Visitor Reviews of Big Sky

RB from United States writes:

Big Sky is truly a destination resort worth visiting. The mountain is huge and terrain is quite varied. Add on Moonlight Basin (which can be skied on one lift ticket) and you have one of the biggest and most diverse areas in the country. On-mountain accommodations are really quite good, particularly the Powder Ridge cabins, which offer luxury at a moderate price. Snowfall isn't quite as great here as Jackson Hole (a few dozen miles to the south), but it's still excellent. Plus, the mountain holds its snow very well due to the high altitude, cold temps, and north/east orientation. I have only one gripe with Big Sky: on mountain dining is far too limited. Hopefully, that will change with additional development.
