Big Sky Resort in Montana has been working on four new gladed ski runs. These additions brings the resorts skiable acres up to 5,800 and offers some stunning tree-runs for skiers.
New Gladed Runs
The gladed additions include two new intermediate runs off of Andesite Mountain. The new “Lizette” run is situated between the Deep South and Sacajawea runs and the new gladed “Pomp” run is nestled between the Sacajawea and El Dorado runs. These two new additions are named after Sacajawea’s children and can be accessed via the Southern Comfort chair lift.
Another new gladed run is named “Lois Laine” and is located between the Lower Morning Star and Mr. K. runs. The “Sole Hole” is a new black diamond run situated between Lobo and Calamity Jane runs. Both of these new runs can be accessed via the Swift Current chair lift on Lone Mountain.
Along with these new runs, the Mountains Operations crew has also upgraded the “Tango Trees” run by thinning out selected trees and removing standing dead trees. This run is located below the Lone Peak Triple lift. They did the same on the southern exposure of Lone Peak on the Dakota Gully run making it an intermediate run more skiers can enjoy.
