Big Sky in the News USA Today
Just north of Yellowstone National park, the Madison Range of southwest Montana comes to a climatic point that seems to elbow away all the other peaks. Lone Peak indeed stands alone, the dramatic 11,166-foot-high centerpiece of Big Sky’s terrain. From up here on a clear, 20-degree day, you can easily see into Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, as well as catch expansive views of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Attaining that perspective also comes easy, since lines at the 22 lifts rarely seem to get truly unwieldy, not even at the 15-person tram that services the top.
