CONCLUSION: It is sooo worth the effort! NOT FOR BEGINNERS: Do not go if you are a beginner/early intermediate. It is simply not worth the price (see below) as you are unlikely to be able to ski the top. Stronger intermediate skiers and up will have a blast.

My friends and I did not ski down because we were 1)not that advanced 2)have high levels of self-preservation 3) icy conditions. In all seriousness we got the timing right and didn't have to wait long for the gondola up. It was a tight squeeze with all the gear but we got to the top and took awesome pictures!

It's quite the hike but the reward from the views are spectacular. It's easy to find as it truly is a " lone peak".

It is wild at the top of Lone Peak! The day we went was so windy it was a little scary! Full 360 degree views - very little fencing or netting on edge so be careful! Quick 4 minute tram ride up.

Travel to the top of Big Sky on a gondola. On a clear day you can see forever! Choose to ski down or download again on the gondola. If skiing down, choose your way wisely. Lots of scoured rocks showing.

Exhilirating experience one that I will never forget. On a clear day the view is spectacular. Must take the tram up that is part of the lift ticket for skiing. The view was unbelivable. I am so glad we took time out of skiing, listened to a local and went up taking the tramp to the top. Unbelivable. Loved it!

We will never come back to ski now that we have toured Yellowstone. We have never been met with such rudeness in all our many travels and In Utah Wyoming and Colorado it was cheaper and everyone was so much friendlier. The rude drivers Jim James and Daniel of the shuttle buses drove wrecklessly fast but we're always late and... More

Lone Peak encompasses the largest amount of acreage in the U.S. now that it has combined forces with Moonlight Basin. Skiing for all levels. Nice village at the base of the mountain with shops restaurants. Further down from the mountain is a golf course and another group of restaurants. Plenty of slopes are used for mountain biking in the summer.
