BOZEMAN — The Big Sky Resort is set to receive $150 million in improvements as part of a 10-year plan for the ski area and surrounding community.

Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports the resort’s parent company Boyne Resorts made the announcement Wednesday. The plan includes adding a 10-person gondola, making lift upgrades as well as incorporating night skiing and building a new hotel complex.

The changes to the mountain’s infrastructure come as the resort plans to handle 650,000 annual visitors predicted in 2025.

The resort already investment $9 million earlier this year on two lifts, which are expected to open in time for Thanksgiving weekend.

Boyne Resorts President Stephen Kircher says Big Sky has added $10 to $15 million in annual earnings since its 2013 merger with Moonlight Basin and Spanish Peaks.
