Quick history of Big Sky, Montana and Big Sky’s real estate market: Two years prior to retiring from NBC in 1970, Chet Huntley (remember NBC’s Huntley-Brinkley Report?) imagined the SW Montana community of Big Sky.
In an effort to develop the nascent town, Huntley created Big Sky, Incorporated, believing Big Sky, Inc., with a focus on skiing development, real estate and commercial development, would invigorate the economy of Montana for future generations.
$20 Million Initial Financial Support from American Corporations to Establish Big Sky, Montana
Drawing from the coffers of Burlington Northern Railroad, Chrysler Realty, General Electric Pension Fund, and Montana Power, Huntley hoped they and others would help develop business infrastructure and promote Big Sky, Montana.
Huntley applied for financial assistance from the State of Montana,the US Federal Government, and individual Congressional members. Flying the state, he pitched his idea to small town farmers and ranchers.
Through investors, he acquired approximately 11,000 acres to satisfy the land needs of a full-fledged Big Sky ski resort and year-round recreation center on the West Fork of the Gallatin River.
Today, because of the success of Huntley’s dream, the Community of Big Sky has an Arnold Palmer-designed golf course; the Meadow Village, Big Sky Town Center, and the Yellowstone Club; an air strip; tennis courts and shooting range; indoor swimming pools; a Montana dude ranch; and, of course Big Sky’s world-famous Resort, specializing in Big Sky skiing and snowboarding.
