Big Sky's Tram and upper mountain advanced terrain is thrilling, unique, and a challenge to even the most advanced skiers. Experience Big Sky's biggest offerings in confidence with our certified Tram Guides.

You'll start the day off with your guide to gauge your ability level and understand your objectives for the day and make a plan to explore the Lone Peak Tram or other upper mountain terrain such as the Headwaters/AZ Chutes hike. 

Please note that if you're looking to hike the Headwaters/AZs, ski the Big Couloir, or North Summit Snowfield, you must have a full-day guide to allow for hiking or terrain signout time allowance. Tram access is included with this guided session, and groups are able to priority load the Tram.
