Bound for Big Sky

There’s something about coming home after a day of adventuring that feels all the more satisfying. Your skin warmed by the sun, visions of natural grandeur imprinted in your mind and your family chatting about all the fun that was had. At the soon-to-open Montage Big Sky in southwestern Montana, owners of the 39 Residences currently in development will have access to some of the most stunning scenery in the world, as well as an expert recreation team on hand to guide them throughout every activity.

Situated within Big Sky’s 3,530-acre Spanish Peaks enclave, Montage Big Sky has ski-in, ski-out access to Big Sky Resort’s 5,800 skiable acres. To help owners make the most of their experience, Montage’s Compass Sports team is providing the highest level of service to Big Sky guests and residents.

“In my opinion, the key to creating unique and memorable experiences is not just what you are offering,” says Montage International Corporate Director of Compass Sports & Recreation Andy Damman. “Our success comes from the Compass Sports team’s expertise and humble approach to ensuring our guests’ day-of adventures are designed 100% around their needs. We love to teach and give people different experiences they normally do not get to do in their daily lives.”

The ski valet team gets to know owners so they can expect the highest level of anticipatory service. This means a team will understand the mountain conditions up to the minute and select the right equipment for skiers as well as know the needs of family members, especially children. “Owners will show up to warm, dry ski boots, state-of-the-art ski tuning and waxing, with all their equipment easily accessible steps away from the lift,” Damman says.

Personalized services also include a well-appointed ski locker room and ski storage area; slope-side ski valet service and on-site ski tuning with state-of-the-art machinery that ensures guests have the most precise equipment possible.

For those interested in cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking or archery, Montage Big Sky has access to a private trail system that captures the essence of the Rocky Mountain region. Bikers will also have access to world-class demo bikes provided by Montage’s elite partners. Montage provides easy access to all these activities, as well as fully trained guides who are patient teachers and will make guests and residents feel comfortable, whether they are trying something for the first time or just need a refresher course. Recreation teams also offer special activity enhancements for those interested in unique, VIP experiences.

When the snow melts, owners can venture to Spanish Peaks Mountain Club’s 18-hole Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, located just a stone’s throw from the resort. If a rod and a reel better suit an owner, there are three world-renowned fly-fishing rivers passing through the Big Sky region. While at the resort, it is just a short car ride to Yellowstone National Park, which is ideal for exploration. There are no limits to the epic experiences and elevated services that owners have ready and waiting for them at Montage Big Sky.
