Big sky, tall mountains, long rivers, and wide open spaces: these are what Montana is known for. That, of course, and monumental national parks and forests. Big Sky, the town, is right in the midst of it all, but believe it or not, these things aren’t what it’s best known for. What is? Powder. Perfect, pristine snow that begs for a pair of skis or a snowboard to come plowing through it. This ranch-turned-ski resort is a bustling hotspot for skiers of all levels in the winter and a quiet town where local hikers, mountain bikers, and other outdoor adventurers have the run of the place. Get to know Big Sky like they do with our Big Sky vacation rentals.
While there are plenty of lodges in bustling Big Sky proper, most of the locals live outside the resort along Highway 191. Do they ski? Of course. But they also enjoy the other attractions around Big Sky, such as Yellowstone National Park, home to more geysers than anywhere else in the world. Stay at the cabins of 320 Guest Ranch, and you could time your wake-up call to Old Faithful.
Travelers who want to be near water they can actually play in (or on, depending on the season), may want to travel a little further outside Big Sky proper. With plenty of room to spread out, Lake View Suites is the perfect place to catch a sunset over Hebgen Lake. Better yet, catch your dinner and cook it up in your own kitchen at these digs.
What goes better with a sunset than seafood and your favorite adult beverage? Savings and all the comforts of home. When you book Travelocity’s vacation rentals in Big Sky, that’s exactly what you get: the chance to live like a local and a big, fat wallet to boot. And you thought everything was bigger in Texas!
