift at the base was closed for a full half day (more than 1hr waiting time on the remaining two other lifts). Then wind. Nobody can do anything about that, too bad. But when the wind calms down, the lifts don't open??? This is not a cheap place, and for the price they charge, you expect way more. They hide under the “early season conditions”, then give us an early season price! Two days of OK ski out of 5, 2 * out of 5.
  • First time snowboarding out west and I was not disappointed... Huge mountain, great snow, and very friendly staff... Special thanks to Don a resort guide who helped show us around to the Madison area where it was allot less crowded... Simply amazing place with breathtaking views from every slope
