Beautiful views, even in the summer. On the way up we even passed two Bighorn Sheep headbutting on the the side on the road. Awesome!

The top of lone peak is very cool. Ski in any direction. Feel like you're on top of the world. Tram itself is engineering marvel.

Great trip to the Top of Lone Mountain with a very knowledgeable local resident who grew up here and back on summer break from college. Geology, history, wildlife facts, and advice on local resturants-- Katie and Resort Management were awesome.

The resort is awash in summer mountain flowers. The ride up the mountain was full of interesting information by our guide and the views from on top were spectacular. Our gondola ride down was lovely. I’d recommend this to all visitors.

Provides the focal point for the entire Big Sky area. Challenging to get to, but totally worth the trip in summer or winter
