Golden Eagle Awards

Golden Eagle Community & Partnerships Award

In 2022, Big Sky Resort was among the recipients of NSAA's Golden Eagle Awards for our sustainability initiatives with our community partners. By working with community partners, we are better able to consider the interconnections and interdependencies throughout the system to develop more sustainable, long-term solutions. Notable initiatives included two carpool incentive programs for guests and employees and offering free bus passes; co-authoring the “Big Sky Community Climate Action Plan”; and participating in the Middle Fork Stream Restoration Project. Members of our team sit on several local boards of directors and wrote a powerful op-ed with fellow ski areas, Citizen’s Climate Lobby, and the Montana Ski Areas Association.

Our Collective Work
