Be prepared for great surprises this season at Big Sky Resort, with new lift upgrades and a few trail updates.  Also, we’ve enjoyed accolades from independent sources touting why Big Sky is definitely a desirable ski destination (things we know and love, but great to hear from others as well, yes?)

At Stay Montana, we have a great selection of accommodations to fit your family, so why not bundle up and head to Big Sky this holiday season?  Make your plans, book your reservations, and start packing now!

And speaking of packing….If you are an outdoor enthusiast, you’ve no doubt heard this saying – there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear – so fill those stockings with lift tickets, and tell Santa where you’d like him to shop.  Here are some of our favorite gear stores to update your snow sports equipment that you can pick up while you’re here:

Grizzly Outfitters
Lone Mountain Sports
Gallatin Alpine Sports
Crazy Mountain Outdoor
Bob Wards
Girls Outdoors
REI Bozeman
Chalet Sports
World Boards
PHD Skis
Big Sky Mountain Sports

We hope you are as excited as we are for the kick-off of another wonderful winter season, and we hope to see you soon!
