BIG SKY RESORT – A “Military Appreciation Long Weekend,” will take place at Big Sky Resort from March 12-15. During this time, active duty or retired military men and woman receive discounted lodging, lift tickets, and group lessons.

The idea is to thank our armed forces for their service to our country, according to Big Sky Resort Public Relations Manager Sheila Chapman.

“Our last Military appreciation weekend in December was so well received, that we wanted to do it again and for a longer period of time,” Chapman said. “Our snow is so great right now and skiing is a great way for military families to play together.”

Active duty, retired military and their immediate family receive a discount of more than 50 percent on lodging at the Huntley Lodge and save 15 percent on snowsport lessons, as well as discounted lift tickets.
