Spring powder and blue skies are filling the last few weeks of Big Sky's ski season, which ends April 15th. Photo by Michael James Seale.
WITH A STORM rolling in today and then clearing up to blue skies by Monday, it looks like the last week of the season is going to be the best kind: bluebird powder spring ski days.
With seven inches of snow in the last 48 hours and snow accumulating all day today, there’s plenty of powder to be found right now, especially on the peak. Anything North-facing is skiing especially nicely - check out Rice Bowl and Crazy Horse for the good stuff.
So bring out the powder skis and hit the slopes– this coming week marks free skiing for Frequent Sky Card holders and two separate discount days (college students ski for $19 on April 10th and everyone skis for $29 on April 11th when they sign up online in advance). Cheap powder skiing on bluebird days? Looks like the season at Big Sky is going out with a bang.
Check out the Big Sky Snow Report and the 7-day forecast from NOAA to stay updated on conditions.
Get the skinny on all things snow with the weekly Ski Skinny on The Way I Ski It. It’s a special conditions report with intel on snow quality, where to head on the hill, and expert advice on what to pull from your quiver to get the most out of your day on the slopes. Fatty pow skis or groomer go-tos? Get the skinny here.
