Big Sky
Big Sky, Big Love - Ida Gearhart . Date of travel: Feb 2009
Big Sky mountain is simply amazing. The mountain is huge and offers a bit of everything for everybody and had great snow. I stayed only for a few days but would love to get back pronto. The area is resorty but is missing the glitz of normal ski resorts. I stayed in Boseman which was a bit too far away from the mountain but a real taste of Montana life that is missing in Big Sky's village. At the mountain people tend to hang out at Chett's Bar which has a low key local feel to it and often has some great live music. The lift tickets were a bit overpriced but the accommodation was reasonable. The best part of the mountain is how it mixes resort style features like fast chairs and large hotels, with an honest rustic feel. Watch out for bears!!!
