Big Sky is BIG. So what it's "not known for" is still more than what many other "known for" mountains!BS isn't known for it's tree skiing, although there is some off the Dakota Triple. It's really known for it's chutes.
2-4 sounds like it could be either bad or good advice. :lol:I learned several things on my trip there.
1. I'm not as good as a local.
2. Don't ever smoke anything they hand you.
3. Don't ever smoke anything they hand you in the middle of the woods
4. Your screwed if you do.
We just got back from Big Sky and had a fantastic time. The conditions were awesome and much better than last year.... fucking gnarly!
I suppose I should... maybe I'll do that tonight.Will you be submitting a TR? My friends who've been have all raved about it.
I made a Trip Report for anyone who may be interested:
You're very welcome, thank you for the kind words. Hopefully it helps. 10 days will be awesome! Honestly, anywhere is good to ski/ride any time of day. Crowds are pretty much non-existent at Big Sky unless you go on a holiday weekend. We went last year during President's Weekend and I think the longest I waited in a lift line was 5 minutes on that Saturday.JCB890 -
Thanks for the great trip report. I am going out there for 10 days in about 3 weeks. A lot of the stuff you mention will be really useful (where to find good trees, where to ski later in the day, etc.).
You're very welcome, thank you for the kind words.Thanks for the TR - looks awesome!
Thanks! I hope people enjoy it. It took me much longer to get it together than I anticipated. :lol:Nice pictures.
