The secret of Big Sky, Montana is out. The town is home to some of the most expansive and extreme terrain in the country at Big Sky Resort, along with a private ski club home to the rich and famous at The Yellowstone Club. With a new ski season fast approaching, the town is seeing monumental changes in the next couple of months. Visit Bozeman put together a list of some of the biggest improvements coming to the rising ski town this winter. Big Sky Resort: Two big changes will greet skiers and riders at Montanas largest ski resort. The Swift Current Six is a high-speed six-pack heated bubble lift at the Mountain Village base area and is located adjacent to the relatively new Ramcharger Eight. The lift replaces the Swift Current Four, and services easy, intermediate, and advanced terrain.
With lines becoming an issue over at Big Sky’s tram, the resort is aiming to bring the average wait time back to around thirty minutes. Starting this season, only Gold and Double Black Pass holders have direct access to the tram. Any other pass holders, including Ikon shredders, will have to purchase Tram Access Packs. They will range from $20-80 per day, demanding on the demand. You can purchase them here, although it should be noted that this is extremely challenging and potentially life-threatening terrain.
Big Sky has also released its trail map for this upcoming season, which is always a stunning sight based on the scope of the resort. Montage Big Sky: When it opens at the end of this year, this new one hundred and thirty-nine room and suite hotel will instantly become one of the best slopeside hotels in the country. The amenities of the Montage will include a bowling alley, multiple restaurants, multiple indoor and outdoor pools, a spa, snow tubing, ice skating, a private eighteen-hole golf course, and more. Base-The Big Sky Community Center: The town of Big Sky is building a massive community center, which will officially open in early 2022. Some of the amenities will include an ice rink during the winter, a bouldering wall with twenty routes, a fitness center, a gymnasium with basketball hoops, offices for local non-profit organizations, meeting rooms, arts, and cultural center, music pavilion, environmental discovery center, and more.
