The Big Sky Conference's Women’s Basketball Tournament has existed since 1983. The winner of the tournament receives The Big Sky's automatic bid into the NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Championship.

Prior to 1983, no tournament was played. From the tournament's inception through the 2015 edition, each matchup was contested on the home court of the higher seed, a practice also used by the Big Sky men's tournament. The 2016 men's and women's tournaments will be the first to be held at a predetermined neutral site, with both to be held at the Reno Events Center in Reno, Nevada.

Starting in 1986, an MVP was selected at the conclusion of the championship game. In 1989, the conference added All-Conference Team honors, in addition to the MVP.
