All Resort lodging will open June 6, along with the swimming pools, hot tubs, spa, and the wellness center. New this summer is a plan to offer visitors some incredible vistas. All guests staying in Big Sky Resort-managed properties – as well as 2015-2016 winter season pass holders – will ride the Scenic Chair Lift free of charge. The scenic chair runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
“Since we’re located between Bozeman and West Yellowstone, our resort [has] always been a great home base for not only our summer activities, but [other] area excursions,” said Sheila D’Amico, Public Relations Manager at Big Sky Resort. “Our Basecamp to Yellowstone activity center offers a great variety of outdoor adventures families and friends can do together.”
The Basecamp to Yellowstone activity center will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. until June 29. During the peak summer season and Labor Day weekend the hours will expand to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. From Aug. 30, until closing day on Sept. 27, hours of operation will return to 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Various restaurants will be open for sit-down service, including Andiamo Italian Grille; Chet’s Bar and Grill; the Carabiner; Bunker Bar and Grill; M.R. Hummers; The Cabin; and Black Bear Bar and Grill. For quick bites before any adventure, try Mountain Mocha; Hungry Moose Market and Deli; Montana Smokehouse; Yeti Dogs; and Pizza Works Delivery.
