All of us in Big Sky deeply appreciate the fresh air, mountains, rivers and outdoor space surrounding us, especially during these unpredictable times in all of our lives. Just to note - when you arrive in Montana from out-of-state, the National Guard remains authorized to perform temperature checks.
In Big Sky, our hope is for all visitors to where masks while inside public places. Social distancing remains critical, please be respectful, we all want to STAY OPEN FOR YOU!
The air is so fresh and the open space we no longer take for granted. The colors are vivid, the sunsets are outstanding (stay tuned for our sunset photo blog), everyone is friendly, and pretty much always happy. You'll feel yourself relax as soon as you turn onto Lone Mountain Trail, it is the one and only road to the mountain.
If you're starting to feel like, "the mountains are calling", let us know and we'll help you plan. Our small town of Big Sky has become so popular, it is highly recommended that you make reservations and book activities prior to arrival if you have some "must dos". Call or text us at 406.551.0340 when you've decided, "I must go."
