Big Sky Events

Located in southwestern Montana, just one hour from Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky is as much a summer paradise as a winter one. Big Sky Resort sits at 7,218 feet and offers 40 miles of lift accessible hike and bike trails. For those interested in doing a little climbing sans bike, the Gallatin Canyon is home to a number of exciting rock climbing features.

Anglers can test their skills along the blue ribbon water of the Gallatin River, while thrill seekers can float its rollicking whitewater. Other summer activities include golfing at an Arnold Palmer designed public golf course, horseback riding, skeet shooting, Yellowstone park tours and guided hiking.
