Montana’s Big Sky Ski & Summer Resort is boasting that its new tram will give it more vertical feet of ski terrain than any other U.S. resort.
The Lone Peak Tram will use two 15-passenger cars to lift skiers 3,300 feet to an elevation of 11,150 feet, just 16 feet shy of the summit.
Resort officials say it’s 4,180 feet from the top of the tram to the base of the lowest lift-served run.
Big Sky is spending $3 million on two new lifts.
Also, Horizon Airlines has announced twice-weekly non-stop jet service between Seattle and Bozeman. Info: (800) 548-4486.
