It Snowed 16″ at Big Sky Today

Montana resort blanketed by more than a foot of fresh powder on September 18

Big Sky Resort is still open for summer activities through September 27, but the summit of Lone Peak, sitting at 11,166 ft., got a serious dose of winter on September 18. Located just south of Bozeman, Montana, the resort is reporting over 16 inches of fresh snow at the top of Lone Peak and 12 inches of snow in the bowl at mid mountain. Annual snowfall average at Big Sky is 400+ inches.

Big Sky Resort is set to open for winter play starting November 26, weather dependent. If today’s storm is any indication of what’s to come, looks like we’ll be seeing you in Montana for turkey dinner this year. The Powder Union sure had a swell time on our last visit.
