Big Sky Wraps-up a Successful Winter4/16/07
BIG SKY, Mont. - It may still be snowing, but for the ski hill, winter has come to a close. Big Sky Resort wraps up a record season in revenue and closes the doors to a winter of great skiing and big events. Big Sky lifts, lodging and operations officially closed on Sunday, April 15.
Revenue is up 14% compared to the 05/06 season for Big Sky Resort. This is due in part to more vacationers choosing to ski the biggest skiing in America for their winter family trips. Also adding to the success are Big Sky's new improvements and additions.
Re-opening for it?s first winter back in 10 years, Whiskey Jack's served up tasty southwest cuisines for lunch and dinner, as well as hosting live music nearly every day for Apr?s Ski, and each weekend with headliners such as Jerry Joseph, Drew Emmitt Band and Tony Furtado.
Snowtubing was introduced to the Big Sky area this winter. Running two to four nights a week, locals and visitors alike enjoyed speeding down the newly cut tube park with magic carpet access.
The skiing was great and ticket sales increased. In the second year of the Lone Peak Pass, it offered skiers the biggest skiing in America and over 5,500 acres on one ticket. The new Dakota Territory gave tram riders a new option off the peak and opened up even more terrain on the South Face.
The skies released their flakes after the beginning of the year, creating the second best February in snowfall on record. April has also been non-stop fresh tracks, with beautiful spring days in between.
The 06/07 winter brought back exciting events from previous seasons and added new happenings. Big Sky Resort hosted Grammy-nominated Daniel Powter for a concert to benefit the High School efforts in the community.
The 1st annual Friday Night Quarterpipe event brought in talented freestyle athletes from all over the state. And the ever popular RuST competition in December, Sno-Bars in January and Dummy Jump in February rounded out the calendar of entertainment.
