WHAT TO DO BEYOND SKIING
In Big Sky you can have fun practicing adventure sports, such as whitewater rafting and canoeing, fly fishing for trout on the famous Gallatin River, watching rodeos during the summer, and even playing a round of golf on the mountain. Additionally, the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center, named for the ski movie director, hosts national and international events year-round.
