Ranch. Ski. Vacation.<br /> (Why Not Experience It All?)<br /> Glide out from your comfortable log cabin to access over 85<br /> kilometers of groomed cross-country ski trails. Ski with your<br /> guide among bison and steaming geysers in nearby Yellowstone<br /> Park, or carve the cold smoke powder at Big Sky Ski Resort<br /> and Moonlight Basin just down the road. Enjoy a twilight sleigh<br /> ride, or just kick back in front of the fireplace in a historic<br /> guest ranch setting, where friendly service and superb cuisine<br /> greets you at day’s end. It’s all right here for you—and you<br /> won’t find a ski vacation like this anywhere else. www.LoneMountainRanc<a title="December 2011 page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/1dba4862?page=1"> DEC 2011 VOL 31.2 THE FINE ART OF SKIING THE FI</a> <a title="December 2011 page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/1dba4862?page=2"> Montana.
