For the adventure seeker, Lone Mountain Ranch provides endless opportunities for outdoor recreation. Venture to Big Sky Resort—a renowned destination for some of the "biggest skiing in America”—for world-class skiing or stay close with an abundance of activities on the Ranch. With 85 kilometers of carefully maintained woodland trails over expansive mountain terrain, it’s no wonder Lone Mountain Ranch has been voted Cross Country Skier magazine’s #1 Nordic ski destination in North America. Knowledgeable guides, plentiful snow, and a wide range of trails offer something for beginners, experts, leisurely explorers, and hardcore athletes.  

Nordic Skiing

The Ranch also features 30 kilometers of snowshoe trails that meander outside the Nordic trail system. Snowshoeing allows you to explore the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem on foot without harming the delicate biodiversity all around. Whether you embark on this adventure alone, with friends and family, or under the guidance of an expert, start your trek right from your cabin door.

At Lone Mountain Ranch, the excitement extends beyond skiing and snowshoeing, with thrilling activities like dog-sledding, horse-drawn sleigh rides, horseback riding, Yellowstone National Park Tours and summer rodeos. These experiences capture the essence of a Yellowstone-inspired adventure, promising fun for the entire family.
