Whether you’re closing the career chapter of your life and looking for a luxury retirement community, or a change of scenery as you grow your career, Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana has a lot to offer.
Why Yellowstone Club is One of the Best Places to Live in Montana
Outdoor Activities in Yellowstone Club Montana
With access to one of the largest national parks in the U.S., access to private skiing, and year-round recreation, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities to choose from.
For skiers, a 5-mile stretch of Yellowstone Club shares a border with Big Sky ski, tying several lifts and ski runs directly into Big Sky Resort’s lift system. While on the lift, take in the surrounding 250,000 acres of the Gallatin National Forest.
It couldn’t be called resort living without a private golf course and residential club, could it? So, in addition to ski slopes, Yellowstone Club offers both. And, if you’re looking for a little variety, the Rocky Mountain Ski and Golf Club in eastern Madison County is a nearby option as well.
If the skiing, hiking and golf don’t appeal to you, maybe the opportunities for relaxation and rejuvenation are more your pace. Either way, here are some other reasons to consider making The Yellowstone Club your luxury retirement community, or resort community, of choice.
