Big Sky began as a dream of the newscaster Chet Huntley carved out of wilderness in 1973 with an Arnold Palmer Golf Course in the Meadow Village and ski lifts in the Mountain Village. Signature Lone Mountain is the scenic anchor. The Resort has grown to a warm and hospitable mountain community of about 4,000 "most of the time" residents. This year-round recreation paradise is just north of Yellowstone National Park and surrounded by National Forest and the Lee Metcalf Wilderness. Big Sky is free of most of the faux swiss-chalet look or the cowboy-look that colors many other western resorts. It's an honest place!
Big Sky Resort and Moonlight Basin are now Better Together. On October 1, 2013, Cross Harbor and Boyne Resorts formalized the purchase of Moonlight Basin to create the biggest ski resort in the United States with over 30 lifts, 4,350 vertical feet and 5,750 total acres of uncrowded skiing.
