Guide To Skiing Around Bozeman
Smell that? It’s the Gilchrist and Soames bath products you’ll use to suds off the best day of skiing you can ever experience. Combine the comfort of fab luxury accommodation and some of the best skiing out there, and you’ve got yourself a Bozeman ski vacation. These are the spots to add to your must-shred list!
Go Big At Big Sky
For the perfect day at Big Sky, get an early start with some grab-and-go goodies from the Farmer’s Daughters, and make a break for some of the best skiing in the country. You can drive yourself, catch a shuttle bus, or hire a private car. The choice is yours!
However you get slopeside, you’ll love the shopping and dining options a quick ski break offers, not to mention the acres and acres of terrain that prove, once and for all, that Big Sky really is the biggest in the nation. You can find steep and deep powder, big bowls, prime tree skiing, and bunny hills all across the mountain. We challenge you to ski everything in a day—and good luck. With nearly 6,000 skiable acres, you’ll be anything but bored.
This is a full-service resort, but the real nightlife is back in Bozeman. So head down the mountain for après-ski fun, with cocktails, local brews, fine dining, and plenty more to clink glasses to!
Ski The Bridger Cold Smoke
It wouldn’t be a Bozeman ski guide without a nod to community favorite, Bridger Bowl. At just 16 miles from downtown Bozeman, you’ll find everyone from diehard powder fiends to college students with a few hours between classes or retirees who have been skiing for decades—and everyone in between.
On mountain, locals love the varied terrain, with gentle rolling hills, terrain parks, some of the best tree skiing out there, and the famous Ridge area, where you need an avalanche beacon and a shovel just to get on the lift.
And with a commute this short, it’s an easy trip back to the comfort of RSVP and Bozeman dining and drinking options. Make things even easier, and book a Stay and Ski Package that streamlines the whole experience for an effortless ski vacay. Throwing in a dash of luxury and VIP treatment never hurt!
Get A Mom & Pop Montana Experience
Make a day of it and head to Great Divide, Discovery, or Maverick for an out-there change of scene, where you’ll make lifelong friends on each chair and keep the beer flowing all day. This isn’t the resort experience you’re used to, so tap into your inner ski bum, and give it a go at some of these smaller, locally loved operations.
Craving Cross Country
With beaucoup rental outfitters around town, plus plenty of nearby trails to hit up without going far, cross country is anything but a bore in Bozeman. Get out for a quick skate, and then hit some local coffee shops and boutique shopping spots, or you can go for a longer day to get out there and explore the mountains.
Eschew the lift lines (not that you’ll find many!) and get fresh tracks in the wilds of Montana. And you don’t need to go alone—Montana Alpine Guides can get you outfitted and into the backcountry with ease, personalizing things with day trips and multi-day options alike. Hit lines you’ve only ever imagined, and take a load off at the end of the day with a boutique stay back in the comfort of town.
