Do you know the connection between NBC News Anchorman, Chet Huntley and the “Biggest Skiing in America”? Answer: Big Sky Resort.
Join Ski Hawks at Big Sky Resort
Huntley, following his career in news, returned to Montana and developed Big Ski Resort – a year-round resort and recreation center! The resort, including the Arnold Palmer-designed golf course, opened in 1973. Unfortunately, Chet passed away three days before the grand opening of the ski lifts in 1974.
There have been a lot of improvements since then, including a recent 10-year, $150-million commitment to on-mountain improvements and the new six-seat high-speed chairlift with heated seats and blue bubble covers! Now you have to go!!
Trip Dates: February 10-16, 2018. Sign up early for this trip at www.mnskihawks.org. We will be hosting a second ski trip west in March/April keep checking us out at www.mnskihawks.org or www.meetup.com/MN-Ski-Hawks.
