DESCRIPTION:

This has been the number one vote getter whenever we have done a survey. The reason we haven't booked it in the past has been price, but this year we got a bid for a week-long trip at the price we had been getting for weekend trips in the past. This was listed as the largest ski resort (at 5,800 acres) in the United States before the merger of Park City/Canyons. More acres than skiers - boasting about two acres per skier as they disburse over the inbounds(!) terrain. Consistently recognized short or non-existent lines. What more can you ask for?


 The following is included in the trip price: 

TRANSPORTATION: 

Oh, and we can’t forget flights - - - - from Chicago to Bozeman on United and van transfers from the airport (with a grocery store stop of course).

United Airlines, Direct non-stop flights to/from Bozeman. Departure 9:05AM - land 11:13AM, with the Airport only 50 miles away you'll be relaxing in your unit or hot tub by 1:30 or go wandering around the area. The real diehards might want to see if they can snag a ticket and get some vertical on the first day. Return flight 12:15PM - lands 4:10PM, you will be able to have a relaxing breakfast maybe pack a lunch for the airport while you do your final packing.

If you have mileage or are coming from somewhere else and wish to book your own air,. We can deduct the cost of the air ($540) from the final payment price. (Approval needed) 

LIFTS: 

So, for the skiing, the price includes a 5 day lift ticket, optional 6th day available. If you want to be in the mountains, but not ski, we can deduct $340 from the trip price. If you want to ski a 6th day, we haven't been told the price yet, but it will be about $55-65 more.

LODGING: 

And what can we say about our lodging? From Big Horn Condos 3br / 3 ba condos you will have to walk all of 50 - 500 feet (depending on the unit location within the site) to the lift. Think you can live with that? We hope so ;-) Big Horn will be your home away from home for 7 nights. They are spacious, well planned and especially comfortable for groups with full kitchens, living, dining areas, fireplaces, balconies/decks, laundry and views of Lake Levinsky and Lone Mountain.

MOUNTAIN STATS: 

  • Lifts: 23 chairs, from a Tram, six-packs, quads, triples, doubles, high-speeds, and not and 11 surface.
  • Runs: 300 named runs
  • Acreage: 5,800 acres
  • Vertical Drop: 4,350 feet
  • Terrain: 15 percent beginner, 25 percent intermediate, 60 percent advanced / expert. This means that Big Sky has about 2,300 acres of beginner / intermediate terrain – more than the total acreage of many areas. 
  • Elevation: Summit (Lone Peak) - 11,166 feet, Base (Mountain Village) - 7,500 feet, Base (Lone Moose & Six-Shooter) - 6,800 feet. The Tram covers 2,828 feet in approximately four minutes.
  • Longest Run: Liberty Bowl to Mountain Mall: 6 miles
  • Snowfall: averages approximately 400+ inches annually.

SO TO SUM IT UP:

5 days off work, 5 ski days, possible 6 (maybe 1/2 day on arrival) of spring skiing, 7 nights of great walk-to-lift lodging, Airfare, van transfers, grocery stop, and with some of the best people in the world. All this to the first 24 people.
