Big Sky, with a very dramatic Matterhorn-shaped peak stopping out at 11,166
feet, is for serious skiers from the summit, but it has premium cruisers
near the base. The intermediate groomers are so exhilarating that those who
tire out on the expert terrain have plenty to smile about as they play on
the lower trails with friends and family.
We can help you experience this euphoria by assisting you in booking
everything from lodging, transportation, lift tickets, and rentals. We can
make this trip as close to hassle free as possible, and it all can be done
on one website.
Big Sky's terrain is on the south and east sides of Lone Peak, north of
Lone Peak is Moonlight Basin. The relationship between the ski areas was
chilly for two seasons, but in June 2005 they reached an agreement to offer
a a combined pass. Big Sky's higher altitude and more northerly latitude
result in better snow preservation, while Moonlight Basin's northerly exposure
results in mostly packed powder conditions.
The two resorts share the same mountain - Lone Peak, which is nearly an hour
from Bozeman. At one time, the resorts shared several trails and a lift. But
previously, it was necessary to purchase a ticket or season pass from each if
you wanted to ski them both.

Ski Montana's New Frontier!
Moonlight Basin is a very special place. Unique in beauty. Extraordinary in
service. Unmatched in friendliness. It's the New West, and you're invited to
become a part of it.
Located on the north side of Lone Mountain, in Big Sky, Montana, Moonlight
Basin is one of the newest ski resorts in the U.S. Although skiers are a new
addition to Moonlight, homeowners and guests have come to Moonlight Basin for
nearly a decade, from all over the world - to enjoy the extraordinary
Moonlight Basin lifestyle, and enjoy the skiing at neighboring Big Sky Resort.
Now, Moonlight Basin proudly steps forward as America's newest, most exciting
ski resort destination. You'll find extraordinary snow, superb lift access,
amazing new ski terrain - and service that makes you feel as welcome as you do
in your own home.
The resort sits at the edge of a 39-mile tract containing some of Montana's
most beautiful scenery. Owned by a succession of railroad companies and used
primarily for logging until 1992, this amazing place is experiencing an
award-winning forest recovery-with a goal of placing the majority of the
property in conservation easements and other protections.
Moonlight Basin. The good life starts the moment you arrive.
