Welcome to the hardest 3-mile “run” you will ever complete. Over 1 km of elevation gain in less than 5 km of distance. Painfully simple. After you get to the top you have front row seats to the magnificence of southwest Montana.
A lift back down is via the Lone Peak tram. From there, VK’ers will walk a little under a mile to the top of the Swiftcurrent lift, which they can download back to the Big Sky Resort base area.
