Lone Peak looks over Big Sky Resort like a protective yet imposing figure. Big Sky is a mountain that every skier should ski and Lone Peak holds more than enough excitement and surprises for those skiers who are strong enough to try.

Lone Peak is too much for average skiers but my adept teenagers ventured up the mountain. Skiing from Big Sky to Moonlight can be confusing. Easiest route is to go up the Swift Current lift and follow the route to Cinnabar.

Unless you have a real skiing obsession and lots of money, find somewhere else more accessible and affordable!

The tram took an hour (big line). But wowowowow. The views are amazing. The powder is deep. And the pitch is steep. Ski down if you’re good. Otherwise take the tram back down.

You will never bore of watching the weather change on Lone Peak. Clouds covering its tip, the sun setting or watching skiers from the top of the tram drop into the shoots and ski what seem like death defying runs. The symbol on Big Sky...More

On a sunny day the view is incredible. On a snowy day the powder is fantastic. Get to the team early. I recommend a guided ski tour if you want to hit the doubles and avalanche areas.

The tram at Big Sky takes you to the summit of Lone Peak. From there black and double black runs over a thousand feet long await you. The summit can be intense, with single digit temps and howling winds. It's a rush!

Nothing beats the tram ride up aside from the views from the top! And then the awesome ride down! Did multiple runs off of lone peak. Tram gets busy by 10am during the ski season.

Hello! It is about 2000m elevation difference between Bozeman and the top of Lone Peak which means that it is likely to be some 15 Celsius colder at the top (or 10 if it's raining). On average it should be 50-60F so not bad... More
