In her recent sequel to the first edition
of 1,000 Places to See Before You
Die, Patricia Schultz included Big
Sky, Mont.
The travel author praises what she
calls “mountain bliss without the
crowds,” stating that the resorts’ average
two skiers per acre is something
not to be missed.
“Much of the annual 400-plus inches
of snowfall is the bone-dry talc
reverently called ‘cold smoke,’” the
passage reads. (She may have mixed
up our rocks with the snow, but hey,
she went big.)
Schultz advises not missing Lone
Mountain Ranch from January-February
for cross-country skiing.
Her list also mentions staying at
the Big EZ Lodge and trying the
restaurant’s “Rocky Mountain-style
cuisine.”
The book has no shortage of Montana
throughout, including mentions of
Darby, Glacier National Park and Big
Hole Country. But the inclusion of
Big Sky could have readers flocking to
town and perhaps never leaving.
