“Lone Peak Expedition - wear warm clothing”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Did the Lone Peak Expedition that is offered by the Big Sky Resort Basecamp to Yellowstone. This was a great experience. You start off with a ski lift trip from basecamp up to another base. Then a short ride on a "safari" type jeep up to a tram and then on the tram on up to the very top of Lone Peak Mountain. After a stay up at the top you come back down the ways you went up. The peak is at over 11000 feet. From the peak you can see 3 different states. The views are beautiful. If you go be sure to wear proper clothing. it was a brisk morning at base camp when we went and the got pretty cold as we went up. It is a little bit pricey @ $83/person .

“Best skiing I've ever seen”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

Coming here year after year, I always marvel at how great the skiing is, and why I didn't find it sooner!

“Challenging Skiing”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I took the Lone Tree Lift first thing in the morning and was on the 2nd and 3rd trams of the day for the 2 days I skied Lone Peak. The first day was after a couple of days of fresh snowfall and on a sunny day. The views and skiing down Liberty Bowl were spectacular. The second day was cloudy and the snow was a bit more of a challenge. I ended up at the top of a rock garden which took a bit of an effort to get out of.

“Waahooo!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Biggest skiing in America! Try it if you dare! Take a camera because the views are magnificent. The tram is an experience in itself and you can ride it DOWN if you must or if you just want to go up for a photo op. (Take your poles!)

“Steep and deep”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Loved "the bowl" after fresh snowfalls, just off of Lone Peak Triple Chair. We never took the Tram as the runs off of it were a bit too tricky for us on snowboards. As intermediates, we loved the mountain space, especially when the runs are "open" vs. "groomed." Excellent space and runs without the crowds.
