Jack Creek Road

You’ll need a pass code to access the private portion of Jack Creek Road, and 11-ish mile passage owned by Moonlight Basin that connects Big Sky and the Madison Valley.

A mutual benefit

Two hundred thousand dollars. That’s approximately how much it costs Moonlight Basin to maintain its 11-mile stretch of private roadway which connects Moonlight, and the rest of Big Sky, to Ennis and beyond.

This landslide along Jack Creek Road is one of two, this one being much more pronounced. The slide was repaired around seven years ago, but soon began its creep downhill again. Moonlight Basin is currently investigating better ways to deal with the slide, the most recent possible fix costing upwards of $750,000.

Our other way out

Imagine your driveway happened to be an emergency access for a few of your neighbors, and it was your responsibility to maintain a safe escape route. Now multiply that by 1,000, and you’re looking at the situation Moonlight Basin faces with its ownership of Jack Creek Road.
