MOUNTAIN LODGE WORKFORCE HOUSING
Over the course of 3 years, Big Sky Resort constructed additional seasonal workforce housing, right in the Big Sky community. The housing includes 186 beds located within the Mountain Lodge campus that provides workers pedestrian access to the Resort for convenience, quality of life, and will not burden transportation infrastructure.
MOUNTAIN VILLAGE PARKING EXPANSION
Big Sky Resort constructed over 500 parking spaces in the new Levinski lot for the 2019-2020 ski season. Skiers will have a choice of walking the short distance to the slopes or taking the parking shuttle system, which was increased by 50% capacity to service the new lot.
Replacing the original fixed-grip double built in 1995, the Ramcharger High-Speed Quad was refurbished and installed at Shedhorn. This upgrade increased capacity by 50%.
GOLDEN EAGLE WORKFORCE HOUSING
37 new modern seasonal workforce housing beds were added to the Golden Eagle complex, bringing the total to over 125 beds at this facility. Located in Big Sky's Meadow Village, Golden Eagle is walkable to Town Center and serviced by local transportation busses to allow for car-free living options.
MOUNTAIN VILLAGE LEARNING AREA
Big Sky Resort replaced three magic carpets in the Mountain Village Base Area, and one at Madison Base. One of the carpets was covered with a Big Sky Blue Bubble dome, protecting riders from the elements.
Big Sky Resort expanded snowmaking infrastructure with the purchase of 45 new mobile snowguns. These snowguns are a big step towards modernizing our snowmaking operation with more efficient equipment and increased snowmaking capacity by 50%.
The Challenger Double Chair lift was replaced with a brand-new fixed-grip triple chair with more durable components for running in harsh conditions. Due to the advanced carpet load, the lift can run 30% faster.
