With the help of volunteers, Big Sky Community Organization has had a successful inaugural season of winter trail grooming. Now is the perfect time check out some of the new Big Sky Town Center winter trails!
These wide-open and easy trails loop for approximately 2 miles with short-cut options, as well as the opportunity to continue on the Ousel Falls Road trail if you’d like to add some mileage—approximately 1.5 miles one way.
There is room for everyone: cross-country skiers, snowshoers, fat bikers, walkers and dogs alike. For those with dogs, please respect your fellow trail users by making use of the provided dog-waste station. BSCO has done a great job creating and maintaining these Big Sky Town Center winter trails, giving us more reasons to get out and enjoy the sun and snow!
The Town Center trails are easily accessible from the plowed parking lot by the ice rink at the intersection of Aspen Leaf and Simkins drives. Big Sky residents and visitors alike are enjoying the wonderful accessibility these trails provide. The snow can get deep in the winter, so this useful grooming makes its much easier to get out and enjoy the Tow Center area throughout the winter months.
“It’s been a fun winter and we’ve learned a lot about the grooming process,” said BSCO Asset Manager Jeff MacPherson, who is responsible for managing the area’s trail grooming. “With the continued support of our volunteers and the community, we’ll be doing it even better next winter.”
The Big Sky Town Center winter trails are free and open to the public. Warmer temperatures and longer days make getting out on the trails easy and fun. The trails are the perfect length for a lunch-time break or quick after-work stress reliever. Grab your dog and a leash or your cross country skis and get out to enjoy these last weeks of winter!
