God Damn! I have a new favorite place. The accessibility to intense steep terrain is awesome, gladed terrain is awesome, decent beginner and intermediate terrain. huge area and amazing side and back country all over the place. here's a shot from the moonlight side. My sons venue for competition tomorrow.

Nice, Argo! A friend was there this season...he texted me from there to put Big Sky on my bucket list. Glades + that shot just sealed it.

Good luck to Matthew!!

I'll post more pictures through the weekend. Probably the steepest lift access in the US we have ridden. Trees are beautiful and well kept without all the deadfall knee snapping shit we have in CO. definitely should be a bucket list place for the avid rider

Excellent. Looking forward to seeing more.

Someone from work has a log cabin styled mountain house in MT. Can't recall the town but they're nearest to Bridger as the crow flies (about a 1.5h drive around a mountain though); perhaps they're close to Big Sky...wheels spinning...thank you Argo!

I've got a few days here next season through a powder alliance deal... drove through last summer and have been stoked to check it out since then. Can't wait to plan a trip next season, the resort looks massive

Hey Argo! That's some awesome looking terrain! Big Sky has been on my bucket list pretty much since the beginning as it's actually one of the "sister" resorts to Boyne here in MI. I have it saved as a Fav on my On the Snow app. along with Vail & a few others. (...Guess I just like torturing myself checking on all the epic POW I'm missing!)

I hear a lot of talk and hype about BS from the resort here, mostly about the lack of crowds 'n' such, but your description has it sounding like "Gnar-vana!!" it's definitely on my To Be Ridden list.



-edit-
.... actually I'm packed and about to head out the door for three days of warm, slushy spring shit at Boyne right now. Sort of depressing after those pics n vid! . Wishing your boy the best of luck on the competition!

My mom spent a week there last month. Said it was amazing and she has skied just about everywhere. We are already planning a trip next season. Her friend is also member of the golf club and they get fresh track days, 1 hour before general open time.
