Big Sky Improves Slope Access
Americaís biggest skiing resort, Big Sky with 5800 acres and 300 runs tumbling off four mountain peaks, made several improvements this past summer that improved slope access. They open for the season on Thanksgiving Day, November 23.
The array of improvements includes new runs, a new chairlift, and a streamlined rental delivery service that promises faster and easier access to the slopes. They will fit guests with equipment right where they are staying.
The resort added three new glade runs; Oxbow, PB&J Way and Wild Bill. The first one is parallel to the Swift Current chair, the second is accessible from the North Summit Snowfield, and third is off Horseshoe. They also widened Fast Lane, the main artery from Madison base area back to the Mountain Village, improving the flow of the run at crowded times.
Big Sky also added four new carpet lifts, three at Mountain Village base area and one at Madison base area, which will allow easier transition between carpets and transition to chairlifts. They also improved access to Big Sky Sports Demo Center with a complete renovation. That follows last yearís renovation of the sportís rental shop that also helped create a better flow and access for customerís picking up their own rental equipment and daily rentals.Source: "Snocountry.com"
