Big Sky Resort Budget

0 / 5

Big Sky Budget Ski Vacation

Big Sky is the definition of a “destination resort.” It’s not near a major airport hub, which can make the travelling aspect a tad more difficult than say Denver International Airport or Salt Lake City International Airport.  Big Sky can offer two things that the other highly traveled Colorado and Utah resorts cannot: next to no lift lines and affordability without sacrificing quality. Big Sky doesn’t see the same foot traffic that some other resorts do, so you’ll usually be able to find quality lodging and dining options at an incredible rate.

Big Sky Budget Hotels

Budget hotels and condos are king at Big Sky. You can find just about every lodging preference at a modest price compared to many other resorts. With a long docket of affordable options to sift through choosing a place to stay can take some serious time. So let’s knowledgeable Mountain Vacation Specialist help make that decision quick and easy. Call, or chat with, them today.

  • Big Sky's most convenient ski in, ski out condominiums, Beaverhead provides lovely panoramic views and convenience. Walk to the Mountain Mall or to the slopes from Beaverhead condos, it’s all right there. The units are equipped with full kitchens, dining rooms and wood fireplaces. Enjoy luxury amenities for a penny-pinchers price tag, Beaverhead units have private indoor hot tubs and private garages. 
  • Big Horn Condominiums are truly a home away from home. These Spacious, well-planned and conveniently located units are ideal for families and especially comfortable for groups. Exceptional views of Lake Levinsky and Lone Mountain make you quickly forget that you’re getting this incredible lodging option for a steal. The Bear Back Poma lift is an easy 50 to 500 feet away, which is nice for families looking for an expedient ski vacation. Private garage, washer-dryer, a fully equipped kitchen, fireplace and balcony are in all condos. Access to pool and hot tub is available.
  • Nestled at the base of Lone Mountain and one-quarter mile from the base village, Powder Ridge Cabin, a ski in, ski out accommodation, offers a balcony with a private hot tub and a wooded view. There are full kitchens, a fireplace, and washer-dryer in all the cabins.

Affordable Big Sky Restaurants

For a tasty and wallet-friendly lunch, you’ll have to drop in at Yeti Dogs, located on Low Dog Road in the Mountain Village, for an old-fashioned dog. They serve up quality wieners with creative, gourmet toppings. Plus the price is right; a combo meal costs under $8. Blue Moon Bakery, on Big Pine Drive, is also another great lunch option for hearty, high-quality eats, like deli sandwiches and homemade pizza, all for a reasonable price. 

If you like Thai food (and reasonable prices and large portions) then a meal at Big Sky’s Lotus Pad, on Pine Drive is a must! This is a tiny restaurant, so get there early or head in later, avoid prime-time dinner hours or you may have to eat elsewhere. The soup bowls are huge and tasty, as are all the noodle dishes. Every Lotus Pad entrée is priced below $20.
