Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful hike. Love the waterfall. Good hour hike. Not to bad as we are in our mid 50s. We enjoyed the views, the snow and the not to bad hike

    Beehive Basin Trail in the Gallatin National Forest, Lee Metcalf Wilderness Area of the Spanish Peaks was an outstanding hike, in fact Fox News has named it one of the best 10 hikes in the world! The trail located near the Big Sky Ski Resort gains 1650 feet of elevation over 3.5 miles as it climbs towards Beehive Peak at 10482 feet. Near the top is a beautiful mountain lake and even farther up is another small pond. We trekked near to the point where it takes climbing gear to reach the summit.

    My daughter and I spent a wonderful morning cross country skiing on beautifully groomed trails. Going by all the draft horses (12 teams at least) enjoying their breakfast was an added treat. The gear was great and the help setting us up was knowledgable and fun. The cookies after were pretty good too!

    A beautiful tribute to a family’s fallen solider. A lovely site to see and read the history and meaning behind the chapel.

    We enjoyed the 5pm evangelical Christmas Eve service. Thank you for the carols and for the lovely message on such a Holy Night.

    A truly unique experience if you are fortunate enough to swing a visit. There are some places so exclusive that once inside, they actually feel kicked back. Here, the staff is so totally professional that they blend into the scenery, while still always being there to provide whatever you need. Want to carry your own gear? Sure, they'll just ask if you want some directions to the stashes. Want to be helped? You'll be told without asking that your skis will be waiting by the Warren Miller statue, just ask if you can't find them. And your skis WILL be there. There's no show of "service dramatics" like Deer Valley. It's the happy staff's job to be unobtrusive, but they'll discuss the best runs in the French Alps or the Selkirks with you if you engage them in conversation. This is one of those rare atmospheres where EVERYONE is inside the velvet rope, so nobody is thinking about anything but the exquisite skiing. Picture a day at Megeve, Kirkwood, Snow Basin or Aspen Highlands with nobody there but you and your buds. Breakfast in a cavernous room fit for alpine royalty is "take whatever you want, sit wherever you want." No staff snootiness. The steep and deep is here if you want it (and the great Scott Schmidt will show you how to get to the goods himself), and the groomers on a good snow day rival the best that Snowmass can offer. In short, there's no reason not to love this place as much as you love Bridger or Revvy or Cham. It's the real deal, just presented in a different way. The only trick is swinging that invite.

    We stayed out at Big Sky Resort in April and used the Solace Spa for massages. Both Kennedy and Mikalyn were amazing and I would definitely recommend them!

    We went skiing at Big Sky Resort today. We had a family of 10 adults and 4 children (5 and under). We got to the resort and couldn’t get passes until 12 and equipment until 12:30. We had half day passes so the timing worked out okay.

    When we got our equipment they were helpful in getting us equipment, but not in how to use it. We were sent out to the hills with no explanations in where to go, or how to get there.

    We figured out where the learner slope was and how to use it and went from there. After we got used to things the skiing was great! We went up a couple of different lifts and down many different hills. I think every time we went down, even if we started in the same place, we went down a different way!

    All in all it was a great, fun experience!

    During my stay in Montana, I had the opportunity to go twice to Jake's Horses Ranch, and I was so pleased with both experiences. The horses are calm, kind, and very well educated—perfect for beginner to experienced riders—and the landscape is fabulous. The guides are very nice, professional, experienced, and caring about each rider. This is the best way to discover the mountains and see wildlife if you are coming to this area!

    Golfed Big Sky gold course with my wife. We both felt that the course had some very pretty views and was well maintained. Greens could be rolled a little tighter and the course could use a little more personality, but overall we enjoyed the visit. Friendly staff. Reasonable value for the greens fees charged (includes riding or pull cart). We would visit again.

    What an amazing service; you rent items and they bring to your hotel. Then, if something goes wrong, or doesn't fit well, they will immediately meet you at the Mountain and take care of business. Friendly staff and without an attitude. I owe you guys one.... Do me a favor and tip these guys, they work hard. Thank you!
