    Big Sky Mountain

    I am planning on taking a trip out to Montana. I had heard of Big Sky Resort and Mountain. I checked out there website and they say that they have a freeride park and downhill trails. There website doesn't have much information on the trails and pictures of the trails. I'm into freeride and some downhill. Does anyone have any thoughts about this place? Any pictures? What kind of rental bikes do they have?
    Thanks

    Big Sky resort has really improved over the past 2-3 years. Click here for some information that I posted over on the Turner board. There are some pictures of the terrain park which includes a buch of table-top jumps in sequence, a wall ride, and some ladder sections.

    As for rentals, the bike shop in the village rents Rocky Mountain bikes in a 5" and 7 or 8" flavor. My brother-in-law rented the 7" bike which had a Marzocchi Drop-off double-crown fork, Hayes 8" Mag brakes, Marzocchi 2.5" tires, etc. Don't bother with the 5" bikes.

    Hope that helps.

    Here's a link to the main (only?) bike shop at the resort. They have good resolution trail maps of cross country rides in the vicinity. I did the Storm Mountain ride and it was most enjoyable. If I recall correctly, I purchased some parts including new cables and housings, and the mechanic offered to install them for free. Stop by when you visit!

    G.A.S. is by far the best shop in Big Sky on many levels. They rent Rocky Mountain and Norco for DH bikes. Grizzly Outfitters is for tourists. They are both about 500ft from each other, but G.A.S. is a bit harder to find.

    Last year Big Sky Resort opened the second week in June. With temps in the 50's+ this March hoping for a early opening.

    I rode there last summer a bunch, it was pretty fun. Rough, really rocky and dusty trails with some nice features built up. They don't do much trail maintenance there so it keeps things challenging.

    I think it was about 8.5 hours from Boise to Big Sky, if I remember. We did it as a two day drive. Day #1, drive to Stanley and ride. Day #2, drive over to Big Sky. That made the drive more fun.
