AFTER A FULL day of work, Big Sky’s New Year’s Eve festivities were here before I knew it. I excitedly headed home where I reconvened with my girlfriend to prepare for our evening's endeavors.
Once cleaned up, we set our sights on the mountain to meet our friends at M.R. Hummer’s for dinner. We joyously shared memorable stories of the year that was over a delicious dinner with great company. One story that highlighted the evening was our friends’ recent engagement and how my buddy’s planned proposal seemed to be foiled at every turn until the perfect opportunity arose for the taking.
We were joined by a few more of our friends and continued to celebrate at Hummer’s until the countdown to midnight was upon us. Just before the start of 2013, we ventured out to the base area to take in Big Sky’s incredible fireworks display with the first round going off right on time.
Friends in tow, we made our way to Whiskey Jack’s to finish off the evening with Way Alt West Fest. The Ben Rice Band delivered a great performance mixing original tracks in with Oasis and Tom Petty covers. We parted ways at the end of the night sending our friends home with a sober ride and memories of an amazing New Year’s Eve.
