What's Big Sky's tourism DNA?

Visit Big Sky’s impressive work with the consulting firm Destination Think! has created a double helix of revealing insights about this community’s DNA. It’s foundational to the tourism master plan still in the works, and it’s formed using two strands of content.

Show some heart

“Have a nice day!” Those words, while seemingly simple, can really hit home for someone who could use some positivity. While “random acts of kindness” are welcome year-round, Big Sky School District teacher Erika Frounfelker is inviting Big Sky to expand its kindness quota by participating in the Great Kindness Challenge Jan. 29–Feb. 2.  

While he visits Big Sky as often as he can, House is still in awe of all the changes in his hometown lately, including the new shops along Town Center Avenue, seen here.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

The last time the Lookout caught up with Trevor House he was 16 years old, one of the first students at Lone Peak High School, and just back from Cambodia where he had participated in an American Youth Leadership program. Four years later, he’s majoring in economics with a minor in computer science at Stanford University.

As growth continues in the shadow of Lone Mountain, how can Highway 64 keep up with the increased traffic?

Highway 64 on their minds

When it comes to Highway 64, the stakes are high because it’s Big Sky’s one link to the outside world. 

“If that road fails,” said David Kack, with Montana State University’s Western Transportation Institute.
“Then the whole community is going to fail.”
