Whoever first muttered the phrase, “No friends on a powder day,” probably just didn’t have anyone to ski with that day. Luckily, skiers visiting Big Sky Resort this season and looking to partake in organized powder slaying have a wide array of options, and can shred assured that they will never have to spend a powder day alone. Whether you’re looking to spend your vacation skiing with a pro, building your confidence with a group of similarly-skilled skiers or just want to secure an opportunity to put first tracks in a prime stash, Big Sky Resort offers a ski camp for everyone:
Ski With Kim:
Since starting Ski With Kim in 1989, Kim Reichhelm, has been hosting clinics, camps, corporate skiing, private trips and adventure travel for all ages and abilities around the world. A pioneer in the ski industry, Kim was a member of the US Ski Team, an NCAA All-American for the University of Colorado Ski Team, a professional ski racer and two-time World Extreme Skiing Champion. Most recently, Kim was named one of the “Most Influential Skiers of All Time” by Skiing Magazine.
This season, from March 11-14, 2019, Kim is hosting a Women’s Ski Adventure at Big Sky Resort. Women’s Ski Adventures is a world-renowned program, offering women a chance to ski in a fun, safe, laid back and encouraging setting with other female skiers, while taking their skiing abilities to the next level. Kim hand-tailors each session, intentionally keeping groups small and organizes skiers by ability level so each group gets personalized attention. Private photo/video feedback from hand-picked guides creates a trusted and fun environment where skiers truly enjoy themselves. The improvement of skills, motivation and support throughout the week builds confidence in women on and off the hill.

Dan Egan Steeps Camps:
Are you an advanced skier looking to dial-up your skills in big mountain terrain? Look no further, because Dan Egan’s Steeps Camps provide world-class instruction on some of North America’s most iconic big mountain terrain. Skiers who sign up for a “Steeps Camp” spend three whole days receiving individualized instruction from Dan Egan and his hand-picked team of steeps instructors. To make the most of the time on the hill, participants also receive VIP tram access (yes, you get to cut the line). When the lifts quit turning for the day, “Steeps” skiers partake in a video movement analysis session for the sake of further sharpening their skills while simultaneously reliving some of their best ski days ever.

Big Sky Resort’s “First Tracks” Guided Experience:
Have you ever gotten up early on ski vacation with grand hopes of getting fresh tracks, only to find yourself spending more time working your tail off looking for the goods than actually skiing them? If this scenario resonates with you, then Big Sky Resort’s “First Tracks” Guided Experience is right up your alley. Participants in this program get to board the new Ramcharger 8 lift at 8am—a full hour before the public is permitted to load. After a quick warm up, it’s off to Lone Peak’s 11,166’ summit by way of the Swifty and Powder Seeker chairlifts and the Lone Peak Tram. Once you’ve skied enough virgin powder to make any pro skier froth at the mouth, you’ll top off your epic morning with a gourmet breakfast atop Andesite Mountain, at Everett’s 8800 restaurant.
