Top things to do in Big Sky
Obviously skiing & snowboarding are the most popular activity, but Nordic skiing is also massive in Big Sky. We highly recommend adding a visit (or a few nights) to Yellowstone National Park, which is only an hour away from the ski resort.
Big Sky has all the usual winter activities, such as tubing, dog sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and sleigh rides. The resort also offers ziplining and does have a Solace day spa for those that like to relax when they aren’t on the slopes.
