Big Sky Season Ends April 20

Posted: Updated:
BIG SKY, Mont. -

There are just two weeks left before the nation's largest ski resort closes after the winter season.

Big Sky Resort plans to close April 20, and it doesn't plan on expanding the season even though the mountain has clocked more than 400 inches of snow this year.

Officials said they always close around Easter.

This is the first season Big Sky Resort was open after acquiring Moonlight Basin in October.

Officials said this year, they've seen skiers from all over the world because of the merger.

 "It really has resonated throughout the United States and some of the European countries," said Sheila Chapman, Big Sky Resort spokeswoman. "We've seen a lot internationals come in."

Big Sky Resort will open for the summer on June 8.

Chapman says they will expand some of their summer activities to the Moonlight Basin area.
