About Big Sky
Welcome to Big Sky!
We’re excited you’ve chosen our wonderful mountain home as your next vacation destination! You’ll soon discover Big Sky is full of awe-inspiring beauty in every direction and adventure around every corner. Life in the mountains can be a little daunting for the unfamiliar, so we hope to welcome you with this website and give you some insights on how to have the best and safest trip!
Our community is generally referred to by our three regions for some quick orientation. We mention these areas throughout the site as we connect you to our recreation, lodging, dining, and shopping.
The Canyon is the first region you’ll encounter. Whether arriving from Bozeman or West Yellowstone, you’ll have to drive Highway 191 along the Gallatin River. This is your Big Sky access point for world-class fishing, white water rafting, horseback riding, and hiking trails that will take you to scenic vistas. Cell phone service is limited here, so enjoy unplugging and connecting to the glorious outdoors.
The Meadow is the heart of our community. Here you’ll find our two separate walkable shopping districts, Town Center and Meadow Village. It’s where we have concerts and golfing in the summer and ice skating and Nordic skiing in the winter. You can also access amenities like the hospital and three grocery stores
The Mountain is where you can find the exciting thrills at Big Sky Resort or high-end luxury at the Montage. In the winter, the Resort is home to 5,850 skiable acres and the most technologically advanced lift network in North America - from heated seats and weatherproof bubbles to one of the fastest chairlifts in North America. In the summer, you can mountain bike on over 50 miles of life-served trails.
