Montage International and CrossHarbor Capital Partners have broken ground on Montage Big Sky, a $400m, ultra-luxury resort in Montana, US, which is set to open in 2021.
Montage International owns the brand, Montage Hotels & Resorts.
Hart Howerton, Brayton Hughes and EDG of San Francisco have designed Montage Big Sky, which is located within Big Sky’s 3,530-acre Spanish Peaks enclave.
The resort is located less than one hour from the Bozeman-Yellowstone International Airport and 45 minutes from Yellowstone National Park, and will serve as the year-round basecamp for travellers to the Greater Yellowstone area.
The Montage Big Sky design has been inspired by the natural setting and will feature a palette of materials such as regional woods and stones.
The resort will consist of 150 guestrooms and suites and 39 Montage Residences. It will also offer several amenities, including a three-meal restaurant, lobby bar and lounge, market, pub and recreation room with bowling alley, indoor lap pool, family swimming pool, fitness centre, signature Spa Montage, ski lockers and skier services.
It will also feature 12,870ft² of meeting and event space in the greater Rocky Mountain region, in addition to immersive children’s programme, Paintbox.
Montage Big Sky will be located near outdoor amenities offering ski-in, ski-out access to Big Sky Resort’s 5,800 skiable acres, and Spanish Peaks Mountain Club’s 18-hole Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, hiking, mountain biking, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing trails.
The accommodations of Montage Big Sky will create a mountain paradise for luxury adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts visiting Montana and Yellowstone National Park.
Montage International founder, chairman and CEO Alan Fuerstman said: “We are proud to announce the addition of Montage Big Sky to the Montage Hotels & Resorts collection.
“The stunning natural beauty of Big Sky and ease of access to a world-class array of outdoor recreation makes this an extraordinary destination.
“With our partners at CrossHarbor, we are eager to bring an elevated, welcoming resort experience to guests and residents of this remarkable community.”
