Big Sky Ski & Summer Resort:

With an annual snowfall of 400 inches, 3,500 acres of skiable terrain, 80 miles of named runs, and 4,350 feet of vertical drop, it's no wonder why Big Sky Ski Resort is a popular destination for ski vacations!  Even more impressive is the fact that Big Sky is nationally recognized for its lack of crowds.  Here, you won't spend much more time skiing the seemingly infinite terrain and less time standing in line.  Big Sky is an excellent choice for the Yellowstone visitor, because it's only 45 miles from the West Entrance of Yellowstone National Park.
