BIG POWDER AND BIG SKIES MEET IN MONTANA.
Beyond the park in Montana’s Yellowstone Country, three of the state’s four largest ski areas offer up some of the most sublime downhill and backcountry skiing in North America. 400 inches of annual snowfall blankets boundless mixed terrain, and Montana’s basecamp communities extend some of the friendliest hospitality around.
BIG SKY, MONTANA
Come experience Big Sky, home to the Biggest Skiing in America® at Big Sky Resort, which offers more than 5,800 acres of skiable terrain and 4,350 vertical feet, accommodating those who want to slide around on the novice slopes or venture up and ski the off-piste terrain of Lone Peak. As a winter outdoor recreationist’s playground, you can glide through 85 km of world-renowned Nordic trails, drive your own dog-sled team, snowshoe through miles of untouched forest trails and enjoy aprés ski after a long day of play under the Big Sky.
There’s a reason people say, “Only in Bozeman.” Let’s start with the snow. Locals call it “Cold Smoke,” and it’s the light, dry powder that Bridger Bowl is known for. Just 20 minutes from Bozeman, Montana, the skiing at Bridger is some of the most varied and exciting terrain in the Rockies. With 2,000 acres spanning 2,600 vertical feet, this unspoiled mountain serves everyone from first-timers to adrenaline-seeking experts.
WEST YELLOWSTONE, MONTANA
The Heart of Yellowstone, and more. West Yellowstone is the closest year-round entrance to Old Faithful. Ski over 50 km of groomed trails or take a day tour into Yellowstone National Park via a snowmobile or heated snowcoach. Small-town charm and hospitality invite you to spend the night, dine in unique and diverse eateries and venture out into the clean mountain air.
