It stinks

Big Sky Community Organization (BSCO) had a rude introduction to 2021 – unprecedented vandalism at the Big Sky Community Park. BSCO Communication & Development Director Michelle Kendziorski and BSCO Parks and Trails Director Adam Johnson concurred that the vandalism was unlike anything the organization had ever encountered.

A passport to adventure

Big Sky Community Organization’s (BSCO) VIP Passport Campaign is off and running. Every $100 donated will earn one chance to win. Two hundred tickets are sold for a shot at two grand prizes: Turks & Caicos for two people, including airfare and four nights at the Seven Stars Resort & Spa on Grace Bay or the Community VIP Passport.

Many small steps and one giant leap

Rays of sunshine filtered through clouds to warm the earth on July 27 just as a community event set into motion. Shovels began tearing into the ground with glad cheers from participants as children, community members and organization leaders celebrated a tremendous fundraising push and monumental accomplishment for the Big Sky community.

This newly installed sign on the popular Mountain to Meadow bike trail seems to be working. It’s there to remind users to stay on designated trails and off private land. As the trail, and others like it in Big Sky, get used more frequently, the BSCO wants to remind bikers the trail would not be in place without the permission of private landowners—so it’s a respect it or lose it situation. On a busy day, more than 100 bikers have been counted on the trail.

Parks and rec, Big Sky style

Following a fully funded resort tax application, the July 4 road run and annual gala, the Big Sky Community Organization’s board of directors met July 19 to go over old and new business, including the possibility of a bike pump track at Community Park. 

Here are highlights from the recent discussion.

Bears, pump tracks and trespassing

It’s not a Bear Stewardship Committee meeting without some talk about who’s seen any bears lately. Most recently, reports via social media are coming in that a big bear with two cubs has been in the Mountain to Meadow Trail area. Some say it’s a grizzly, but it could be a rather large black bear. Another bear has been seen around 320 Ranch.
