BEST FOR... EX­PLOR­ERS BIG SKY

Men's Health (UK) - - Style -

Echo­ing the state’s nick­name, Big Sky Coun­try, this Mon­tana re­sort’s 5,800 ski­able acres of­fer plenty to ex­plore – most of it pre­cip­i­tous and pow­dery. We sug­gest vis­it­ing Big Sky Re­sort as the first of a two­cen­tre road trip, then head­ing south to Jack­son Hole in Wy­oming. This Wild West town is worth a cow­poke around, but the tough ter­rain above it is the real dis­cov­ery. The trails are largely black-di­a­mond steep, in­clud­ing Cor­bet’s Couloir, with its 10-20ft drop – giv­ing you enough air time to scream sev­eral four-let­ter words. For griz­zly-man types, the vol­canic Yel­low­stone Na­tional Park is nearby: home to top gey­sers such as Old Faith­ful, as well as bi­son, wolves, elks and ea­gles bald and golden. GO OFF-PISTE Avoid Yel­low­stone coach tours; a snow­mo­bile will bring you closer to na­ture. But beware: the griz­zlies here will take your pic­nic bas­ket – and you. skisa­fari.com
