Big Sky Resort, deep in the Yellowstone Rockies, is not only the largest ski resort in the United States by skiiable area (5800 acres), but also has the largest vertical at 4346'. Our 3D map of Big Sky includes every run, from Hanging Valley on the extreme West, through the base of Shedhorn lift and Deep South trail on the South, through Grizzly and the Lone Moose lift on the East, and up to Cascade Lift and Beehive Basin on the North. Enjoy this detailed relief map in your mountain-side chalet or your apartment in the city---wherever you want to be reminded of Big Sky.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here
