Trip itinerary:

Day 1
2PM: Arrive at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. Hop on a shuttle to Big Sky Resort. Keep your eyes peeled on the ride for bison, bighorn sheep and bald eagles.
4PM: Check in to the Summit Hotel, at theheart of Big Sky's Mountain Village and just 100 yards from the new Ramcharger 8 chairlift.
5PM: Settle in with some local Montana brews and bites at Montana Jack's.
9PM: It's snowing. Catch some zzz's before tomorrow's powder day!

Day 2
8AM: A powder day beckons. Grab some coffee and a breakfast burrito at Lone Peak Café before heading out to catch first chair on Ramcharger 8, North America's first 8-person chairlift located just outside your door.
10AM: Catch the Lone Peak Tram up to the highest point of Big Sky Resort, 11,166 feet, and cruise down Liberty Bowl for the deepest powder.
12PM: It's been a deep morning. Head down to Peaks Restaurant for a gourmet skier's express lunch buffet, in the Summit Hotel.
1PM: Head back out for a couple more runs.
4PM: Après at Carabiner lounge and sip a specialty cocktail by the fireplace, or head to Hummers for a super casual, "wear-your-ski-boots-to-the-bar" kind of après among Big Sky die-hard skiers and locals.
A hearty Italian dinner at Andiamo willprepare you for the day ahead.

Day 3
It's a bluebird day and you're heading to Everett's First Tracks to watch the sun rise as your ski before anyone else. Your guide will show you the best stashes from yesterday's storm. Cap off an early ski morning with a cozy breakfast at Everett's 8800, at the top of Ramcharger 8.

10AM: Head over to Shedhorn to check out the new high-speed Shedhorn quad. Reward yourself and your legs for with a mid-morning break on the newly-expanded deck at the Shedhorn Yurt. Montana's sunshine will beg you to stay on the deck, but adventure on the slopes will beckon you back to the chairlift.
12PM: Grab a lunch at Headwaters Grill, on the Moonlight side of Big Sky Resort, and fuel up for a hike up the Headwaters and some of the best lines of your trip.
3PM: It's one of those days you wish you could bottle up and stay in forever. However, you've got a flight to catch. Hop on your shuttle and head back to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.
