    Welcome to Big Sky!

    The vastness of the Big Sky and the unique scenic beauty will envelop your senses and revitalize your soul. Then once you strap on your skis or board and explore the mountains, you'll feel as if this winter paradise was reserved exclusively for you. Ski Big Sky and discover acres of terrain on three immense mountains that provide you with enough variety and expanse that standing in lift lines is an anomaly to Big Sky visitors.

    The Biggest Skiing in America ticket gives skiers and riders access to a vast 5,532 acres of interconnected trails and lifts, all with one pass. Big Sky skiing has captured the ski world's attention with its awe-inspiring Lone Peak Tram to the 11,166 foot summit of its mountain namesake. The tram has bestowed the honor upon Big Sky of having the total most vertical feet of skiing in the United States and offers 360° views of Yellowstone Park, the Tetons and all three bordering states.

    Day 14 | November 14, 2019 | Paro (7,200ft / 2195m)

    This morning, head out of an excursion to Taktshang Monastery, better known as ‘Tiger’s Nest’. The monastery has become the most famous icon in Bhutan located in one of the most beautiful places. Set on a vertical cliff face at 10,000ft, it defies all engineering logic. Hike 3 hours up to get a more dramatic view of the monastery. The hike demands a higher level of fitness. The hike involves a climb on a steep footpath through pine forest festooned with Spanish moss, and an occasional grove of fluttering prayer flags. The views are well worth the effort. For those not interested in the hike to ‘Tiger’s Nest’, visit Kyichu Lhakhang, the oldest temple in Bhutan.  Take in a home stay to interact with local people and experience their daily lives.
