It's not everyday you get to see a bighorn sheep or bull elk, but at Big Sky it's a very frequent occurance. Some spots that you are likely to see animals include: bighorn sheep at the entrance to Big Sky off Hwy. 191, elk and coyotes in the meadows of the Gallatin River headwaters in the northwest corner of Yellowstone Park, bison on the Madison River near West Yellowstone, moose and geese in the Big Sky Meadow Village, mountain goats in the high cliffs of Lone Peak and Beehive basin.

Elk in YellowstoneIf you'd like the assistance of a local specialist, they will take you to excellent wildlife viewing areas and help you learn more about their lives and habitat.



Moonlight Basin and Big Sky Resort have joined to form one of North America’s largest interconnected trail networks on Lone Peak. Now, skiers and snowboarders have the option to purchase the Lone Peak Pass, allowing unlimited access to both resorts. This combined pass provides lift access to hundreds of acres of stunning summit snowfields that were previously accessible only by hiking.

Big Sky SkiingIn 2007-2008, Big Sky will offer 3,812 acres of skiable terrain accessed by 21 lifts while Moonlight Basin will offer 2,900 acres of skiable terrain accessed by 7 lifts. Between them, the two resorts operate 220 named runs and have the second-biggest vertical descent in the US, at 4,350’ (1,326 meters). The new Zero Gravity Terrain Park will debut this season as well. From steep and deep powder, to gladed runs, to perfect groomers, and wide open bowls, you will find it all!

Imagine yourself gliding through a winter wonderland of majestic mountains with a team of beautiful huskies pulling you down the trail. The only sounds you hear are the panting of the dogs and the swish of the sled runners….

Spirit of the North Dog Sled Adventures: 406-995-3424

Spirit of the North Dog Sled AdventuresNote of Experience: We did this when our boys were 10 and 12. It was super fun and super exciting (especially when Dad tipped the sled over!) Actually low on the danger scale, we saw children as young as two on this trip. The dogs are fascinating!


Glide beneath a deep-black, star-dotted Montana sky, with only the sound of crunching snow and the jingling harnesses of the Percheron draft horses, which are skillfully guiding you along the half-frozen Gallatin River. Wool-wrapped wranglers talk about the 320’s remarkable history, and maybe tell a few tall tales along the way. You and your family, along with the new friends you’ve made, arrive at the mountain man campsite, where you’re handed a steaming mug of cowboy chili, and some hot cider spiced with rum.

Note of Experience: We come out each summer to flyfish the Gallatin and the Madison. We walk/wade, we float (boats), we hire guides, we go alone. No matter if you're the one fishing or not, the scenery is outstanding, bring your camera, bear spray (never had to use it), and pack your lunch to spend the day on the river.


You can float through rollicking whitewater or gentle riffles, equipped with the safest gear and a knowledgeable guide. Rafting adventurers of all ages will never forget their whitewater raft trip down the Gallatin River. This is Montana's best river trip. If floating quietly through the open meadows is more your speed, or if you have a young family, your going to love our scenic floats.
