Big Mountain must be skied to be believed. Amazing terrain, incredible snow, and virtually no people. It's set in the upper most corner of Montana, near Glacier National Park. The scenery is majestic and the snow that falls there is some of the lightest to be found. This is a mountain that deserves its name. With over 3000 skiable acres, it offers cruisers, powder shots off-piste, and a reasonably sized beginner area.

The resort gets rave reviews from the American ski magazines every year and it will definitely become one of those destinations you just have to visit. But overall, there is such a lack of mainstream publicity about the area that people tend to overlook it when considering where to ski. You can get to Big Mountain very easily if combining it with Fernie in a great two-week holiday. There is just so much to ski you won't get bored.

You can stay slopeside in the perfunctory Big Mountain Resort, but it's well worth considering a stay in the great little town of Whitefish, 7 miles away. Great restaurants, bars, cute shops.

Amazing ski area, one of America's best
Truly undiscovered destination; wonderfully uncrowded
Fantastic snow record
Great two-centre with Canadian resorts just across the border en-route from Calgary
Charming town of Whitefish
Long journey from the UK, choice of three flights to own airport or 1 flight to Calgary and 5 hour drive (see two-centre option)
Slopeside village is very limited

Accommodation options abound at the mountain and in the town of Whitefish. There are cheap and cheerful inns, luxury hotels, and deluxe self-catering condos. The resort has a very good shuttle system so getting between accommodation, town, and the mountain is also very easy.

We have rates at all the best places both slopeside and in Whitefish. Let us know what you are looking for and we will advise on the most suitable options for you.


This is the resort for skiers who want to get off the beaten track, but still want the amenities they have come to expect from ski resorts. This is also the place to go if you are looking for a town and an area that loves skiing. Passionately. Big Mountain isn't called "big" just for its skiing, it offers a big helping of hospitality, comfort, and true America.

Two Centre Options: Fernie, Kimberley.
