Big Sky Resort recently honored and recognized Sen. Max Baucus for his dedication
to highlighting both Big Sky and Montana. The ceremony took place at function
in the home of Big Sky residents Jill and Loren Bough.
Baucus has long been a promoter of Montana on the national stage. Most recently,
he acted as a key force in bringing the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation
international trade ministerial to Big Sky this May. The senator was an integral
part in highlighting Montana businesses during those meetings as well – as a host
state, Montana had unprecedented involvement in APEC proceedings.
Big Sky is an unincorporated town, so we have no mayor and we have no keys,
said Taylor Middleton, Big Sky Resort’s General Manager. “But we do have skis.
This is our unique way of letting Senator Baucus know how much we appreciate
his hard work and advocacy.”
Middleton presented Sen. Baucus with an official pair of “Skis to the City” that
displayed graphics of an American flag, Lone Peak and the U.S. Capitol building
in Washington, D.C.
