Welcome to the Biggest Skiing in America! As of October 1, 2013, Cross Harbor in partnership with Boyne completed the purchase of Moonlight Basin and is now permanently part of one great (and huge) ski complex - Big Sky Resort. With over 30 lifts, 4,350 vertical feet and 5,750 total acres of skiing, the combination of Moonlight with Big Sky and Spanish Peaks resorts makes skiing both Big Sky bigger and better.

If you've skied Moonlight in the past for its low-key vibe and impressive terrain, you'll find the amenities and feel will remain the same, but with day tickets that don't cut you off when you hit a border. If you love (and ski) both mountains, you'll enjoy a seamless and cheaper way to enjoy all that Lone Mountain and Andesite have to offer. 

Current season pass holders at Big Sky and Moonlight Basin in the 2013/2014 ski season can keep their passes as they are, or take advantage of a limited time opportunity to upgrade to a full Biggest Skiing in America season pass at huge savings. Check out the Biggest Skiing in America Season Pass page to learn more about upgrading your season pass.

We can't wait to open this massive ski experience for the 2013/2014 winter season, our 40th anniversary, and have you be a part of it. We have new shops, more glade skiing, a redesigned beginner ski zone, and the Biggest Skiing in America waiting to welcome you back.

Big Sky Resort gives you access to more skiing than anywhere else in the United States. With a Big Sky Resort lift ticket, you can access 5750 skiable acres and endless ways to navigate 4,350 feet of vertical drop. At 11,166 feet it's easy to see Lone Peak's appeal to every age and level of skier and boarder. Runs up to six miles long and glades and bowls covered in 400+ inches of annual snowfall make a day on the slopes something different for everyone.

Big Sky, Mont. (August 14, 2013) - A joint statement has been issued on behalf of CrossHarbor Capital Partners LLC and Boyne Resorts.

CrossHarbor Capital Partners LLC, in partnership with Boyne Resorts, has entered into a definitive purchase and sale agreement with a subsidiary of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. to acquire the assets of Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana. This agreement follows the recent acquisition of the assets of Spanish Peaks by the same partnership and is the next step in the creation of one of the largest and most compelling mountain resort experiences in North America.

CrossHarbor and Boyne plan to combine the ski operations of Moonlight Basin with that of Big Sky Resort, operating the properties seamlessly and solidifying the Big Sky brand as a premier ski destination and global brand. Big Sky Resort, Spanish Peaks, and Moonlight Basin combine to create a ski resort of more than 5,700 acres of skiable terrain, with 4350 vertical feet, 23 chairlifts and 10 surface lifts, making it truly the "Biggest Skiing in America." Successfully unifying these operations will help promote economic stability and growth across the region and to all of Big Sky and will ensure Moonlight Basin's long-term and sustainable success.

Additional development within Big Sky, Moonlight Basin, and Spanish Peaks will now share a common vision and leadership. The future development of these special and unique properties will continue to follow the path of stewardship and environmental sensitivity.

Statement from Sam Byrne, Managing Partner, CrossHarbor Capital Partners: "This investment is another important step forward for Big Sky and underscores the strength of our new partnership with Boyne Resorts. In the near term, the transaction will provide some much needed stability to Moonlight Basin. But the investment also reflects the broader potential we see for the region and sets the foundation for long-term growth."

Statement from Stephen Kircher, President, Boyne Eastern Operations: "The alliance to acquire Moonlight Basin and Spanish Peaks with CrossHarbor Capital Partners, another long-term strategic player in the Big Sky area, creates the opportunity for a stable and coordinated effort in helping the community and the region fulfill its experiential and economic potential. For over 37 years, Boyne Resorts has been a steady custodian of growth of Big Sky Resort. We are truly excited about the positive impact this alliance will have on Big Sky Resort and surrounding communities in Southwestern Montana and permanently solidifying the "Biggest Skiing in America"."
