Big Sky is more of a destination resort. Good for all abilities but more choices for advanced skiers.

Awesome hike. Took Moose Tracks to Bone Crusher then up. Bone Crusher ended but it's pretty obvious where to continue. Up to the tram station. There's been brutal fire around lately so because of smoke, I hitched a ride back with the tram (as seen on the route), then hiked the South Service Rd to the base for the sake of time. Do not do this if you're afraid of heights, have vertigo, or dislike shear drop offs on both sides of a fairly narrow trail. Coming down would have been brutal if not for the tram.

Good hike. A little scrambling involved for 75 yds on ridge and towards the top due to steepness. Great views. Not recommended for dogs.
