Where is the nearest airport to Big Sky?

Should we be concerned about bears?
Bears are part of the beauty of Montana. You should be "bear aware" while hiking and enjoying the outdoors. The best defense against a bear attack on a hike is to bring a chatty hiker (bears are usually scared off by human voices). Bear spray should be carried with you on all hikes.

The west entrance of the park is less than an hour's drive. As an eagle flies, the park itself is just 15 miles from Big Sky.
