Big Sky Ski Area

Lone Peak, the home of Big Sky Resort is striking no matter where you’re approaching it from. It’s a statuesque mountain, framed by smaller peaks, with intimidating summit chutes that gently roll over into acre upon acre of crisp groomers and well-spaced trees. It’s no wonder that this stunning peak has come to symbolize some of the best of Montana’s skiing. But beyond its great aesthetics, Big Sky has a lot to offer for skiers of every type. Its 4,300 vertical feet of skiable terrain runs the gamut from death-defying chutes high on the mountain, to playful jumps and cliffs, down to delightful glades and ripping groomers.

This Big Sky ski map, originally painted in 2014 captures the mountain in all of its glory, as well as its surrounding peaks. If you’ve ever stood on top of Lone Peak, wondering at the seemingly endless mountain ranges stretching in nearly every direction, you’ll feel right at home in this painting. And, if you’ve ever tested your mettle in the Big Couloir, or the Headwaters chutes, hanging this Big Sky trail map on your wall will let you relive those runs every day. It’s hard to conjure up a mountain more iconic to Montana skiing than Lone Peak, and Niehues’ love and respect for the mountains shines through in this painting.
