Holiday Festivities for Your Winter Trip to Big Sky


Big Sky Resort plays a central role in Big Sky, Montana. The winter season officially kicks off on Thanksgiving Day. Pack your skis (or rent them), and hit the slopes with family or friends to experience all it has to offer. We know you can feel that fresh snow under your skis and the open-air zipping by. There’s no time like now to take your family for a seasonal get-a-way.


Will you be in Big Sky over Christmas? If so, you’re in for a real treat. A winter trip to Big Sky includes fun-filled events no matter your age.

First, you have to experience the Christmas Torchlight Parade. Watch as a stream of light skis down the mountain in vivid color. Then, look up in awe and wonder at the fireworks show on Christmas Eve. Before you enjoy the show, though, take part in Christmas Eve dinner. Enjoy a traditional turkey or expand your palette with some wild game. Whatever you choose, be sure to make reservations. 

New Year’s 

Not in town for Christmas? New Year’s provides ample opportunity to celebrate and ring in the new year, too. When you fly in, get your rental car from the airport. Then, head over to Big Sky Resort. 

Once there, prepare for a New Year’s Eve to remember. Join for an upscale buffet-style dining experience in the Huntley dining room. First, start with some bubbly to get the evening going. Then, choose from lobster roles, charcuterie, or start with a lighter fare that includes pita bread and hummus. Select from gourmet steak, prime rib, pan-seared trout, or gourmet chicken for the main entree. Finally, try your best to select from a multitude of delectable side dishes and desserts. You won’t be disappointed. 

After dinner, head outside to check out fireworks as they light up Montana’s big sky. 

What could be more wonderful than spending the holiday in Big Sky, Montana? No matter how you want to experience it: physical activities, pampering yourself, living in luxury, connecting with loved ones, admiring nature, or some combination of those things, you won’t regret a minute of your stay.
