For the sixth year, Big Sky Resort is hosting an Educator Appreciation Weekend. It’s Big Sky’s way of saying “thanks for the great job teachers and education assistants do for our children’s futures.”

It’ll be from Dec. 20-22, so that all you educators out there some time to plan for it. Stay at Big Sky on Friday or Saturday night, bring proof of employment at any educational institution, and get a free lift ticket on Saturday and Sunday.

Educators who opt not to stay at the resort can still get a half-priced lift ticket for either day for themselves and their family members. Plus, Big Sky is also extending discounts for educators interested in lessons, base camp activities or rentals.
