wide open spaces
Big Sky Summer 2020
All of us in Big Sky deeply appreciate the fresh air, mountains, rivers, outdoor space and all of our unique shops and restaurants. In order for Montana to stay open to all of us, Montana now requires face coverings to be worn inside all public places and outdoors when social distancing is not possible. Big Sky thanks all of you in advance for helping to keep our activities and businesses open for you!
The air smells 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 seemingly 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 Carolyn at 406.551.0340 when you've decided "I must go!"
Big Sky Farmers Market
Our Wednesday night Farmers Market plans to open on schedule beginning June 17 through August. The Market takes in the Town Center from 5-8pm. This year's market is exciting with unique local cuisine, fresh vegetables and flowers, arts and crafts and is accompanied at times by music or a small performance of some kind.

Grab a guide and a raft and head to the Gallatin River for a big splash. Seriously, if you could see the photos of friends and families smiling as they maneuver the whitewater, you'll add this activity to your list.
