Sleeping Giant has more to offer than unique wildlife and views - there are awesome glades, rocks to jump, and a completely natural terrain park made from trees harvested from thinning the glades.

Sleeping Giant is community run ski area so you can really soak up the hometown pride and western hospitality. You can feel confident in your skiing and riding with less crowded slopes, individualized attention in our lesson programs and unique progressive terrain.

Born the Red Star Camp in the winter of 1936-37, Sleeping Giant Ski Area officially opened in 1938, and is one of America's oldest ski areas. Today we operate under Yellowstone Recreations Foundation as a 501(c)(3) non profit ski area.

We have a unique terrain park, twice the vertical from the old days, challenging tree skiing & boarding, a carpet for those just starting out, and all of this just 3 miles from Yellowstone National Park.

There is a real sense of family here, with lots of stories from yesteryear. If the uncrowded slopes don't convince you, then let all the spectacular wildlife you see when you drive up from Cody do the honors! Sleeping Giant has a unique vibe that you won't find anywhere else. Come see where Yellowstone spends the winter!
