HIGHLIGHTS FOR WINTER 2014-2015
Big Sky Resort is the Biggest Skiing in America with an average, dry powder snowfall of 400” and now 5,800 acres of
desire the family ski experience and steep terrain of the 4,350 vertical foot drop Big Sky Resort offers. In addition to
skiing, Big Sky Resort offers activities beyond two planks or a board with snowshoeing, ziplining, tubing and more.
With a tight-knit base area, the Mountain Village offers close proximity to hotels, condos, cabins and individual
homes, as well as, restaurants, shopping, and full service spa. The Madison Base area is perfect for day guests.
The integration of Moonlight Basin into Big Sky Resort is still new and truly made Big Sky Resort the Biggest Skiing in
America with 5,750 acres (and now 5,800 acres). In October 2013, a soft announcement was made when CrossHarbor
Capital Partners LLC, partnered with Boyne Resorts, to acquire the assets of Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana, a
subsidiary of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. The agreement followed the July 2013 acquisition of the assets of
Spanish Peaks by the same partnership and created one of the largest and most compelling mountain resort
experiences in North America.
More skiable terrain will open due to glading projects over the summer, bringing the Biggest Skiing in America to
5,800 acres. New intermediate tree runs from the Southern Comfort high speed quad are between Deep South and
Sacajawea and between Sacajawea and El Dorado. Off the same chair lift, the intermediate run, Ponderosa has been
widened for more carving space. The glading project between Lower Morning Star and Mr. K on Lone Mountain
brings more tree skiing with a new intermediate run, as well as, the glading between Lobo and Calamity Jane opening
up a new black diamond run. An exciting glading upgrade in the Tango Trees, below the Lone Peak Triple chair lift, reestablishes
and improves this previously gladed area and will quickly become skiers’ favorite tree run. The four new
ski runs will be named soon.
Pinnacle Restaurant re-opens at the top of Andesite Mountain. After being closed for two years, Big Sky Resort
acquired the Pinnacle Restaurant and will have its grand re-opening winter 2014-2015 providing spectacular views of
