Located in the pristine mountains of Big Sky, Montana, one hour’s drive from Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, the Yellowstone Club sits in the midst of a “Rocky Mountain wonderland.” The Club was created in the 1990s by a unique land swap with the U.S. Forest Service, enabled by two specialized acts of Congress. It is the world’s only private, members-only ski and golf community. 

“Nicknamed the Treasure State, Montana’s mystical landscape offers you something truly glorious throughout all four seasons…Explore over 30 miles of single-track hiking trails…Sit back with a drink in an unparalleled setting.”  

Your adventure begins onboard a Global Express aircraft, a private business jet developed by Bombardier capable of intercontinental non-stop flights. The spacious and elegant cabin can seat up to 16 passengers comfortably and is outfitted with every possible amenity. When you arrive, you’ll be housed in a five-bedroom residence with attached private baths. Three of the bedrooms have king-sized beds, while two are suitable for children with either full-sized or bunk beds. 

Once settled in at the Yellowstone Club, in addition to skiing on over 2,900 acres of powdery ski slopes, optional exceptional experiences may include: 

  • Outdoor activities that will appeal to every member of the family including snowboarding, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing and uphill travel 
  • Several on-site spas, yoga, fitness classes and sessions with personal trainers
  • Floor hockey, indoor rock climbing, arts and crafts, pool, ping pong, retro arcade games and shuffleboard 

When it comes to dining, you’ll have your choice of 16 restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The culinary high point of your visit will likely be dinner for eight at BāBā by MING TSAI, created by the famed chef and TV personality and specialist in east-west fusion cuisine. 

“The Club’s superior amenities, easy Montana charm and overwhelming natural beauty present an incomparable venue for mountain living, year-round recreation, and cherished family traditions.”  

Your week in paradise will allow you to relax and spend quality time with friends and family while experiencing the breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountains.  

This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: Don’t let it slip away!
