Kcoleman, your timing is good. This winter has been a pretty puny one in terms of total snow fall. It stated snowing here on Sat 3/12 and has only paused for a few hours. I work for Moonlight Basin and we have picked up 60+ inches since the 12th. Today was my first day off since the 12th and I am so exhaused from all the great skiing I had to force myself to take a full day away and pick up on my life, (groceries, laundry etc).
The coverage you will find at Big Sky and the surrounding areas is very very good right now and you are going to have a great trip. When skiing here, bring or rent some mid-fat skis. All the new snow will make it well worth the $$$.
As it is late march, aspect is going to be a big deal in terms of finding good snow. When the sun comes out, the snow gets heavy in a hurry. Stick to more northerly aspects.
Don't forget your goggles and some ibuprophen, your face will hurt from smiling so much.
Please write a Trip Report when you return.
