It was fun to explore Big Sky and it’s an awesome ski resort because of the fact that there are NO lift lines! Like literally, you can get straight onto a lift with no wait time! The only time in two weeks that I waited for a lift was when it was a public holiday, and everyone came up from Bozeman for the day. Big Sky is such a hidden gem in that aspect, and if you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing ski holiday, this is definitely the place for you!
Unfortunately, it is quite pricey, and for those between about 13 and 20 there isn’t really that much to do after skiing. I took some yoga classes (never again!!), but that was about it. Just family time really!
Yellowstone National Park
Another amazing thing about Big Sky though is how close it is to Yellowstone National Park! We took a tour on a day when it was about -16 degrees, so it was pretty cold, but it’s one of the most beautiful areas in the world. On the tour, you actually go into Wyoming in a van with caterpillar tracks, and there is so much wildlife around, like bison and deer.
If you are looking for gorgeous pictures, it is often hard to shoot the white on white backgrounds in yellowstone, and for that, it might be better to go in Summer. But if you want gorgeous scenery that you won’t see anywhere else in the world, then Yellowstone in Winter is the Place to go!
My favourite photo that I’ve ever taken was taken at Yellowstone National Park, and it is the photo below of the snowflake that landed on my glove. I’m obsessed with catching snowflakes on my tongue, and have been ever since I was a little kid, so this photo always makes me happy whenever I seen it. Hope you enjoyed this! Let me know about your experiences in Big Sky!! 🙂
