Green runs at Big Sky
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I have skied at a dozen resorts in the West. I am more concerned about our traveling companions. Last year we skied at Sun Valley, and I thought the greens were more like blues. As examples, Keystone and Beaver Creek have "normal" greens.
The green runs at Big Sky are "normal" and pretty interesting overall. The less experienced skiers in our group particularly enjoyed the Southern Comfort area. Sun Valley has some of the steepest greens out there and is definitely not in the "normal" range.
Since I work at Keystone, and have coached the EpicSki Academy at Big Sky, I can tell you that the green runs at Big Sky are not any more difficult than at Keystone. There is a pretty good variety at Big Sky, too--more than Keystone, with several distinct areas of the mountain that you will probably like. The crowds at Big Sky are insignificant compared with Keystone. If you enjoyed Keystone, I'll bet you'll like Big Sky!
