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.
Our First Tracks Tram Guide gets you an hour of guided skiing before the resort opens, allowing you to make your way to the Lone Peak Tram first in line. You'll start the day with your guide to gauge your ability level, understand your objectives for the day, and plan to explore the Lone Peak Tram or other upper mountain terrain such as the Headwaters/AZ Chutes hike. 
Tram access is included with this guided session, and groups are able to priority load the Tram.
