Depending on the season, the peak can be accessed by tram (summer) or as a skier(winter). The event center for Big Sky Resort sits at the base of the mountain. Lodging, shopping, dining, and outdoor activities all start here.

Everything about this tour was awesome. Since we visited in June the mountain was closed for skiing. This tour took us up (via chair lift, then truck, then gondola) to the top of the mountain which had the most beautiful views. I highly recommend doing this.

Ok. So taking the Tram to the Top is not cheap but ultimately so glad we did it. The views are amazing and totally 360 from top of the peak. We had a fun guide, Emily, who chatted on just about any topic that had some relevance to the tour (and many topics that were just interesting). 😀 Snow was... More

It can be a hard hike and can test your conditioning and altitude acclimation if you leave the road and follow the southeast ridge to the top.

I drove here from Bozeman, Montana, and was very glad I did. The views of Lone Peak and the surrounding mountains are breathtaking. The drive up to the ski areas is worth taking and there are lots of great shops along the way. I also enjoyed the drive along the Gallatin River - it is a beautiful mountain stream with... More

We traveled to the top of Lone Peak in the tram. It was scary to look down but our guide was funny and informative. Tim made us feel relaxed. It was cold at the top and there was hail. The views from the top are amazing even with dark clouds and a wild wind.

I tell people this was my Mt. Everest. No, I did not climb it, although you can! My son and I took the lift, then the jeep, and then the gondola to the top! What magnificence! 11,166 feet elevation! I felt like I was at the top of the world! You can see forever and its beautiful mountains wherever you... More

Our group took the Lone Peak excursion at Big Sky Resort. Beautiful!! You take the ski lift up to the first stop, then travel by four wheeled drive vehicle to second point to a tram that takes you to the top of Lone Peak. Stunning views. A must see while in Big Sky

It's a little spendy, taking the trip to the top of Lone Peak ($88pp), but if you have a good guide who tells you the history of the mountain, in addition to the view from the top, it's worth doing at least once. Take your own family/group pictures though. The company that takes them for you (Crystal Images) charges an... More

I took the chairlift up and walked down. I was told to follow the "Moose Track" trail and there would be plenty of signs. But often I came to an intersection where this trail was not indicated. Some other hikers told me the way, but really, all of these trails lead to the resort. You are walking mostly through forest,... More
