Big Sky Resort released an update yesterday that access to the Lone Peak Tram will be a little bit different next season.

Ikon Pass, Mountain Collective, and day pass holders will not have access to the Lone Peak Tram without purchasing an additional add-on. These new measures are to decrease the wait time at the Tram.

Here’s the statement from Big Sky:

“For the 21/22 season, lift access products including lift tickets, Ikon and Mountain Collective passes, and select Big Sky Resort season passes will no longer have Tram access included as part of their base product. Tram access will now be offered as a day-of purchase at the Tram, or through a season-long Tram Access Packs that will offer guests a limited number of days to be used any day of the season.

Ultimately, this quality versus quantity approach is a major shift in how we sell and manage access to our Tram. Our goal is to improve the guest experience and get the Tram line back to 30 minutes on average consistently. This requires strategic changes to make this a reality. The Lone Peak experience is like no other in North America, and we want to ensure a quality experience for all guests.”

Looks like Big Sky is following resorts such as Arapahoe Basin and Powder Mountain in their efforts to decrease crowding at the resort, and to preserve the skiing experience.

The only pass with unlimited Tram access is Big Sky’s Gold Pass that costs $1,899 for adults, or a Double Black Pass that grants 10 days of access on the Lone Peak tram for $1,449.

Are you excited that wait times will decrease, or bummed that the new measure will price-out many guests from experiencing the Tram?
