Sleeping Giant Ski Area, Wyoming

Where Yellowstone Spends the Winter

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 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!
