We drove from West Yellowstone to Big Sky and just happened upon the Resort area. We went inside and discovered that we could go up Lone Peak. It was so amazing up top this Mountain. Once we got off the tram I stepped out into snow up to my knees which was totally unexpected since there was none at ground... More

When we went up in the Gondola we had a clear view for probably 100+ miles in every direction. The wind was a little brisk, but for high level skiers the run down the back of Lone Peak is an exhilarating experience. You can also take the gondola down again and just ski down from the lower station.

No lift lines and huge selection of ski runs makes this the best ski resort in the U.S. and only an hour's drive from Yellowstone National Park.

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.
