Family Activities

On the mountain or off, we have something for everyone in your family.


Your kids are your number one priority, but sometimes you need to be rewarded too. Enjoy a romantic dinner in the backcountry with The Montana Dinner Yurt, get a relaxing couples massage at one of the resorts' spas, or hit the (more challenging) slopes sans kids.

There's no need to worry about the kiddos - let them play at the Lone Peak Playhouse at Big Sky Resort, make some slope side buddies at Kids Club, or take in a lesson at the Ski School. Plus, evening childcare can be arranged through your lodging provider. You can also contact Big Sky Sitters, LLC. A local babysitting service right in town. To make reservations, call (406) 589-6059.


Big Sky offers a full service daycare program at the Lone Peak Playhouse (LPP), right at the base of Big Sky Resort's slopes. Relax and enjoy the day either on the slopes or at the spa while your child plays with other children in a safe and fun environment. LPP is a center that operates in conjunction with Big Sky Resort and the Snowsports School. LPP is conveniently located in the Snowcrest Building, across the hall from the Snowsports School. Reservations Recommended: (406) 993-2220.

Big Sky Community Park

Enjoy a 44-acre park in the heart of Big Sky’s Meadow Village that serves as a gathering spot for outdoor fun. The park features sport fields, basketball, tennis courts, frisbee golf, and access to biking and walking trails in the summer and cross-country ski trails in the winter.
