While digging out the apron outside Station 1 workers found a smelly issue—a sewer line was broken beneath the old concrete area.

More demands, bigger digs

For Big Sky Fire Department firefighters, perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of the current remodel of Station 1 in the West Fork is the addition of bigger dorm rooms—an expansion upon the current lodging quarters, which were designed as closets and fit little more than a twin bed and a small locker. 

Signs of maturity?

A round up of current indicators show Big Sky is a maturing ski destination experiencing growth with more on the horizon—including additional hotels—and other amenities designed to attract and satisfy visitors. 

Big Sky School District Superintendent Dustin Shipman takes a look at his students’ ACT results, pleased to say 12 out of the 17 had a score of 22 or above, making them eligible for Montana University System admission. “We can say that 12 out of 17 of our students, when they were juniors, were prepared for college… I’m pretty proud of that,” he said.

High marks

The results are in, and for the second year in a row, Lone Peak High School came in first for ACT scores in the state of Montana, with 17 test takers averaging a 23.18. In 2015-16 LPHS came in third.

Honey, I’m home! This young bear found its way into a Big Sky vacation rental home through a window screen recently. While it’s typically OK to leave a window open while you’re home, it’s advised to shut and lock them when you’re away so these curious animals don’t have the opportunity to easily get inside.

Bad year for bears

Breaking and entering. Damaging rental vehicles. Stealing food. Digging in trash. Distracting drivers. The rap sheet is a mile long. 

     The offenders in question: black bears.
