It’s Not Just the Length of the Ski Season, It’s the Diversity

Dry, light powder. Couloirs. Trees. Miles of green runs. Regional snowfalls often exceeding 400 inches, annually. Short or non-existent lift lines. Breath-taking steeps, confidence-inspiring glades and impeccably groomed trails. There aren’t many locales where you can ski or snowboard on such a wide variety of terrain. Or for as long. The ski season in Montana’s Yellowstone Country typically ranges from November through April and is highlighted by some of the country’s finest powder, sunniest skies and most diverse terrain options found in the entire Rocky Mountain chain. America’s Winter Playground is home to four of Montana’s five biggest ski areas, including Big Sky Resort and Moonlight Basin—individual resorts that pack a wallop of a downhill punch—but which can be combined under one lift ticket to give you the “Biggest Skiing in America,” the big-mountain-skiing-at-small-town-prices of Bozeman’s community mountain, Bridger Bowl, and the western flair and hospitality of Red Lodge Mountain. All four ski areas are graced by friendly, down-to-earth locals and some of the deepest, lightest powder you've ever floated through. After all, every run should be different and, at four unique Yellowstone Country resorts, they are. Take advantage of equipment rentals, including high-end gear, group lessons, individual instruction and hosted ski tours at all four areas to make your skiing adventures even more dynamic. Additionally, the communities of Big Sky, Bozeman and Red Lodge offer world-class lodging and amenities, a variety of après ski options, alternatives to a day on the slopes and numerous dining and entertainment opportunities. The airport in Bozeman provides seasonal direct flights to many U.S. cities, including Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Phoenix, Salt Lake, San Francisco and Seattle, to name a few. And last, but certainly not least, family fun—in the form of ski schools, terrain parks and on- and off-slope activities—are always front and center in Montana’s Yellowstone Country, truly making it America’s Winter Playground.
