Gotta love Montucky, big sky is knarly and beautiful. Bozeman if full of other great rides but for downhill this is the place. the trails are tight in many spots and lots of very hazardous timber inches off the trail. super fun, you will not be dissapointed, make sure your bike is at least a 6" bike with GOOD brakes, very fast sections and brutal rocky sections. After head to bozeman for some killer bar scene night life and the best beer in the west.

My brother and I are from Wisconsin, where we don't have downhills like Big Sky has to offer, but we wanted to give it a try anyway. WOW....We had an excellent time!! Rented protective gear from the bike shop and rode the Tango trial 3 or 4 times. We were unsure if we could handle the other "expert" with the none downhill bikes we had. If I ever get back there again I'll be sure to rent a real downhill bike. Tango had a lot of loose rocks that could throw you easily, but we made it through just fine. Recommend making sure your brakes are in excellent condition along with your wrists and forearms. Bring a camera...the area is beautiful !!

Customer Service

Tango and any other is you feel you can handle them.

Similar Products Used: We camped at Swan Creek campground, right off of hwy 191, and rode one of the horse trails in the morning. Was an excellent ride, but we were to hung over to take it for to long, plus we wanted to get Big Sky and try the downhill there. Would recommend getting a local mt bike map, which we got at a bike shop in Bozeman. We ended up finding out that the horse trial we were on linked up to some other "mapped" mt biking trials.

Big sky is a sweet place to ride. I ride there almost 4 days a week during the summer. There are 2 new trails. Jacobs Ladder and Whisle. Both can be found riding towards Buffalo Jump. Good luck!

All I have to say is i'm glad i came out of this place in one piece. The ski resort let me rent some body armor which came in handy. You better hope you have disk brakes and health insurance lol. It was a lot of fun though especially the steep drop in at the top of the mountain that gave me a little scar from that darn tree at the bottom. I hear there are some secret routes that are not on the maps. Got to talk to the locals about those.

devo   Cross Country Rider [Nov 24, 2003]

Big Sky rocks, but I'm actually writing to inform everyone that the killer ride is across the street at North Fork Trail. It's about 8 or 9 miles of the most pristine downhill ever and I've ridden all over this country. Some of it is super steep with really technical aspects and some areas really flowy and open. If you're anywhere near Big Sky, you have to check this trail out!!

Customer Service

I'm not exactly sure how to get there. Personally we got lucky enough to meet a local and he took us up there. I suggest you do the same or look on a hiking map.

Petzel   Downhiller [Nov 18, 2003]

Some of the best riding I have ever done. Plenty of bermed turns, jumps, drops and log -piles/jumps. Each trail had it's own flavor. Soul Hole & Buffalo Jump were my favorite. Some are extremely rocky, but fun. Check w/the locals, some of the trails are not marked and they are the most advanced. There was a new trail not yet marked/completed with 8-15' drops scary steeps and stepdown jumps. Bring a downhill or freeride bike w/lots of travel and disk brakes if you can, or you will be passed like you are standing still. Very dry so super-soft tires a bonus. Totally worth a 14 hour drive from the midwest and good for 3-4 days of riding.

Lot's O' fun. Access road can be run by anyone. I rode up it one day just to see if I could do it. As far as actual trails, Moose Tracks is a good place to warm up. You can ride the brake if unsure or let loose and bomb. Buffalo Jump was a bit hairy the first run. Quite steep with fall away traversing and switchbacks. A few nice log drops (2-4 ft). Nice to ride this one with a local familiar with the trail for the first time. Regardless of where you ride, be ready for a bumpy ride - rocks everywhere. Rode a couple other trails, but can't remember the names. They are all fun.

I Rode for a week straight at Big Sky thesummerof 2002.The trails are indeed quite long and also fast, they also getpretty intense at high speeds. They have an expert only,partner only but I often rode itat top speed by myself. I plan on riding at the race this year even though I broke my wrist. Once again excellent trails and people.

The place is great. there are a lot of trails that have fast technical single track that can challenge any level of riding. There is a lot of fast rocky single track but also slower trails for the less skilled riders. The trails are groomed and there are a lot of different trails. One day of riding isn't enough.
