Ballot for Big Sky

On Tuesday, April 30, a group of teachers piled into the “Big Blue Bus” with Jeremy Harder at the wheel in a journey to Town Center. They were wielding American Flags and pins, asserting, “It’s all about the vote” or the more simple request, “Vote.” They went en masse to appeal to Big Sky voters. 

Ski season ends with Pond Skim

Big Sky has 4 great parties during the ski season. New Year’s Eve, Snow Bar, The Dirt Bag Ball and Pond Skim. Pond Skim never disappoints for great entertainment. The combination of warm weather, crazy costumes, amazing skiing and even more amazing crashes is always a favorite and draws a big crowd to Big Sky on the closing weekend.

Water for land

A win-win quid pro quo kind of deal was initially discussed about six months ago and has reached fruition: land for SFEs (water). 

Both the Big Sky County Water and Sewer District (BSCWSD) and Big Sky Community Organization have large projects coming down the pike and found a mutually beneficial agreement. 

The show was high energy, lots of fun and had fantastic choreography.

Big Sky students have talent

The Warren Miller Performing Arts Center was greeted with the sound of basketballs, cheering and singing in Big Sky Broadway’s performance of “High School Musical” on April 5 and 6. It was the largest Big Sky Broadway production to date with 23 Big Sky High School cast and crew members.

Whatcha Seeing Out There?

Late winter is a very good time for wildlife viewing along highway and river corridors. The animals move to the open edges for food that is more easily accessed. Good wildlife viewing opportunities will be within or close to the road right-of-way.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

Big Sky native Kristi Borge and her husband Erik were living in Northeast Bozeman when they started wondering if it might be a good idea to sell their house and buy a ski area. 

Maverick Mountain was on the market, so the couple drove over on a spring day after the area’s lone lift stopped spinning for the season.
