Big Sky is located in southern Montana, and it provides a convenient base for exploring the many natural areas that are nearby. Wildlife spotting, visits to Yellowstone National Park, and hiking through spectacular landscapes are all popular activities. With its diverse activities, Big Sky is a great option for groups of friends, particularly during the ski season when Big Sky Resort offers excellent skiing options as well. It's connected to the Town Center by a free shuttle bus, too, so you can get to all of the restaurants, bars, and other activities easily. This is a great destination for a girls' weekend away, a bachelor weekend, or a group of couples on a getaway.
If you're looking for a larger place for a group of friends, you will definitely need more space than what a hotel room can offer. You probably need an entire cabin or mountain house, or even a large multi-bedroom condo. We have researched the best larger vacation rentals for groups at Big Sky for your next trip.
