One of my favorite parts of winter in Big Sky is meeting new people on the lifts. It amazes me where people come from, what they do, and why they come to Big Sky. Six Shooter is the best lift for meeting someone new, being the largest and longest lift on the mountain. Last week I rode the lifts with an independent young girl tackling the "back country", an ex-CIA agent, a couple of reckless teens, a family from Germany, and a veteran Mountain Manager, who all had amazing stories to share.
Next time your on the lift - say hi to the people you're with!
