The Ultimate Big Sky Travel Guide: 2023-24 Season


Welcome to Roam Big Sky's essential 2023-24 season travel guide! As your premier Big Sky shuttle limo service, we're here to ensure your journey to Big Sky is as smooth and enjoyable as the destination. We've compiled must-know tips and insider advice for travelers flying into Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

Timing Your Flight:

Arriving late, especially past 8 PM, often means a longer journey to Big Sky. Delays in luggage retrieval can extend your trip by almost 50 minutes. Our advice? Book a stay at a local hotel like the Kimpton Armoury or the Residence Inn by Marriott, just 20 minutes from the airport. Enjoy a restful night, a delightful breakfast, and a stroll down Bozeman's picturesque Main Street.

Morning Departure Tips:

Schedule your Roam Big Sky shuttle pick-up for 9:30 AM, dressed in ski attire. Our scenic drive through Gallatin Valley and alongside the beautiful Gallatin River is a daylight experience not to be missed. Wildlife sightings, including Bald Eagles, Elk, and Bighorn Sheep, are common and breathtaking.

Arrival in Big Sky:

Reaching Big Sky around 11:00 AM is ideal for sorting out ski rentals and grabbing the Big Sky half-day ski pass, available from noon. Remember, the usual drive from the airport to Big Sky is 65-75 minutes, but weather-related delays on US-191 are common.

Dining and Big Sky Ski Rental Recommendations:

- Dinner Reservations: Book ahead at The Horn and Cantle or Montage's Cortina's.

- Ski Rentals:  Consider hassle-free services like Black Tie Ski Rentals, Ski Butler, Christie's, or East Slope Rental.

- Roam Big Sky Concierge Shipping Service: Ship your skis in advance and find them ready in your limo upon arrival.

Why Choose a Luxury Limo Service to Big Sky?

Navigating I-191 to Big Sky can be challenging, especially in snowy conditions. Roam Big Sky’s SUVs have top-of-the-range Cooper Discoverer Snow Claw Studded winter tires, and experienced chauffeurs ensuring a safe, comfortable journey no matter the weather. Our luxury limos are top-of-the-range models with plush leather interiors, and climate control. Plus, our access to the exclusive 'limo lane' at the airport and driver meet-and-greet services provide a seamless experience.

Airport Insights:

The Bozeman Yellowstone Airport, while small, handles a high volume of flights. Expect potential delays, especially with luggage. Our SUVs comfortably seat five, or six at a push, and come with a free sky box for ski equipment upon request.

Additional Travel Tips:

- Lunch Stop: Consider Bar-3 BBQ in Belgrade for a hearty meal.

- Grocery Shopping: Pre-order from Albertsons, and we’ll pick it up en route to your condo.

- Liquor Recommendations:  Visit “The Cave” in Big Sky for a fine selection.
