Big Sky Montana

Located in: Yellowstone Country

The scenic community of Big Sky nestles high in mountain meadows, surrounded by timberland, the Spanish Peaks Primitive Area and the Gallatin National Forest. Majestic 11,166-foot Lone Mountain towers over the paradise, where in 1969, Chet Huntley, the late newscaster, and a group of corporate investors purchased some ranchland. Chet loved his native Montana and wanted to contribute to its tourism industry by establishing a year-round resort with complete lodging and recreational facilities.

Big Sky is the home of the Big Sky Ski and Summer Resort. This lively village is a year-round playground for outdoor recreationists. Golf, tennis, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, skiing and snowmobiling are all spoken here. Gondola rides offer spectacular views in the summer. Hiking is popular in the nearby Lee Metcalf Spanish Peaks Wilderness.

For an exquisite breathtaking view of Lone Mountain, stop by Soldier's Chapel, built in 1955. This small church of native stone and logs was built as a memorial to the fallen soldiers of World War II, and to serve the spiritual needs of the ranchers and families living in the Gallatin Canyon and their many summer visitors.

Big Sky is located in southwestern Montana, 40 miles south of Bozeman and 47 miles north of West Yellowstone on US Highway 191.
