We are headed to Big Sky next weekend for the week. We haven't been there in over 10 years - looking for some input on trip logistics and such. Two adults, two teens, we generally ski together blues and blacks, mid-morning - til last lift.
We are driving, thinking of staying in Bozeman on the way in and checking out Bridger - our son wants to try snowboarding, thinking a lesson there will give him a taste of that.
At Big Sky, we are going to stay at Bucks - recommendations for driving or shuttling to lifts? Start at Mountain Village (Big Sky) or does it work better to go to Moonlight Basin?
We know onsite is more convenient, but also pricier - deals w/ lift tixs at Bucks seem good and the option to take a non-skiing day might allow for other activities - recommendations welcome - the kids are not as avid skiers as the parents. We are thinking of maybe snow mobiling, nordic skiing, snow shoeing excursions, a sleigh ride (320 vs lone mountain recommendations)? Any other suggestions - we're not much for shopping so hanging out in the village for a day is not likely to entertain us.
Kids need rental equipment - since we're driving we have lots of options - any recommendations?
Any input is welcome - have at it!
Thanks in advance!
