Located at one of the US’s most popular ski destinations, Montana’s Big Sky Resort, and part of Spanish Peaks Mountain Club, Montage Big Sky (above) will feature 150 guestrooms and suites and 39 Montage Residences, making it the perfect hideaway for die-hard snow bunnies. Amenities at the new alpine retreat will include multiple dining venues, an 11,000sqft Spa Montage, a fitness center and indoor lap pool, an outdoor family pool, and those all-important hot tubs.

In winter, the property is ski-in, ski-out to Big Sky Resort’s 2,367-hectares (5,850-acres) of terrain, and in summer it’s just off Spanish Peaks Mountain Club’s Tom Weiskopf-signature golf course. There’s also an abundance of opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, and other outdoor adventures, and the natural wonders and wildlife of Yellowstone National Park are nearby.
