Is it winter yet? Almost everyone I know is counting down the days until Big Sky Resort opens for 2018/2019 winter season. November 22nd will be here soon and if you’re like me, you can’t wait to slide on snow!
Every winter it’s exciting to learn about what’s new at Big Sky Resort. It’s safe to say that the brand new 8-person Ramcharger chairlift has been dominating the headlines. The Ramcharger 8 is a brand new 8-seat, high-speed D-line chairlift that will be first of its kind int he world. It will start spinning in December and will have a capacity of 3,200 skiers per hour!
Big Sky Resort is now a member of both the Ikon Pass and the Mountain Collective Pass, which makes it easier than ever for people to plan a trip to Big Sky. A new direct flight to BZN from Long Beach, California via JetBlue is also new this season. And of course, everyone should be excited about the lift upgrade at Shedhorn. Shedhorn is now a high speed quad chairlift shortening the ride from 10 minutes to just 5 minutes!
