Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We picked up some Swix items we had been eyeing for some time, on a great end of season sale. The people in the shop were very nice.

The staff inaccurately reports conditions on the trails. The shop does not offer the same high quality Nordic gear it once did. For this go to Gallatin Alpine Sports instead.

My husband and I rented skis at LMR's Nordic center before Christmas. We were shocked by the poor adherence to COVID guidelines. Employees at register did not have plastic guards and did not adhere to 6-feet guidance, customers were allowed in without masks, employees got extremely close to customers, the tight space got very crowded and no limits were set to the number of customers allowed inside, and a group of 6 employees were hanging out in a very small office, within 1 feet from each other, without masks. It felt extremely lackadaisical and none of the employees seemed to feel like COVID protections were important. We are so relieved we did not stay here as guests. For what it's worth, Crosscut--the non-profit Nordic center outside Bozeman--is doing an incredible job with COVID protections and is taking things much more seriously.

We had a great time cross country skiing at Lone Mountain Ranch. The staff was very friendly and helpful in getting us set up with the right rental equipment and showing us which trails on the map we should do. The equipment was well maintained. The trails were groomed well but could have benefited from slightly better signage. We had so much fun skiing and enjoying the beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

Our exchange student, who is from Italy, is a cross country skier so we took her here to enjoy the trails, and enjoy she did! She positively raved about how well marked and groomed the trails were and she just loved the scenery. The staff here was so friendly and attentive, everyone we encountered was just great. The price for a day of skiing with rental was just 35 dollars, for the experience of this fine operation it's location amd over 80km of groomed trails of all levels, it can't be beat. Next time I head this way I will try and get a room or cabin here, if they are as good as the outdoor shop, it will be phenomenal!

We spent ten days in Big Sky and used the Lone Mountain Ranch cross country skiing and snowshoe trails each day. The cross country trails were well groomed each day and
trails on the Big Sky Golf Course are excellent for beginner and individuals not quite ready for the intermediate level trails. The snowshoe trails were well marked and on terrain that is an excellent mix of flat, rolling and hills. If you like to cross country skiing and snowshoeing or just want to try it then these sports you will find the Lone Mountain Ranch staff very accommodating.

Sara took me on a challenging but beautiful horse trail. My horse, Cash, was terrific. Sara's skill and friendliness complemented the gorgeous surroundings. I highly recommend Lone Mountain Ranch.

I was just at Lone Mountain for the day as a day off from riding the lifts at Big Sky. The trails were immaculately groomed, but, while my friends on the snowshoe trail saw quite a bit of wildlife I didn’t see anything on the ski trails which are on the flatter terrain.

Hi There, Thank you for your review. Animal siting's are common here at the ranch but they can be quite elusive at times. When all else fails, you can always grab celery and carrots from us at the Outdoor shop and you can feed our beautiful draft horses . I hope you enjoyed our tails and we look forward to seeing you again! Ryan Kunz General Manager

The trails here are just gorgeous. Treat yourself to a day away from the crowds at Big Sky Village and come here! Ski rental is $20 a day and the trail pass is the same. Off the side of the shop is an area with coffee, tea, and mulled wine for refreshment during or after your day.
