Re: Completely off topic
Its pretty nice, but I would recommend either Moonlight basin (essential the other side of Big Sky), or Bridger Bowl just north of Bozeman. Depends on your skill level, if you want lots of greens, blues, and some nice chutes and powder then Big Sky is the place, as long as you don't mind the crowds. Moonlight has a high percentage of long advanced runs, with a nice bowl at the top, and cheap tickets. Bridger is my favorite because of the "ridge." The entire top half of the mountain is lift served ungroomed chutes and bowls, you do need an avalanche transceiver to ride the lift though.
So its pretty much:
Big Sky- Lots of people, lots of terrain and runs (way too much to do in a couple days) If your into resorts and stuff, its the only one that really has that.
Moonlight- Well it has an awesome 6 person high speed chairlift and lots of blue and black runs, quite a few over a mile long. Lot less people, and as mentioned earlier, ~$50 tickets.
Bridger- Best snow of all of them, steepest terrain, fewest people, and lots of advanced terrain. Also, cheapest of the bunch.
You can also get a pass that allows you to ski both Big Sky and Moonlight on one ticket. But its like $90 a day, and either one has enough terrain to keep anyone happy for a day.
