Spanish Peaks Montage, Big Sky


Welcome to the Montage at Big Sky construction page. This site is intended for construction-related information. Visit this page for important work updates, news alerts, feature stories, and contact information.


About the Project

In September 2018, Suffolk and the development team for the Spanish Peaks Mountain Club broke ground on this $400 million, 518,000 square-foot project. Visitors seeking adventure in Montana and Yellowstone National Park will be able to take advantage of the ultra-luxury resort’s 150 guest rooms, 39 residences, restaurant, bar, lounge, bowling alley, pool, youth programming, and Spa Montage. The facility will also boast 12,870 square feet of meeting and event space. 


For those looking to get outside, Montage Big Sky will have ski-in, ski-out access to 5,800 skiable acres at Big Sky Resort - the second largest ski resort in the United States by acreage - and access to Spanish Peaks Mountain Club’s 18-hole golf course. The resort is scheduled to open in late 2021.
