More Named Runs & A New Chairlift Makes Getting To Slopes Faster & Easier
This year, there are a few more named runs. Big Sky Resort added three new gladed runs: OxBow, PB&J Way and Wild Bill. One is parallel to Swift Current Chairlift, one is accessible from the North Summit Snowfield and the third is off Horseshoe.
Also, Big Sky Resort more than doubled the width of Fast Lane, the main arterial from the Madison Base Area back to the Mountain Village.
One of the most noticeable improvements is the four new carpet lifts. There are three at the Mountain Village Base Area and one at the Madison Base Area.
One of the carpets is encased in a canopy to help protect riders from the elements. Crews are also reconfiguring the base area slightly to allow easier transition from one carpet to the next, and ultimately aiding the transition to a chairlift.
There is also a new chairlift in the Ulery’s Lake area called Stagecoach. The double chairlift will service people staying in the real estate area and brings the total number of lifts at Big Sky to 36.
And the improvements go beyond the mountain.
The resort continues to improve its slopeside services with a complete renovation of the Big Sky Sports Demo Center. That follows last year’s renovation of the Big Sky Sports rental shop, which created better flow and access for customers renting equipment.
Also, Big Sky Resort is adding rental delivery services this season. Guests in select properties will not have to stop at the rental shop first to grab their equipment. Delivery services will fit guests with equipment right at their hotel or condo.
Opening day is November 23, which is also Thanksgiving Day.
