It's a little spendy, taking the trip to the top of Lone Peak ($88pp), but if you have a good guide who tells you the history of the mountain, in addition to the view from the top, it's worth doing at least once. Take your own family/group pictures though. The company that takes them for you (Crystal Images) charges an... More

I took the chairlift up and walked down. I was told to follow the "Moose Track" trail and there would be plenty of signs. But often I came to an intersection where this trail was not indicated. Some other hikers told me the way, but really, all of these trails lead to the resort. You are walking mostly through forest,... More

Amazing views in all directions! You ride the ski lift, then a truck, and finally an enclosed aerial lift to the summit. There was some snow on the summit even in July. Lots of good photo spots and there is a photographer there to take pictures which you can purchase after your trip. I would recommend this experience.

We spent $180 for my youngest and me to take the Lone Peak Expedition. This amounted to a ride on the Swiftie ski lift, a short trek across the face of the mountain in a modified vehicle, and a 6 minute tram ride to the top. The view is spectacular to be sure, but you can get spectacular views all... More

One of our hikes we planned included riding the chair lifts up Lone Peak and then hike up from there. We tried all three chair lift routes, all providing a different flavor of hiking. The shortest of the three lifts (far right when looking at the mountain) was pokey in getting us up there. We were thinking this hike would... More

It was awesome to take the chair lift and then the tram to the peak of Lone Peak! I would highly recommend it on a clear day. We went up in the morning and the clouds lifted as we got to the top. You could see a long way.

Excellent skiing during the winter months; however, I was there in June and even though it was still cold the mountain is gorgeous and still had snow at the peak. There are plenty of condos nearby and restaurants and shopping as well.

Amazing experience to the top of Lone Peak. So beautiful. So fun. We were blessed with a clear clear day. Could see Montana, Wyoming and Idaho along with Grand Tetons. Wonderful guide. You can only do this in the summer. June through September I believe. It is $88 but so worth it. Sign up at Base Camp in Big Sky
