Montana is renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty and Zen-like atmosphere. It’s where people escape the hustle and bustle of the “real” world, and savor Montana’s serene, scenic and completely laid-back natural environment.
Big Sky visitors can also view geological wonders unlike anywhere else in the world in Yellowstone National Park. The Park starts just 15 miles from Big Sky, and the West Gate Entrance is only an hour away. Guests can spot an abundance of wildlife living undisturbed in a picture-perfect natural setting. They can relax and take a refreshing soak in one of Big Sky country’s numerous natural hot springs like the Boiling River or Chico Hot Springs. The National Park Service’s Centennial Celebration is August 25, 2016.
Another eye opening experience is to take the Lone Peak Expedition to the summit of Big Sky’s Lone Peak Mountain at 11,166 feet via a 15-passenger tram. Visitors stand at what seems like the top of the world and enjoy mind-blowing panoramic vistas. With 360 degrees of views, guests can see three states, two national parks, endless mountain ranges, winding river valleys, and untouched forests.
