Every year in March, Big Sky Resort celebrates Dirtbag Day, a holiday commemorating the belief that skiing comes above all responsibilities. Those who trust this have earned the honored title: Dirtbags.
No one knows this lifestyle better than the Dirtbag King and Queen, locals elected for their dedication to the skier’s life. Every year, the coronation is preceded by a ski parade, the powder 8s and an evening ball. This wild affair is a fundraiser for ski patrol.
Expect to see skiers sporting retro one-piece ski suits, football helmets, outfits made of duct tape, hula hoops and maybe a few whiskey-filled ski poles. There is one message here: Skiing comes first. All other things are meant for a laugh.
This year’s Dirtbag Day is Saturday, March 16.
