Every year, April 6th holds a special significance for Montanans – 4|06 Day!  This unofficial holiday celebrates the state's unique identity, encapsulated perfectly in its sole area code: 406. Here in Big Sky, MT, we're proud to be part of the Big Sky Country spirit, and we invite you to join the celebration! 

 The 406-area code represents more than just a way to connect. It's a symbol of Montana's wide-open spaces, breathtaking natural beauty, and the down-to-earth, welcoming nature of its people. It's the feeling of crisp mountain air on your face, the endless expanse of the Big Sky above, and the thrill of adventure waiting around every corner.
