  • About Big Sky, MT

    Big Sky is a hidden outdoor playground, and one of the nation's best kept secrets. Located in close proximity to Yellowstone National Park, outrageous whitewater rafting rivers, and some of the best blue ribbon trout fishing, Big Sky is the perfect destination for any outdoor enthusiast. The northern region of the Rocky Mountains offers a stunning backdrop to a picnic in the wildflower meadows or a hike up one of the many mountain peaks. Experience one of the few true "western" towns in America with real life cowboys and cowgirls, herds of buffalo grazing out in the back country, and that small-town, comfortable feel. Make Big Sky your home for a couple days, a week, or forever as some of the locals did.
