Chris Kamman puts soul into his filmmaking. “I wanted this life and I’m surprised that it actually coming to fruition. If someone would have told me I could make a living shooting skiing, snowboarding and fly fishing in college I would have been pretty pumped,” he said.

For the love of the mountain

Chris Kamman spent every summer of his childhood in Big Sky, selling golf balls lost by the family home on the 17th hole of the golf course and admiring Warren Miller’s filmmaking skills.

Tourists ignore signs warning of danger this past summer and descend from the boardwalk at Lower Geyser Basin to submerge their hands in the thermal water.

A hard-earned winter

Yellowstone National Park rests beneath a blanket – much earned respite from the nearly 4.2 million visits it now typically accommodates.

All but the glue and the nails have been harvested from nature for Brett Ozment’s creations.

Art on the fly

It is clear that to Brett Ozment art is freedom and freedom is art. He left the familiarity of his Missouri home with long nights spent fishing on the Jacks Fork River and moved to Montana over a decade ago to chase the powder and carve into slopes. Fishing had been his only artform – he’d skip high school classes to cast a line.

Attorneys and taxes

The decision was made at the December 21 Big Sky Resort Area District Board of Directors meeting to move forward in drafting legislation with Taylor Luther Group, PLLC that – if approved at the legislative session – would raise the threshold of resort tax at the state level from three to four percent.
