We have been back to Big Sky many times now. The skiing is really terrific and the lift lines nearly non-existent even on President's weekend.
Pros: The Summit is the most convenient hotel to the lifts. Peaks restaurant for breakfast and lunch is great and the servers are very nice. The ski valet guys and the bellman all friendly and extremely helpful. Hot tub is nice but crowded with a lot of wild kids in the afternoon.
Cons: The Summit hotel is showing its age. The furniture and beds are getting run down and the lighting in the rooms is really atrocious. Maid service is prompt but the quality of the cleaning is lacking. We had some trouble with our return flight because of weather and asked to stay another day. They had to move our room but did accommodate our request. They did not however, honor my early booking rate and charged me the rack rate for the last night. I guess they could technically do that, but it seemed like they took advantage of a very good return customer in a difficult situation.
We love Big Sky for the skiing and have been returning for many years. However, on this last visit the accommodations at the Summit, some of the service personnel and and the variety of dining are really not keeping pace with the pricing, and we'll probably try a different ski resort next year. Big Sky is hard to get to from many cities and they need to keep making it worth the trip.
