Sin tax for Big Sky?

Big Sky Resort Area District Tax Board (Resort Tax) is looking into amending the local ordinance regarding alcohol and tobacco sales. Currently, the 3 percent resort tax only applies to alcohol sold in restaurants, but, by the start of the 2019/2020 ski season, residents could expect a shift to all alcohol and tobacco sold.

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.

Suicide Series Part Four

My own struggle was revealed in the first part of this series. I lost someone. He was brilliant and kind, gregarious and handsome. That loss gutted me in every possible way. As he started his military career a Marine, I joined Team Rubicon in memoriam of him.
