The Bear Basin Meadows, also known as Bear/ Hive are some of the better options for mellow skiing in the Big Sky area. It is a very wide area, about an eighth of a mile north to south and around 1000 feet of vertical. There are some dense tree islands and a few rollovers, but generally, it is easy to navigate through the powder fields. Head up Beehive Basin, taking a left just past the private property boundary, you will be ascending next to a west facing gully with prayer flags strung up in the trees. After about a 500 feet ascent, you'll be on the ridge and ready to choose your line. The upper area can be wind loaded, so be careful. Skin back up the meadows towards Beehive, being wary of rollovers.
