We had a wonderful time at Big Sky. The trip to the top of Lone Peak was awesome! Abby was our guide and she was so entertaining and full of great information. I would recommend her to everyone!

Took the lift, then truck, finally the tram to the top of Lone Peak! So incredibly beautiful! Abby Salter is the best guide! Take a jacket, it is cold and windy at the top!

Beautiful views, even in the summer. On the way up we even passed two Bighorn Sheep headbutting on the the side on the road. Awesome!

The top of lone peak is very cool. Ski in any direction. Feel like you're on top of the world. Tram itself is engineering marvel.

Great trip to the Top of Lone Mountain with a very knowledgeable local resident who grew up here and back on summer break from college. Geology, history, wildlife facts, and advice on local resturants-- Katie and Resort Management were awesome.

The resort is awash in summer mountain flowers. The ride up the mountain was full of interesting information by our guide and the views from on top were spectacular. Our gondola ride down was lovely. I’d recommend this to all visitors.

As far as I know. The peak lift is only accessible by riding a higher lift to a point above the peak lift and skiing-boarding down to it. I do not know if the resort offers a cat ride to the lift in the winter. I did not... More
