After a cold, snowy round of skiing or snowboarding, a dip in the heated pool feels fantastic! And, when I sat heated, it is HOT! At the Huntleigh Lodge, a dressing room area leads to an entrance of the pool (indoors). That first section, the temperature was up at 107 degrees F! You exit to the outdoor pool area and the temperatures are more reasonable to like warm bath water. It is great!
We noticed another nearby lodge with a similar heated pool, too! Make sure to check the hotel/lodge's amenities.
I usually enjoy horseback riding and depending on the location, it can be rather expensive. This was quite reasonable. We paid $57 per person for a 2 hour ride. I'm not sure if the rates go up during the summer. We went during the winter time (March). There was still snow on the ground and the temperatures were chilly. We took a trail that leads up quite high and you have some great views of Big Sky.
The facility itself looks run down, the horses aren't groomed, be prepared to walk in horse dung. Russ, the handler, was extremely nice and friendly. There may be other places to go horseback riding but this was the only one open all year long and during the winter months. I enjoyed it but my boyfriend wasn't too keen on it.
Okay, skiing and snowboarding, what else is there to do! Big Sky is what I call phenomenal skiing experience. Lots of runs and, especially for me, a choice of long, green runs to take. I haven't tried the blue runs because they look equivalent to the much more intermediate runs we have in Big Bear. Very nice experience!

My husband is big into fishing. I (Barb) don't eat fish, and I don't go fishing either. But my husband and son seemed to have a good time fishing here.
