Big Sky Resort is truly one of the biggest skiing resorts in America, home to 5,850 skiable acres with 4,350 vertical drop, 34 chairlifts and surface lifts, and the Lone Peak Tram to 11,166 feet in elevation.
While Big Sky is renowned for its Big Mountain terrain and tram access to the top of Lone Peak, this resort has something for everyone. No matter if you are learning how to ski for the very first time, or consider yourself the best skier on the mountain, Big Sky Resort promises to leave you with a perma-grin, and with memories to last a lifetime.
Big Horn Condos are perfect for providing a spacious, delightfully home-like accommodations for large groups of friends and family in Big Sky. Each unit offers a washer/dryer, fireplaces, garage, and balcony. These 3-bedroom units are suggested for couples choosing to stay together, since bedding is limited to mostly king or queens. The property is located just a short walk to the Black Bear Poma lift and enjoys great views of Lone Mountain and Lake Levinsky.

COVID-19 Update for 2020-2021 Season
There will be a Crescent Race Series this season.
Our meeting in October generated a lot of questions and discussion re: the upcoming race season. Thank you for everyone's input and feedback. Though questions remain I want to report that Appalachian, Beech and Sugar have all communicated that they are still planning to host our scheduled races and training events. While not all Crescent racers may choose to participate, those that do want to race will have the opportunity.
Jake Laroe, Cindy Pendley and myself are preparing guidelines for Crescent races during the Covid-19 pandemic. First and foremost, ALL racers must agree to abide by the rules and procedures of the ski areas, as well as any government (federal, state, local) rules that are in effect. Very simply, appropriate face coverings and social distancing are mandatory.
The greatest impact to our races will be the pre- and post race activities, specifically indoor activities. Appalachian and Beech have both indicated that our group gathering rooms will NOT be available for storing gear. We may be able to use the spaces, subject to maximum occupancy restrictions, for race day registration, bib pickup, and booting up. Appalachian and Beech are also switching to an advance, online ticket sales system to minimize contact time with ski area employees. Sugar has not yet provided their procedures. We have already determined that we will NOT hold post-race awards ceremonies. Food services are also being modified. I encourage you to visit the ski area websites to read what each area is doing to operate safely.
Holding races this season will be challenging and not without some risk. Everyone's health and safety is the foremost priority. It is up to each individual racer to determine if they wish to participate. Under no circumstances should a racer or worker feel obligated to attend. Please respect the health and safety of yourself, your fellow racers and your families. Quite simply, if you feel attending is too risky, don't come. If you're sick or know you have been exposed, don't come.
I expect that participation will be much lower and have proposed the following guidelines for race format to the ski areas--
--more than 100 racers registered. A normal 2 division race format.
--50 to 100 racers registered. A one division race format (SL on Saturday, GS on Sunday)
--less than 50 racers. A race training event with two timed runs per racer and possibly additional untimed practice runs.
Going forward please remember that all plans are subject to change. The current surge in cases/hospitalizations/deaths has prompted North Carolina to reduce maximum indoor group sizes to 10, down from 25, effective from November 13 to December 4. Hopefully the situation will improve as our race days approach.
Thank you for your support of Crescent racing. Questions and feedback are always welcome.
Stay well, practice social distancing, wear a face covering (with a smile underneath), and wash your hands,
Race Program Chair
