STAY Big Sky: Working To Stay Safe, Stay Open & Stay Strong Through COVID-19
Our world has changed, but what makes Big Sky unique stays the same. As Montana reopens to travelers, the commitment to keeping Big Sky healthy and open is stronger than ever.
Big Sky Town Center, Lone Mountain Land Co., Visit Big Sky, The Big Sky Chamber, and our other community partners are working together to be a shining example of how a Yellowstone gateway community survives and thrives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to keep full-time Big Sky community members, second home owners, and destination travelers safe and healthy, allowing our borders and businesses to stay open through the summer season and our community to stay vibrant and strong.
If you are visiting Big Sky this summer season we welcome you. Big Sky is open and healthy in Phase II. Please work with us to keep it that way and enjoy it responsibly.
We Need You To Please Do The Following:
Wear a mask
Stay home if you are sick
From free PPE’s and hand sanitizer, online ordering and delivery of groceries/liquor/local cuisine/shopping, in home health care, to local knowledge of how to safely enjoy the great outdoors, and more, we are here for you. Together we can help Big Sky to Stay Safe, Stay Open & Stay Strong. The success of this campaign is dependent upon ALL of us adhering to the COVID-19 health recommendations set forth by the state. We are strongly urging all locals and guests to take every precaution, and be empowered to frequently inform and ask others to please enjoy Big Sky responsibly.
Please check back here and on the Big Sky Town Center social feeds for the latest STAY Big Sky updates.

MT Mask PPE’s– The MT Mask PPE’s have been acquired and are being distributed this week around Big Sky. The first wave will be sent to EMS, law enforcement, the fire department, health care professionals, etc. The second wave will be available to high risk front line workers at area businesses. The third wave will be available to any Big Sky, MT residents while supplies last (with preference to immune compromised/at risk community members). They are not intended to be used as your daily PPE during a healthy Phase II re-opening period. These PPE’s are designed and manufactured by local company Spark R&D for use in the event of a serious COVID-19 outbreak. They were purchased as a backstop when other measures have failed. This was made possible by a generously donation by Big Sky resident Will McCollum and the Moonlight Community Foundation. Read more about the donation here.
