Big Sky Intermediate Skiing

With immaculate, uncrowded groomers that go on for miles and miles, a Big Sky ski vacation is an incredibly personal experience—it’s just you and the corduroy. What could possibly be better? There are few ski resorts that can offer all those things rolled into one. The Biggest Skiing in America lift ticket offers guests’ access to Moonlight Basin and Big Sky’s combined 5,532 acres. Intermediate terrain is spread out all over the mountain including at the base of Lone Peak, offering intermediate skiers views of a lifetime.

Big Sky Intermediate Terrain

Big Sky intermediate skiing can be found all over the mountain, and comprises over 60 percent of the terrain. The Swift Current High-Speed Quad accesses intermediate terrain on either side of lift, as well the Lone Peak Triple, which brings skiers to the base of the looming and beautiful Lone Peak. Intermediate can ski down the gut of this gully on Upper Morningstar, taking in the views in every direction.

Moonlight Basin offers intermediate skiers that same uncrowded, pristine goodness that should be reserved for ski heaven. Moonlight has several ridgeline and boundary line top to bottom runs, like Horseshoe and Lookout Ridge on looker’s right side of the mountain, and Fast Lane. Moonlight Basin offers intermediate skiers the opportunity to explore the base of Lone Peak, on Stillwater Traverse, in Stillwater Bowl.

Big Sky Mountain Tours

Since the intermediate terrain is spread out over Big Sky and Moonlight Basin’s massive 5, 532 acres, first time visitors probably want to acquaint themselves with the terrain. So be sure to take advantage of one of Big Sky’s complementary Mountain Tours. Plus the mountain hosts will show you where the secret stashes are. The Big Sky Mountain Tours meet at 10:45 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Swift Current Lift.
