Best time to visit Big Sky, MT, USA?

  • We recommend visiting Big Sky in the mid spring when there are fewer tourists and room rates are much more affordable. During this period, an accommodation for two costs around $140/night. Save 45% per day compared to what you would have paid in March. Temperatures are in the low 30s, a few degrees cooler than what you could experience during high season.
  • In Big Sky, tourism peaks in the early spring and this comes with higher accommodation rates. The New Year week (December 22nd to January 3rd), February 15th - 21st (Presidents Week) as well as the Summer Holiday week (July 1st - 9th) are also popular dates that you should avoid if that's not the reason for your visit.
  • Most of the snow comes to Big Sky in December.
