This article was co-authored by Sue Hyde.

The Big Sky, Montana region offers endless views and wide-open vistas, hence the name. That’s just the beginning of all this area has to offer. Situated between Bozeman and Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky offers a vibrant economy and plentiful cultural and outdoor recreational amenities. Read on to learn a little more about why residents love to call Big Sky home, and why visitors return to the area time and again.


Big Sky is an hour from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park, the nation’s first national park, and one of its most popular. Summer features lush landscapes and wildlife, while winter brings fewer crowds, and a new perspective on this national treasure, whether on a snowmobile, cross country skis or from the comfort of a heated snowcoach.


A variety of home and lodging choices, from family-friendly rentals to luxury penthouses, custom homes and ranches, make it easy to enjoy the wide-open spaces and Western lifestyle.


Big Sky Resort's ski terrain is effortlessly accessed by the area's many ski-in/ski-out homes in the Moonlight Basin and Spanish Peaks Mountain Club communities, as well as their member clubhouses. Yellowstone Club also sits adjacent to Big Sky Resort with their 2,200 private skiable acres and ski-accessible properties. In addition to Alpine skiing, there’s an abundance of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, winter horseback riding, sleigh rides and snowmobiling—all without the crowds.
