Nashville Ski Club

Great Skiing and Adventures Since 1962

Big Sky, Montana
January 25 - February 1, 2014

If you’ve never been to Big Sky, you are missing out on one of the best ski experiences in the country.   Big Sky is located in a mountainous area known as the Spanish Peaks which happen to contain some of the higher peaks in Montana.  The ski area itself is built on and around a mountain summit known as Lone Peak.   The location happens to be in an excellent place to receive lots and lots of light powdery snow (average annual snowfall is 400 inches).   The ski area consists of 2 mountains of skiing: Lone Peak and Andesite Mountain.   Yellowstone National Park, only 48 miles away, will make for a wonderful day trip.   You can schedule a ride in the comfort of the snow cat, or make reservations to be one of the few that have the privilege of riding snowmobiles in the park.  We will be staying at the Summit Condos which are slopeside so they are “ski in/ ski out”.   Our two-bedroom condos come with a full kitchen, living and dining areas with fireplace.  There is a fully equipped fitness center, steam room, indoor/outdoor soaking pool and hot tub.
 
Wendy is known for arranging numerous FUN social events and dinners, so what a great way to meet new friends.  We usually have all levels of skiers from beginners to experts, so we can introduce you to someone that skis at your level for a new ski buddy.
