The storm during the first week of February dumped more than 5 feet of snow on Big Sky Resort and bringing the stoke back to the locals and visiting skiers and snowboarders.
During storm cycles especially, ski resort employees across the country work countless hours to manage snowfall and crowds, and mitigate any potential hazards while seeking to enhance the guest experience. The task is not an easy one, and it’s no different at Big Sky.
“The snow has been relentless,” said Big Sky Resort Public Relations Manager Stacie Mesuda in an email to EBS. “We appreciate your patience while we assess conditions on Lone Mountain. As always, our focus is on the safety of our guests and employees.”
