Apres Ski in Big Sky

Several areas make up Big Sky resort: the Canyon, the Meadow Village, and the Mountain Village, all connected by a free shuttle.

Big Sky Village

The Mountain Village is the center of the resort, made up of the 10-story Summit and the seven-story Shoshone buildings. A pedestrian plaza connects the Mountain Village buildings and the Mountain Mall, and exits near the base area at the foot of several major lifts.

The Mall contains most of the resort’s shopping and eating outlets, meaning you never need brave the weather other than to ski. This is useful on stormy days but can leave the impression that you’ve spent a week underground, other than when skiing. Part of the US$400 million earmarked for resort development will go specifically to tackle the pedestrian area at some time in the future.

Apres-Ski Bars & Restaurants in Big Sky

The skiing, not the apres ski, is what you visit Big Sky for. There are no nightclubs but Chet’s bar has a “high energy show” featuring the Crazy Austrian brothers playing their classic cover songs; there’s also poker and pool.

Other bars in the Mountain Village include the Alpine Lounge, Moose River Hummer, Jack Creek Saloon, and Carabiner. The minimum age for drinking alcohol is 21, but children can accompany parents in bars before 10:00 pm.

Many popular drinking places are also restaurants, such as Dante’s Inferno. The hotel dining rooms offer some of the best eating – try Southwestern cuisine from the Peaks Dining Room in the Summit Hotel, or wild game in the Huntley Dining Room.

Big Sky Other Activities

Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, dogsledding, horseback riding are the main alternatives to skiing.
