Took the Lone Peak Expedition - about $85.00. It was in the low 40's at the top in late June. The guide said that it had snowed at the top two weeks ago, so be prepared. The ski lift up is smooth and quiet, except for the mountain bikers going down the trails. The "shuttle" [super duty truck with kelvar tires] ride from the top of the chair lift to the tram station was good [bumpy] with great views. [about 20 minutes?] The tram/gondola ride to the was spectacular and the views were outstanding! The 30 minutes at the top goes very fast. There is a visitor log you can sign at the top. We made snow balls and took lots of photos.
The views are the reason you go on this trip !!!

I will never go to the top of Mount Everest but after being at the top of Lone Peak I will at least be able to imagine it!

We did the Lone Peak Expedition and would highly recommend it. After a smooth chair lift, the tram and a little bumpy but not bad ride on the "trawler" shuttle you arrive at the peak. The views were spectacular! The half hour on the top does go pretty quickly however so make sure you walk around and see all you want to while you're up there. Not sure what the charge is for kids, but the $83 per adult does seem maybe a little pricey, especially that you're only spending the half hour at the very top, the rest is the ride up and back but still would highly recommend it.
Dress appropriately - it is MUCH cooler on top!

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 .

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