The Top of Lone Mountain – Ride the tram at Big Sky Resort in summer or winter and take in the magnificent views. On a clear day you can see the iconic Teton Range, 110 miles to the south. An angled catwalk allows you to look down over Big Sky, creating a prime spot for the perfect shot.

With every breath, I inhaled the crisp air at the summit. I woke up to the possibility of what I wanted to create here. I wanted every woman that I could impact to feel this feeling. Knees shaking, heart racing, throat raspy & a smile so wide that the creases of your laugh lines catch the tears that slowly trickle down your cheek. 
Her Hike Collective ladies, you all have such a special place in my heart!

The Green Bridge – Not only a popular IPA at Beehive Basin Brewery, the Green Bridge is the perfect spot to take a photo to commemorate your time in Big Sky. Whether you’re jumping off the bridge into the cool waters of the Gallatin River in the summer or standing on the shore admiring how the crisp, white snow contrasts with the green metal of the bridge, Green Bridge is a not-to-miss photo opportunity.

Swiftcurrent at Big Sky Resort – The Swiftcurrent chair lift, with its stunning views of Lone Peak, is a perfect place to cozy up with some friends and take a group shot. If you’re newer to the sport, the recently added canopy on the magic carpet casts the perfect blue glow and ambiance to increase your excitement to get out and learn to ski.

Ousel Falls – The 100-foot waterfall cascading at the end of a picturesque hike in town is the perfect spot to visit any time of the year. Be sure to wear some studs on your shoes if you’re heading out in the winter, as it can be a bit icy. Take the stairs down to the landing in front of the falls and gather together for a group shot.

Gallatin Riverhouse Grill - Stand on the deck of Gallatin Riverhouse Grill, where the owners have placed a sign asking you to “Pardon the View.” Take a quiet moment to look out at the Gallatin River, surrounding mountains and forest. Along with serving classic Texas-style barbeque, the Riverhouse has some of the best views in town. Gather your friends for a frosty Montana mule and grab a photo on the deck.
