Visitor Reviews of Big Sky

r.e.f. from Australia writes:

Will be returning to Big Sky for the 8th time and tend to spend about a month at a time skiing all level of trails both on and off piste. Can only say don't go there as it's absolutely awful and that is why we keep returning, if you get my drift.
