A blinking blue light on the Baxter and a smattering of Subarus and Toyota trucks filled with skis and boards are sure signs of one thing in Montana: ski season. This year, Moonlight Basin, Big Sky, and Bridger Bowl are offering a bundle of new amenities and services to make your days on the mountain more productive and more environmentally friendly.

The Skyline Bus (with 47 seats) resumes its winter schedule of six round trips from MSU to Moonlight Basin, with several stops (including the Mountain Village at Big Sky) along the way. Moonlight Basin is a proud sponsor of this alternative transportation tool, which helps alleviate traffic congestion in Gallatin Canyon as well as reducing the carbon footprint of skiers on their way to shred powder turns off Lone Peak. For a complete bus schedule visit skylinebus.com.

Bridger Bowl is also hopping on the shuttle-to-ski bandwagon, resuming its free park-n-ride bus system from the Gallatin County Fairgrounds. A new kids’ bus departs from McDonald’s (with a stop at the Fairgrounds) on weekends and during school vacations. A printable bus schedule is available at bridgerbowl.com.

The biggest news concerns Big Sky Resort and its new Dakota Territory Lift, as well as the brand spankin’ new Mountain Village expansion. The new lift will serve the popular Dakota Bowl as well as the Bavarian Forest, for you tree skiers. Located on the south side of Lone Peak, the lift lets you session all of the fresh tracks on this side of the mountain. The new expansion at the Mountain Village offers an additional 10,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space as well as entertainment suites on the upper level. If you forget your hat, helmet, or your entire winter kit, you’ll be able to regroup easily, slope-side. For more information visit bigskyresort.com.
