Quick Spring Trips: Big Sky, MT

The Hook
Thanks to a one-two punch of high elevation (11,166 feet at the summit) and far-northern latitude, temperatures at Big Sky stay colder longer throughout the season. That means snow sticks around late into spring. By mid-March, resorts farther south are organizing pond-skimming contests while Lone Peak is usually still covered in powder. Skier traffic runs out long before the snow, with two pleasant consequences: few skiers and loads of open terrain right until closing day in April.

Convenience Quotient
Moderate. The airport in Bozeman, 45 minutes north of the resort, has more than 25 direct flights arriving each day from major cities, including Denver, Salt Lake City, and Seattle.

The Deal
March 15–April 13, stay two nights at the Huntley Lodge and ski two days for $249 per person. Package includes a breakfast buffet and all taxes and service fees. Ask for the SKI Magazine promotion when booking (bigskyresort.com).

Don't Miss
Grab a ride up the Dakota triple chair, which opened in early 2008, and explore the new Dakota Territories: 212 acres of mostly expert, open-bowl skiing on the south face of Lone Mountain. You'll ski like a World Cupper.
