Respect the range

About 10 miles south of Big Sky on Hwy. 191 is a shooting range on the west side of the road. The property is courtesy of the Forest Service, but the sweat equity to make it nice and keep it open belongs entirely to a handful of dedicated locals.

Teton Jon and the way west

Jon “Teton Jon” Rose has summited the Grand Teton five times from three different directions. For him, those summits represent his chase of a lifelong dream. His quest for the mountains was dormant for decades aside from summer trips. His career kept him firmly rooted in the Midwest.

Community goes beyond city limits

Big Sky Fire Department (BSFD) had boots on the ground over the weekend helping battle the zero percent contained, now over 7,000 acre blaze in the Bridgers.

BSFD Chief Greg Megaard, who was born and raised in the Gallatin Valley, said he does not remember ever seeing the Bridger mountains on fire like they were this last weekend.

On the prowl

Tim “Bo Tim” Pattison has faced many grizzly bears in his 45 years of hunting and picking up antlers around Big Sky. His foot was once in a sow grizzly’s mouth after he climbed a tree to try to get away from her – when she tried to pull him down.

Hola Amigos!

I was 12 years old when I arrived in Big Sky with my parents. My family had just arrived from Honduras, escaping the violence there, and I remember being the only Spanish speaker and the only person with a different skin color in my 4th-grade class.
