Getting Engaged in Big Sky

The sparkling new snow Big Sky received recently isn’t the only thing glistening around here lately. With no lack of stunning vistas, Big Sky has long been known as the perfect place to pop the big question in a big way.

According to Wedding Wire, nearly 1 in 5 engagements happen in December, more than in any other month. With many families gathering to spend their holidays together while enjoying the outdoor recreation Big Sky is best known for, it’s the perfect time for any couple to say “yes” to forever.

When considering asking the question, consider some of the following options in Big Sky. Perhaps you’ll choose the romantic approach with the candlelight of a Sleigh Ride Dinner at Lone Mountain Ranch. You and your love could snuggle under a fleece blanket with a canopy of stars above you, as you make your way to an amazing dinner.  You could choose the adventurous approach at the top of the Lone Peak Tram at 11, 166 ft. in elevation. (Just be sure the ring is zipped secure in the pocket of your ski jacket before heading out!) Finally, you could choose the fun approach and get your friends and family involved. Have a friend ride the chairlift in front of you with a “Will You Marry Me” sign, when you are all up in the air, have them flip the sign over the back of their seat so you can see if from your chairlift and pull out the ring. Whatever backdrop you choose, a holiday engagement in Big Sky is sure to light a fire in the heart of your loved one.

Afterwards, pop some bubbly to celebrate and maybe even enjoy a Montana ribeye next to the fireplace at one of our incredible area restaurants. Or jump in the hot tub of your rental to soak in the joys of the day.

Once the excitement of a Big Sky engagement has settled in a bit, many couples from across the country choose to return to Big Sky for a magical summer wedding, completing a lifetime of romance where the sky is the limit. Our array of stunning venues range from mountaintops to riversides, all under Lone Peak’s majestic glow.

True love can be strong in any location, but we feel the crisp, clean air and endless blue skies of Big Sky can combine to make it even stronger. But don’t take our word for it, you’ll have to visit with your sweetheart to test it out for yourselves!
