M-BAR-T Good Student Program

Rewarding good grades with discounts on season passes.

Big Sky Resort feels strongly about continued involvement and participation in our greater region. We see Montana's youth as being the future of this great state and, as a result, we continue to support the M-BAR-T program and students at participating schools in Beaverhead, Gallatin, Madison, Park and Sweet Grass counties. With M-BAR-T, not only do we reach out to our community and stay involved in our region, but we also encourage students to strive for academic improvement and to experience the benefits of outdoor recreation.

The goals of the M-BAR-T program are to:

  • Inspire young people to achieve academic growth and excellence.
  • Provide outdoor recreational opportunities to the area's youth.
  • Promote skiing as a lifelong activity to be shared with the family.
  • Allow young people to experience the beauty, freedom, and physical challenge of snow sports.

Our aspirations program is an incentive-based program designed to encourage grade improvement and to reward students for achieving honor roll standards by providing the opportunity to receive reduced rate season passes for Big Sky Resort.
