ADVENTURES IN MONTANATuesday June 17
Big country, big adventure, big fun—Big Sky! There’s a reason that Montana is called “Big Sky” country, the dramatic mountain vistas go as far above and beyond as the eye can see. The rugged landscape, the climate, the long summer days—the very air—insist upon outdoor endeavors. Big Sky Resort is headquarters for mountain adventures. Big Sky Resort’s Mountain Village is conveniently located mid-way between Bozeman, Montana and Yellowstone National Park, and the Basecamp there offers information on an array of exciting attractions.
Greer Schott, Media Relations Manager at Big Sky Resort, says “Montana is a special place. There is so much natural beauty. At the resort, you can be right next to Yellowstone, but really stretch your legs. It’s a perfect destination for families. There’s something for everyone here.” Just being in Montana would be excitement enough for many folks, but for those who thrive on adrenaline, Big Sky Resort has so much to offer.
The most exciting news at Big Sky Resort? The new Lone Peak Tram Expedition. Since 1996, The Lone Peak Tram has been taking Big Sky Resort winter visitors to the top of the 11,166 foot Lone Peak for extreme skiing and 360 degree views. Beginning July, 2012, guests can take a guided trip via chair lift, safari vehicle, and the Lone Peak Tram to the top of Lone Peak. Stand at the summit and look into three different states (Montana, Idaho and Wyoming) and all the way to the far off, jagged Tetons—what a rush! “This is truly an expedition,” according to Greer Schott. “It makes Lone Peak accessible to those who can’t climb a mountain. It’s an American safari where you can see elk, bear, mountain goat-- all kinds of wildlife. It’s amazing!”
Big Sky Resort also offers programs for kids, Solace, a new world-class spa, and a wide variety of lodging and dining options. There are so many reasons to make a trip to Montana for once in a lifetime adventures, and as they say, “go big or go home…”
