Virtual Skiing: Thank You, Big Sky

This week’s Virtual Skiing blog doesn’t actually involve any skiing. It’s about the Big Sky community finding silver linings, spreading positivity, and coming together.

On Sunday, April 19th, in lieu of a proper closing day at Big Sky Resort, the Big Sky community celebrated in a creative way. Instead of riding a favorite lift one last time and savoring the last few lift-serviced runs, our town came together to host the Big Sky CARE-avan, a social-distancing friendly parade that zig-zagged through town, by the Big Sky Medical Center, and up to the mountain.

This community knows how to show up. Hundreds of decorated cars lined up with people in costume, making this the biggest parade in Big Sky history.

The Big Sky CARE-avan was a huge success for so many reasons. Our community raised money for Big Sky Relief, but most importantly, it gave us a reason to smile and celebrate together, even though we all stayed inside our cars.

This week in Virtual Skiing, we’re sharing some of our favorite memories from the Big Sky CARE-avan.

Small town, big hearts. We love you, Big Sky.

“Don’t tell me this town ain’t got no heart!”
