WINTER SPORTS — The expansion of Big Sky Resort in Montana is BIG news in every way.
The resort's owners purchased neighboring resorts, Moonlight Basin and Spanish Peaks in August, and debuted the transformed mega resort — now the largest in the country — during the Thanksgiving holiday.
“The acquisitions make Big Sky the big boy on the U.S. alpine skiing and snowboarding scene,” says Brett French of the Billings Gazette. “The combination means more than 30 lifts, 4,350 vertical feet of drop and 5,750 total acres for riders to roam. In comparison, the other big dog — the tony Vail Mountain Resort in Colorado — has about 5,300 acres and 3,450 vertical feet.”
The new Big Sky is treating skiers to the longest vertical run in the lower 48 states.
