Summer In Big Sky

It’s a good thing that the sun doesn’t set until well after 9 pm during a summer in Big Sky, leaving plenty of light to make the most of every day. Summer in Big Sky is a treasured time of year for visitors and residents, opening up endless options for the recreation minded and the relaxation seekers alike. As the days get warmer, the rugged and scenic Gallatin River comes alive with rumbling whitewater and deep fishing holes. Quiet solitude can be found at the top of a peak, by a cold mountain spring, on one of the areas many hiking trails, or on a picnic in a wildflower-filled field. There’s horseback riding, fly-fishing, golf, zipline adventures, excursions to Yellowstone National Park and many other activities to fill your day.

And as the sun sets behind Lone Mountain, the stars fill up the big sky and a slight chill takes the edge off of the warm sun-filled days. It’s time to light the grill, dine at one of the lively or low-key restaurants, take in an outdoor concert, check out the weekly farmers’ market, or simply listen to the crickets sing in chorus.
