Big Sky's terrain is ranked using the standard ski trail ranking system - Green Circle, Blue Square, Black Diamond, Double Black Diamond. It's important to note that every mountain's scale is relative to that specific resort. Work your way into the bigger terrain slowly. Even if you ski the hardest runs at other resorts, you might be in over your head at Big Sky.
Before you commit to a line, always know where you are going and get the latest conditions report. Is it forgiving powder, firm and chalky, or the dreaded slide for life?
Whether you head to the Headwaters, A to Z chutes, Lone Mountain, Lone Tree, Challenger Zone, or one of the hidden gems that only ski patrol knows about, you're bound to find turns that get the adrenaline pumping.
Be safe and have fun!
