Beehive Basin is a popular trail year-round, but the winter months do offer a bit more solitude. Pack your avalanche gear and a trustworthy friend and prepare to see some stunning, jagged peaks of granite that surround the Big Sky area. From the parking lot, your hike in follows private land for about a mile—be respectful and stay on the marked trail. There are approaches from both the west and east side from here, often already marked by skin tracks—the west side offer some low angle terrain for those getting warmed up. Traverse across a prominent meadow and pick your track up to the ridgeline.
The east side offers a variety of downhill terrain with multiple tree runs and drainages. You can continue the traverse from the ridge and drop into the prominent Bear Basin as well, with breathtaking views of the Spanish Peaks. All of these routes are prone of avalanches—check the forecast with the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center before you head out and always be trained in avalanche safety protocol.
