While many across the country are starting to enjoy the unfolding of spring in April, here in Big Sky, we are still hitting the slopes, and there is nothing quite like it. Secret powder stashes, warm, smooth turns, and sunny cocktail hours make April a beautiful time to be in Big Sky. 

This year, Big Sky Resort will be open through April 28th, making it the longest ski season in their history. Let’s dive into the top 5 reasons why we think April is one of the best times for you to ski in Big Sky! 

  • Bluebird Days – Remember to slather on the sunscreen! April in Big Sky is known for sunny, bluebird days, making it the perfect time to work on your goggle tan and take in the views. 

  • Spring Corn – Cold nights with warm days are the perfect ingredients to produce those soft and tasty spring corn turns we all love, especially on the south-facing trails. 

  • The Vibes – With the busy part of the ski season over, residents come out to play with fun and festive ski outfits and lighthearted energy. Big Sky Resort begins its Spring Series Après, including Après-ski every Friday on the mountain at Everett’s 8800, and every Friday-Sunday in the Mountain Village Plaza from March 29 to April 13. 

  • Spring Pow – Historically, April brings some significant accumulation to Big Sky, keeping north-facing trails fresh throughout the month. 

  • Savings – How can you beat spring skiing with affordable lift tickets and lodging prices? Booking in advance online for April gives you some of the cheapest ticket prices of the season. Visit Big Sky Resort to check them out. 

If you’re looking for sunny days, fun vibes, and affordability, don't miss out on the opportunity to extend your ski season and create more memories on the mountain this April in Big Sky.
