Big Sky Resort Recognized in National Ski Magazines11/03/10
BIG SKY, Mont. — Big Sky Resort is celebrating this week after being highlighted in numerous national ski publications, including an image of Lone Peak appearing on the cover of Ski magazine.
Ski magazine, a Bonnier publication with a national circulation of 450,000, released its fall special issue resort guide with a photo of “perfect corduroy” beneath Big Sky’s “rugged” Lone Peak. The photo was taken during the 2009/2010 ski season by Public Relations Manager Chad Jones.
“Big Sky’s Lone Peak really stands out from other ski resort landscapes,” says Jones. “It’s the towering, singular mountain that really makes Big Sky who we are. I’m always looking for a way to get that iconic image out there, and was thrilled when Ski’s editors decided to feature it on the magazine’s cover this fall.”
Ski magazine is known for highlighting luxury ski travel and resorts. In the 23rd annual issue of the guide, Big Sky was ranked 21st for the nation’s best overall resorts. Also in the guide, Big Sky Resort was ranked 6th for both best terrain and most challenging mountain.
Big Sky Resort was also recently ranked as a top 10 best resort in Freeskier magazine’s 2010 Resort Guide and touted as one of the top reasons Bozeman was named the best place to live and ski in Powder Magazine’s November issue (circulation 72,000). Bozeman’s proximity to Big Sky’s 11,166-ft Lone Peak was specifically mentioned as one of the city’s greatest draws.
“It’s great to see people recognizing us nationally for what we already know: that Big Sky Resort truly is an amazing place to ski and stay,” says Jones. “Big Sky Resort is proud to be an exceptional ski mountain in a fantastic outdoor-oriented community and we’re working hard to make sure people know it.”Back To Press Release Archive
