In addition to Bridger Bowl opening on Friday, Big Sky Resort will open for the season on Thanksgiving Day, November 22.

According to Big Sky Resort, the mountain has received over six feet of snow and is ready for a stellar opening on Thursday.

You no longer need to freeze your butt off on old-school chairlifts to access the “biggest skiing in America.”

Big Sky now boasts the most technologically advanced chairlift network in North America. A new eight-seat, high-speed lift, the biggest and most high-tech of its kind, can get 3,200 skiers up the mountain per hour, and the high-speed quad cuts in half the travel time to super-steep Shedhorn peak.

For the first time, the resort is offering beginner and intermediate skiers a First Tracks program, with the added perk of breakfast at Everett’s 8800.

Season Pass Holders: From 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., you can pick up your passes in the Mountain Services Office.
