Big Sky

Chad Jones/Big Sky Resort
It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Big Sky

Peak Season: December to March

All ski season is busy, but Christmas through New Year’s and the two holiday weekends (Martin Luther King and Presidents’ Day) are extra crowded, as are spring break weeks in March.

Off-Season: May to November

Prices tend to drop considerably when the snow melts, but the region still offers plenty to do, including golf at Moonlight Basin, mountain biking and hiking, world class fly fishing, and the nearby Yellowstone National Park.

Sweet Spot: April

The Big Sky and Moonlight Basin resorts get a lot of annual snowfall and typically offer excellent late spring skiing with plenty of sunshine and virtually no crowds. Lodging prices also drop in late March.
