Beautiful decor and setting. A nice menu though while smaller, it provides lots of choices. Well trained, courteous, friendly staff. Food was well prepared and served hot.

We went to the morning dogsledding run with Spirit of the North and it was the experience of a lifetime! We arrived early and got to meet all the dogs and then received instruction on how to hook them up to the sleds and drive our own sled. When we got going, it was so exhilarating and amazing words can't... More

We stayed 6 nights at the Saddle ridge condos and they were perfect for our family of four. We skied from open to close and then recuperated in the hot tub. The kitchen in our house was well stocked for me to enjoy cooking. The home was clean and well supplied with extra towels, bed linens and other misc. supplies.... More

I had an outstanding day! This resort adds to the acreage of Big Sky to provide 75,000 acres of terrain! I was impressed by the range of runs from long and varied blues to exquisite double black diamond chutes to jump into. The entrance gates to some of the chairs arranged as if we were race horses await our start... More

This is the quiet side of the mountain if you can say lone peak is busy , for there is so many runs you do not see or wait for anyone. This is a great side to get out of the Sth West winds and the groomed and the ungroomed runs are great for people that can not ski to... More

The mountain offers an incredible range of terrain for every level of skiier/boarder. No crowds, great conditions and beautiful views. We were surprised that there were no lift lines during the week between... More

That pretty much sums up Moonlight Basin. I experienced a fun powder day there last Tuesday and I felt like I had the whole mountain to myself. It was awesome! The groomers (blue runs) were so fun on this mountain! Plenty of room to traverse. For lunch we dined at the Moonlight Lodge which was a real treat! I cannot... More

Although the snow didn't cooperate this year, we absolutely LOVE Moonlight! The skiing is (usually) awesome and the there are NO crowds. The tickets now include Big Sky so there is LOTS of terrain to explore.
