"Adrenaline Junkie" can be defined as a person with a compulsive desire for excitement and adventure. It's a pleasurable effect that's caused by adding adrenaline to your blood stream. Often that thrill comes from sports like rock climbing, skiing, snowmobiling, rafting, biking, and other activities that you will find an abundance of in Big Sky.
Now you don't have to be a Red Bull athlete or a stuntman to be an adrenaline junkie. Everyone has a different threshold for what makes them get an adrenaline rush. For some it may be sliding down a groomed run at Big Sky Resort, while for others it might include paragliding off of Tick Ridge or kayaking down the Gallatin River. All of these activities come with a certain risk that will make any thrill seeker cheer.
Here are a few activities made our list for the Adrenaline Junkie's Guide To Big Sky:
