A familiar face, a new role

You may notice a familiar face back in town, but in a whole new role. The Lone Peak Lookout is pleased to welcome Austin Samuels back to our team for the summer. Samuels is pursuing a career in journalism and we are honored to give him some first-hand experience in his home town.

The red flag

Picture this: a pandemic happens, everyone decides to embark upon home improvement projects and couch purchases skyrocket. As the pandemic starts to seem a bit more manageable, you find yourself moving to a new town to begin the next step in your career. The problem is you do not own a couch and all couches are backordered through the summer.

An early peek at BASE

Lone Peak dominated the horizon and a sea of blue around it, a handful of the people who have been instrumental in funding and forming Big Sky’s BASE stood on the roof, taking photo opportunities, delighting in seeing it come to fruition.
