Excerpt: Connection Timeout There are at least 126 named mountains in Madison County, Montana. Big Sky is a census-designated place (CDP) in Gallatin and Madison counties in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of Montana. This unincorporated community straddles the two counties, is not considered a town, and has no town government. The primary industry of the area is tourism. Big Sky is located approximately midway between West Yellowstone and Bozeman on U.S. Route 191 and just 15 miles from the northwestern border of the Yellowstone National Park. The population was 1,221 at the 2000 census. "The Meadow" sector of the area lies in an alpine valley formed during the cretaceous period. Initially called the Gallatin Canyon Basin, the Meadow is braided with small rivers that channel mountain snow run-off. Fishing is permitted on all of these Gallatin feeders. Two "ponds" are found on the Middle Fork that bisects the Meadow. Fishing there is permitted only for those 16 and younger. Since 1993, an innovative sewer system has protected the water in the area from sewage discharge. Several agencies, such as the Blue Water Task Force, monitor the health of the rivers. The community is home to two large ski resorts that are sited in the "Mountain" sector: Big Sky Ski and Summer Resort and Moonlight Basin. Both are alpine ski and golf resorts. The combined terrain of the two resorts allows them to boast "The Biggest Skiing in America." The Club at Spanish Peaks is an exclusive private ski & golf resort that has 3 chairlifts & 13 ski runs connecting it to the Big Sky Ski Resort at the base of Big Sky's Southern Comfort lift. Another resort, Lone Mountain Ranch, is a Nordic ski and summer resort that professionally grooms over 75 kilometers of cross country skill trails. The private exclusive resort, Yellowstone Club, is located to the south and adjacent to Big Sky. Part of the community lies in the Gallatin Canyon, along the Gallatin River, a favorite for white water rafters an
