#5 of 6 in Parks in Big Sky
The Yellowstone Club, also Yellowstone Ski Resort, is a private residential club, ski resort, and golf resort located in the state of Montana, USA. The Rocky Mountain ski and golf club is located in eastern Madison County, just west of Big Sky, Montana, south of Bozeman and northwest of Yellowstone National Park.HistoryEntrepreneur Tim Blixseth purchased approximately 100,000 acres of timberland, partly in purchases from Plum Creek Timber and engaged in swaps of land with the U.S. Forest Service and the Federal Government ("Gallatin Land Exchanges"). This land swap process was enabled by two specialized acts of Congress in the 1990s. Blixseth ultimately ended up with a large amount of developable land adjacent to the Big Sky Resort in Montana. The Yellowstone Club private ski and golf community was developed by Blixseth and used as collateral for a $375 million syndicated loan where the proceeds were used for other purposes, including an effort to build an exclusive luxury vacation club based on acquiring resort properties around the world. This venture failed, Mr. Blixseth and his wife divorced and the Yellowstone Club entered bankruptcy in November 2008. During its peak season, almost 650 people are employed at the club.The club was featured on CNBC's lifestyle show High Net Worth with Tyler Mathisen.

  • Awesome place , cozy and warm You can find some fun there!!
  • Five stars because this is one of the most fun places to ride in MT. When I worked there it seemed like the goofy members stick to the lodge, lake and american spirit lifts leaving all the good pow off of mountain for the people who know what they're doing! Besides that I wish a forest fire would wipe the place out.
