Dierks Bentley + Maren Morris Headlining Wildlands Festival

Just announced! Wildlands Festival is back at the Big Sky Events Arena on August 2&3, with headliners Dierks Bentley and Maren Morris! Outlaw Partners and Lone Mountain Land Company are proud to present two nights of incredible music celebrating wild and scenic spaces.

FRIDAY HEADLINER: Maren Morris, the breakout star behind the Grammy award-winning single “My Church,” brings her roots and soulful sound to the forefront. Hailing from Texas, Morris continuously pushes genre boundaries. Her collaboration with Brandi Carlile in The Highwomen earned Americana accolades, with a special guest appearance by Dolly Parton at the Newport Folk Festival. Notably, her EDM crossover single “The Middle” with DJ Zedd stands as one of the most streamed songs of all time. If you haven’t heard it, ask your kids to serenade you – it’s a banger featured in McDonald’s and Target commercials.

With duets ranging from One Direction’s Niall Horan to her current single with DJ Diplo, Morris’s show promises something for everyone. Local music scene mainstay Annie Clements, Maren’s bassist and backing vocalist for the past 7 years, will also be recognized by many residents.

Opening the Friday show is Lukas Nelson, dedicated to the Wildlands cause and conservation. Following in his father Willie Nelson’s footsteps, Lukas and the Promise of the Real bring their unique American country rock to the mountains.

SATURDAY HEADLINER: Saturday’s headliner, Dierks Bentley, known for nearly 20 number-one Billboard Country songs, brings his high-energy hit parade to Big Sky. As humorous as he is heartfelt, Bentley’s side project, the 90s country parody band the Hot Country Knights, pokes fun at the genre’s most stereotypical leanings. Get ready for a nonstop, rip-roaring, glass-raising musical experience. Collaborating in the past with Friday’s headliner Maren Morris, there’s hope for a duo performance of their release “I’ll Be The Moon.”

Opening the Saturday show is Wyatt Flores, a fast-rising star and newcomer with a raw and powerful voice. The 22-year-old Oklahoma native’s sold-out headlining tour showcases his emotional and musical juxtaposition, drawing on themes of poverty and cultural struggle, complemented by delicate mandolin and fiddle – a perfect fit for the wild and beautiful backdrop of Big Sky.

2024 Big Sky Skijoring Best in the West Showdown

The 6th Annual Best In The West Skijoring Competition: Big Sky, MT To Host The Best Skijoring Teams In North America.

Big Sky, MT: The Big Sky Skijoring Association (BSSJ) will host their 6th annual Best In The West Showdown Presented By Delzer Diversified, Lone Mountain Land Company, Lone Mountain Ranch, & RentBiz in Big Sky, Montana on February 3-4, 2024.

The team at Big Sky Skijoring has been turning the skijoring world upside down. Now in its 6th year, The Best In The West Showdown has a reputation for pushing the envelope of competitive skijoring by pairing cutting edge course design, showmanship and elements of mountain culture never seen before. The results speak for themselves.

Last year’s event attracted over 150 of the best teams in North America with 4000 spectators. The highlight of the Showdown culminated with the Keith Sayers FMX team performing the world’s first ever snowmobile backflip over a live skijoring race. In their final run in the open division the team of Colin Cook (skier), Richard Webber III (rider) and Serge To Paradise (horse) put together a smooth clean run through the berms, jumps and flames just in time for pro freestyle snowmobiler and Winter X Games champion Willie Elam to hit the throttle and lay out a huge backflip over the team as they dashed through the finish line. The crowd went wild, as did the internet with millions of views as the spectacular moment went viral.

“When our team here at Wrangler saw that video, we had to learn more about this event,” says Clay Hanback (Sr. Manager of Western Content Marketing & Partnerships, Wrangler). “Our brand is grounded in the spirit of people who work hard, have fun, and showcase courageous individuality. After seeing the coverage of The Showdown, meeting with their team, and hearing their vision for the future, we clearly found that spirit. We are very excited to be part of the event this year and can’t wait to get out to Big Sky.”

The culture of this event is something special, said Erik Morrison, one of the producers of Big Sky Skijoring. “It’s the inclusivity of it all. Big Sky Skijoring is carrying on the tradition of skijoring while actively expanding the sport to appeal to new competitors and audiences across all generations. You have cowboys and cowgirls, ski racers, freeride competitors, die hard dirtbag skiers/riders, celebrities, families, and everyone in between on the edge of their seats enjoying the show together. Everyone is part of the culture of the event, and everyone is a VIP. The best seats in the house are anywhere with a great view of the course to cheer on the competitors, a cozy fire pit and enjoying some food and drinks with the colorful company. That’s the Big Sky vibe our team is working to cultivate with The Showdown.”

This year’s event will feature two action packed days of racing.  A total of 154 skijoring teams will leave it all on the course for their chance at a piece of the $15,000 prize purse. The Keith Sayers FMX team will be back again to perform their big air exposition during intermissions. This year’s lineup includes X Games athlete and Snowmobile Freestyle Gold winner Brett Turcotte. There will be an opportunity for the public to meet and greet with many of the skijoring and FMX athletes at the vendor village. Similar to last year, the village will offer ticket holders numerous options for local food, beverage, retail, and a comfortable atmosphere overlooking the race.

“This Big Sky venue and the community that is helping pull it all together is something special.” says Justa Adams (Executive Director of BSSJ). ”Our community partners don’t just help sponsor the event. They roll up their sleeves, dig in and build it! Thanks to the teamwork of Delzer Diversified, RentBiz and Lone Mountain Land Co. working to stockpile snow, we are able to build a quality course in the face of a lean start to the winter season. I’m really proud of our team and how things are coming together for The Showdown. I can’t wait to see what our course designers Patrick McVey (Course Groomer and General Manager at Lone Mountain Ranch) and Jeremy Ueland (Program Director of the Big Sky Ski Education Foundation) come up with this year.”

Brief Company History:

New West KnifeWorks started 26 years ago, when founder Corey Milligan decided he was tired of the ubiquitous white-or-black handled kitchen knives at his river guide job. He converted the second bedroom of his 2-bed apartment into the very first production facility (with permission from his wife Jess, under the condition that he would not ruin the carpet!)

For the first 10 years in business, Corey participated in just trade shows to build the business. 1 man, 1 van, 1 dream, and 26 years later, New West has just opened their 7th brick-and-mortar store here in beautiful Big Sky, Montana. The vision remains the same: to produce the highest-quality functional knife art in the world. Their products use only American-sourced materials, and are all assembled in their production facility located in Victor, Idaho. Each knife, Rock Block, resin magnet, etc. is taken from start to finish by a single artisan craftsperson, and arrives to the customer with a lifetime warranty and free sharpening for life.

Services to be provided and additional information:

Starting in January 2024, sharpening of knives, axes, tomahawks, scissors, shears, etc. will be available at the Big Sky location. The products do not have to be from New West. 3rd party sharpening will range from $9.00 – $25.00. Until then, sharpening projects will be sent to Victor, Idaho at no shipping charge to the customer.

Learn to throw a tomahawk! The Big Sky facility has a complete and safe location to throw. Also, get a new profile picture in an outrageous bison coat – a sustainable product that is made especially for New West. They get the pelts from a Jackson, Wyoming bison meat farm, and they are gorgeous statement pieces. While they are technically for sale, they are mostly used for props in photos.

Lastly, there is a gift for everyone in their new location as New West services the culinary community with knives, kitchen accessories and wine keys. Additionally, the Mountain Man Toy Shop provides utility knives, pocket knives, hunting and skinning knives, tomahawks, axes, apparel, and fun unique gifts such as bolt action pens, cast iron pans, sharpening kits, beaver fur koozies, navigation and survival manuals, and so much more. There are also fun things for kids such as non-artifact arrowheads, titanium whistles, high quality metal spinning tops, and fidget spinners.

They ship all over the USA, so if you are traveling and are wary about flying with these purchases, rest assured they will take care of you.
