About Big Sky
Explore Big Sky and see that the area is located approximately midway between West Yellowstone and Bozeman on U.S. Route 191, just 15 miles from the northwestern border of Yellowstone National Park. The population was 2,308 at the 2010 census. Initially called the Gallatin Canyon Basin, the “Meadow” is braided with small rivers that channel mountain snow run-off. Fishing is permitted on all of these Gallatin feeders. Two "ponds" are found on the Middle Fork that bisects the Meadow. Fishing there is permitted only for those 16 and younger.
The community is home to two large ski resorts that are sited in the "Mountain" sector: Big Sky Ski and Summer Resort and Moonlight Basin – both of which are alpine ski and golf resorts. The combined terrain of the two resorts allows them to boast "The Biggest Skiing in America." The Club at Spanish Peaks is an exclusive private ski & golf resort that has 3 chairlifts & 13 ski runs connecting it to the Big Sky Ski Resort. Another resort, Lone Mountain Ranch, is a Nordic ski and summer resort that professionally grooms over 75 kilometers of cross country skill trails. The private resort, Yellowstone Club, is located to the south and adjacent to Big Sky.
Part of the community lies in the Gallatin Canyon, along the Gallatin River, a favorite for white water rafters and kayakers. The Gallatin River, named after Albert Gallatin, who was the Secretary of the Treasury during the Lewis and Clark Expedition, is a Blue Ribbon trout stream that attracts fly-fishers from around the world. Fly-fishing outfitting firms can connect fly-fishers to renowned rivers, in particular the Madison and the Yellowstone. Some of the most exclusive living in Montana, Engel & Völkers Big Sky offers everything that is best about this state.
