Big Sky

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.

He never thought he would one day own his own Big Sky-based production company and travel the world shooting ski films.

A flight for patriotism

John and Toni Delzer, owners of Delzer Diversified, a long-standing Big Sky snow and ice maintenance company, will soon get to fly in a Chinook or Blackhawk helicopter – a surprise which led to many high fives and mile-wide grins.

BEST OF THE BLOTTER

Emma Flach dribbles down the court. The 5’7” junior brought in 12 points during the December 20 home game, the most of any player on the team.

Home game heartache

Lone Peak Big Horns fans showed up full force for their girls and boys varsity teams’ first home games of the season on December 20, spilling into visitor seating as all the spots began to fill on the home team’s side. Attendees seemed to agree – it might have been the biggest fan turnout they’d ever seen.

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.

Resort tax talk

Highlights of the December 12 Big Sky Resort Area Tax District board meeting include fees for paper remittances, changes in staffing structure and developments in resort tax legislation. We know not everyone can make these meetings, so here’s a rundown on what was covered.

Paper remittance fee begins Feb. 1

Baby, it’s cold outside

The human body is a remarkable machine which alters depending on surroundings. We started asking questions at a recent staff meeting in anticipation of a cold snap: How do locals fair so much better playing in the cold than people from warmer climates? Why do visitors from flatter areas struggle so much with elevation?
