Childcare

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 Resort's daycare, 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 serivce right in town.

Daycare

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.
