If you have not been to Big Sky and want the best skiing in a place where there is no lines, this is it. We strongly recommend this. Good restaurants not much night life or crowds. You can see wildlife everywhere too!

We had a wonderful time at Big Sky. The trip to the top of Lone Peak was awesome! Abby was our guide and she was so entertaining and full of great information. I would recommend her to everyone!

Took the lift, then truck, finally the tram to the top of Lone Peak! So incredibly beautiful! Abby Salter is the best guide! Take a jacket, it is cold and windy at the top!

Beautiful views, even in the summer. On the way up we even passed two Bighorn Sheep headbutting on the the side on the road. Awesome!

The top of lone peak is very cool. Ski in any direction. Feel like you're on top of the world. Tram itself is engineering marvel.
