New Lone Peak Tram to Open on December 19; First Guest Rides to be Auctioned to Benefit Big Sky Community Nonprofits
BIG SKY, MT - (November 1, 2023) — Excitement is building in Big Sky, Montana, as the biggest on-mountain infrastructure project in Big Sky history, the Lone Peak Tram, will open on December 19, 2023.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Big Sky Resort will offer the first public tram cabin with 45 guest spots to be auctioned off, with all proceeds to benefit three non-profit organizations in the community: Big Sky Community Organization (BSCO), Gallatin River Task Force, and Morningstar Learning Center.
"Opening the tram is a transformational moment in Big Sky’s history,” said Troy Nedved, the resort’s general manager. “What makes this event even more special is that the funds raised through this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will be donated to three vital organizations in the Big Sky community.”
The auction, currently open for bidding, offers ski enthusiasts the opportunity to secure their place in Big Sky and ski history. Interested guests can vie for a chance to be one of the first passengers in the inaugural public tram ride, which includes a professional photographer to capture every moment of the journey, a champagne toast at the summit of Lone Mountain, and a special memento to commemorate this historic occasion.
Hosted jointly by all three nonprofits, the auction will close on November 15 at midnight, and winners will be notified upon closing of the auction. Proceeds will be split evenly among BSCO, Gallatin River Task Force, and Morningstar Learning Center.
Don't miss the incredible opportunity to be a part of Big Sky's history while supporting community organizations that are stewards of Big Sky’s recreation and trails, healthy rivers, and early childhood education.
