Best Places In Montana To Visit Big Sky ski Resort

Perched in the northernmost fringes of the US, Montana is an incredible state to explore. It’s the kind of state that’s got a little something for every traveller, especially if you love the great outdoors. Not only that, there are so many of the best places to see in Montana that are perched all over the state.

This makes it one of the best US states to visit on a road trip, especially if you’re already in the wider northerly area of the US. After all, you can include a trip to Montana as part of a visit to Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming and even following the Rockies towards Alberta in Canada. 

Though, don’t think you need to be a pro skier or hiker to enjoy Montana. There’s also a heap of smaller cities that are well worth a visit whilst you’re driving around the state. 

Take a look, below, at the best places to see in Montana when you visit. After all, you don’t want to travel all that way and miss some of the top places. Have fun! 

1.) Big Sky Resort

Big Sky is one of the most famous and largest winter resorts in all the United States. Not just that, it’s situated within the southwesterly fringes of Montana and around 50 miles from Yellowstone International Airport (Bozeman).

With almost 6,000 acres of skiable terrain and the most beautiful pistes, it’s the kind of place that’s well worth visiting if you’re an avid skier. Though, don’t fret if you’re not a pro! There are a range of slopes at Big Sky that are suited to all abilities. Honestly, it’s huge and you can easily spend 2-3 days and not even come close to ‘completing’ it. 

Now, daily lift passes (that you can grab here) can be a little on the pricier side, so make sure to plan your days well to maximise your time on the slopes before booking any tickets. 

Also, don’t forget that Big Sky is not just a resort for winter activities. In the warmer summer months, you can head out on activities like horseback riding, swimming, and zip-lining which are so much fun.
