Comfortable and affordable lodging at Big Sky Resort with activities and amenities nearby at the Basecamp to Yellowstone. 

While Big Sky Resort is known for the 400 inches of powder that falls on its ski slopes every year, its summer activities are giving winter a run for its money. Few places make it so easy to experience Montana’s incredible summer outdoor activities than Big Sky.

Just an hour from Yellowstone’s West Entrance, Big Sky offers lodging for every budget from the mountainside Huntley Lodge to condos, cabins and homes.
