think Ski Magazine put it best with their review of Big Sky, Montana
Here is an excerpt from the review:
"The two-county-spanning sprawl of terrain (3,500 acres) at Big Sky often seems even larger because of a marked lack of people occupying it. "Great skiing, not crowded!" crows one reader. Big Sky isn't just about big spaces. It offers the complete package, with numerous gentle green learners such as Sacajawea and Little Wing, a fleet of finely tuned groomers that ski the way a Mercedes drives, and some of the longest, wildest double-blacks in America, including The Big Couloir, The Gullies and the infamous Dictator Chutes. Add 400 inches of gem-quality snow per season and the empty slopes seem puzzling. While many skiers consider Big Sky too long a trip, the reality is it's an easy hour's drive through three beautiful mountain ranges from the Bozeman airport. There are also drive-to amenities: cross-country skiing at Lone Mountain Ranch (five minutes), the all-world cuisine of Rainbow Ranch (15 minutes) or the world's oldest national park (Yellowstone, 45 minutes). For all of that, plus blockbuster slopes that are "like skiing on your own mountain!" "Big Sky has been my favorite for five years. Let's keep it under wraps."

It is hard for some to believe, but the Big Sky
area has two of the best western ski resorts in close proximity. Between
the established Big
Sky Ski Resort operated by Boyne USA and the newest ski resort
in the West, Moonlight
there are over 5,600 skiable acres (more than Jackson Hole, Beaver
Creek, Aspen, Vail, Deer Valley and Squaw Valley. In addition
to 5600 skiable acres, the resorts feature 4350 feet of vertical,
over 400 inches of dry, light powder, and 190 plus runs as long
as 6 miles.
In addition to the Big Sky resort, the Moonlight
Basin resort borders the northern flank of the Big Sky Resort. Moonlight
Basin's location on the Madison Range's famed Lone Mountain assures
more than 400 inches of light, dry powder snow each year. And the
trail network's predominantly north-facing exposure ensures that
snow will stay drier and fluffier than that found at most other resorts.
Most of our guests find that they can ski different runs each day
if they desire with short lift lines and mountains all to themselves!
And we might add, kids 10 and under ski free at Big Sky resort.
