Big Sky Ski Resort
“You’ll enjoy our exceptional lodging accommodations, fine dining and meeting facilities. In addition to the extensive recreation opportunities we’re known for our breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife and gracious hospitality.”
Discovery Ski Area
“Discovery has three faces. The front face is the perfect blend of gently sloping runs and more advanced groomed cruisers. Off the Granite Chair, things step up a notch with steeper groomed runs and mogul skiing. And the backside? Well, imagine the Chugach without the costly helicopter ride. Point is, we have great terrain and lots of it. No matter what kind of mountain you like, you just discovered it.”
“The lake is home to large populations of trophy sized rainbow and brook trout as well as large numbers of kokanee salmon. This blue ribbon fishery, along with some of the best ice fishing in the state, is rated Montana’s most prolific lake with more fish caught per person than any other lake in Montana.”
