Big Sky, Mont. (December 1, 2014) — 16 inches of snow fell this Thanksgiving week as Big Sky Resort opened for the 2014-2015 ski season with many skiers and snowboarders thankful to be hitting the slopes again. The Resort opened three chairlifts, beginner area surface lifts, and over ten features in the Swifty 2.0 terrain park. Swift Current, Ramcharger and Explorer chair lifts opened at 9:00 am.
“It’s always fun when ski season opens, everyone has a buzz of excitement. The winter storm over the last two days allowed our Mountain Operations team to safely open as much terrain as possible,” said Sheila Chapman, Big Sky’s Public Relations.
As more snowstorms arrive, Big Sky Resort will continue to open as much terrain as quickly and safely as possible. Early season Adult lift ticket pricing will be $59 with Adult Sky Card holders receiving $10 off. The Early season price is good through December 11, 2014, as more terrain opens prices will be adjusted. Friday, December 5, 2014 is Big Sky Resort’s “twenty dollar day” with all open terrain for a $20 lift ticket.
Early season amenities are open. Big Sky Mountain Sports is offering lessons and the Big Sky Rental and Repair shop is in full swing. The Mountain Mall retail shops will be open, along with Solace Spa & Salon by appointment in the Huntley Lodge. Restaurants open in the Mountain Village include Whiskey Jack’s, Lone Peak Cafe, Mountain Mocha, MR Hummers, Hungry Moose Market & Deli and Montana Smokehouse.
Beyond the slopes, activities open at Big Sky Resort are the Adventure and Nature Zipline Tours, Snowshoe Tours, Bungee Trampoline, Climbing Wall, and Giant Swing.
