Big Sky Resort, Montana: Lots of resorts have big peaks on the horizon. Ours — Lone Peak — is actually on the trail map. Located just 18 miles north of Yellowstone National Park, the 2-season resort offers entertainment for families and adventurists alike, and is recognized as a premier convention destination. Big Sky was conceived and built by the late NBC newscaster, Chet Huntley, who first opened its doors in December 1973. The resort was later purchased by Everett Kircher in 1976 and has remained in the Kircher family ever since.
On the mountain, the Lone Peak Tram takes you to the top of our 11,166 foot Peak. From here you'll have some 5,532 acres and 4,350 vertical feet laid before your wide eyes. It is demonstrative evidence of our right to the title, Biggest Skiing in America®. But it isn't the only evidence. Short lift lines ensure you get all the vertical your legs can handle. And a vast diversity of terrain — from greenhorn to grab-your-avalanche-beacon — means nobody in the family will get bored. Add in 400 inches of powder, and you begin to see why every synonym for the word "big" is exhausted after a vacation at Big Sky Resort.
