Scenic Lift Ride


  • Yellowstone
  • Amusement
Big Sky Scenic Lift provides our summer visitor with a bird's eye view of the surrounding mountains. Beginning at the Big Sky Mountain Village 7,500 feet above sea level, the scenic lift rises 1,600 vertical feet to an elevation of 9,000 feet.

The open air, four-passenger chairs offer round trip rides or great access for great warm weather outdoor activities. From the top, you can hike, bike, or play disc golf. Bring your mountain bike along for some high-altitude riding. Get a nice workout by hiking back down to the village on our new self-guided nature trail or tackle the summit of Lone Peak. Or if you prefer, take the scenic lift round-trip for optimum leisure, packing a picnic lunch and riding the lift back down. Tickets may be purchased from Basecamp.
