As many begin to pack away their winter gear for the season, there’s a bunch of wise (and often wild!) powder hounds that know the right way to end the ski season – spring skiing at one of the “Best Ski Resorts in the West” – Big Sky Resort, MT. Big Sky Resort stays open until 24 April 2022 (estimated) so there’s still time to book a last minute ski vacation to Big Sky.
What to Expect on a Spring Ski Vacation in Big Sky
Big Sky Resort’s Spring Skiing Terrain
Big Sky Resort is one of the “Top-Ranked Ski Resorts in the West” and is massive! Big Sky Resort boasts 5,850 skiable acres with a summit elevation of 11,000 feet, 4,350 of vertical drop, 7 awesome terrain parks, a deep spring snowpack, and north & south facing slopes for prime spring skiing – all ages, all levels & all abilities.
Your time on the slopes is maximized at Big Sky Resort with some of the most modern and scenic chairlifts in the US. The iconic Lone Peak Tram offers views of the Montana Peaks as far as the eye can see, and the newly installed Swift Current 6 (the fastest six-person chairlift in North America) & Ramcharger 8 (North America’s first 8-seat chairlift) can move 6,600 skiers from the base area up the mountain - per hour.
Andesite Mountain is at a lower elevation with long, wide-open groomers, spaced out tree runs, and easy greens from the summit at Everett’s to the Mountain Village base area. If you’ve got the skill – Lone Peak delivers endless extreme adventures in the spring months or hit the sunny north-facing slopes of Moonlight Mountain. From fresh powder to freshly packed spring corn with panoramic peaks at every turn, we rate Big Sky Resort the best spring skiing destination in the west!
