If you have not been to Big Sky and want the best skiing in a place where there is no lines, this is it. We strongly recommend this. Good restaurants not much night life or crowds. You can see wildlife everywhere too!

Took the lift, then truck, finally the tram to the top of Lone Peak! So incredibly beautiful! Abby Salter is the best guide! Take a jacket, it is cold and windy at the top!
