First trip to Big Sky starts in one week, tips?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have any suggestions on making the most of my upcoming trip to Big Sky?  I am a level 7/8 skier and will be skiing with a friend that is about the same.  We'll have 2 other lower level skiers with us but we'll likely split up most of the time, except for the occassional blue run.

Someone else just posted a thread on Big Sky, maybe in the Resorts section.  Anyway, there's some good posts in there.  Ski off the tram, have dinner at Bucks T-4, get into the trees off Andesite, etc.  Oh, and come over and spend some time at Moonlight Basin as well.

Thanks, I'll see if I can find the other thread.  I searched prior to posting but must not have seen it.  I will likely be spending 2 days at Big Sky and 1 day at Moonlight Basin.  Can't wait!

Vinn's right on.  Also, be in awe of that beautiful place.  (And spend a day at Bridger Bowl.)

Have your friends ski the cruisers Of Andesite-  you ski the glades between them- meet at lift and repeat!! If your skiing next tuesday or wed. , let me know I can show you some pretty sweet stuff!

I will be skiing on Tues, just not sure if we'll be at Big Sky or Moonlight that day.  Most likely Big Sky though.

Any tips on where to rent skis from?  I usually rent a demo ski while my friends will do a performance package.  I'm looking for a place relatively close to the slopes (doesn't have to be right in the village) with a good selection and competitive pricing.  I saw the official Big Sky ski shop is pretty pricy, was also looking at East Slope Outdoors (selection looks limited but great prices), Grizzly Outfitters, and Lone Mountain Sports.  Any other suggestions?  Rental shops at Moonlight Basin would also be reasonable, although I think we'll spend 2 days at Big Sky and only 1 at Moonlight.

Lone Mountain Sports and the rental shop by the ticket windows at Big Sky are the most convenient places to rent skis.  Both are at the base area of the resort so you can check their selection & prices before making a decision.  I'm not sure about this year but in previous years Lone Mountain had the biggest selection of upper-end demo skis to choice from.
