Big Sky Montana

Anyone going to be hanging around Big Sky 2/8-15? Heading out Friday morning for a wk.

Anyone in the Albany NY area want to go? There may be an open slot left. ~ $1500 for the trip.

Our school is going up there for a trip this weekend, the 9th. I actually get school credit for going snowboarding for the weekend. Gotta love big skiing colleges.

Nice. We get in late Friday night. If you see a bright colored pin that says out of control on it, that's one of us. There's ~ 30 of us heading out.

Cool bro. We are getting in Friday night as well and heading back Sunday. I will be cruising around with a Green plad jacket on riding my new X8.

Be prepared to spend lots of cash at Big Sky. Everything there is expensive. While Big Sky is a favorite in Montana among the super rich (and those who attend college and take fun electives such as "Snowboarding for credit"), there are other gems out there that are worth checking out and are far less expensive than Big Sky:

1) Lost Trail (on the Idaho/Montana line on US 93)
2) Discovery (the locals sometimes affectionately refer to it as "Disco")
3) Showdown (don't let the wild west redneck name scare ya)
4) Snowbowl (I don't care for the granola, hippie scene but it's a neat place)
5) Lookout Pass (lots of snow)
6) Teton Pass (very small ski area but filled with Montana charm)

The above list is not all inclusive, of course.

Personally, LT, Disco, and TP are my favorites.

Tis definately expensive. I have been up there before. I am just going for the credit. You can't beat getting college credit for doing something you would probably do anyway on the weekend . I usually board up at Red Lodge and Bridger.

I wish I had the chance to take electives like the ones that are offered now. Ah well. Just for laughs, I checked out lift tickets at Aspen. Aspen charges $87 a day for a full lift pass while Big Sky is $75. Oh, and if you want to park close to the complex, plan on forking over another $20 a day. Don't get me wrong, Big Sky is fun and it was a blast visiting there, however, it's all about the money at that resort.

I wonder how the management would feel if I parked an old pickup truck and a travel trailer and just camped out on their parking lot?

Yeah for sure. I usually check out Moonlight a lot more often. It is only a little cheaper then its neighbor, but has a lot nicer park and prety compareable runs.

This trip is about the same as what I paid to go to Whisler for a wk in 05. Looking foward to it.

Papawood, maybe I'll see you out there. I'll be the only one in Blue/Black
