Big Sky

A seemingly innocuous day of sledding quickly turned serious when Big Sky youngster Elijah Brauer suffered a brain injury after hitting a tree. He was flown to Salt Lake for treatment, and is now back to his regular antics, but his parents want to spread the word that helmets really can save lives.

Helmets save lives

Elijah (Eli) Brauer just rode the tram and skied Liberty Bowl with his dad, Jeff. It’s an amazing feat for any seven-year-old. What makes it even more remarkable is that just three months ago young Eli was collapsed by a tree, virtually immobile and bleeding from his nostrils.

Senior Cole March pulls off a seriously modified pushup during the Feb. 2 game against Manhattan Christian.

Eyeing districts

It’s safe to say no one in the “know” when it comes to Big Horns basketball was looking forward to the games against the Manhattan Christian Eagles. One parent, who wanted to remain anonymous – said, “Maybe we’ll beat them – one of these years.”

Meet Devin Milsop.

Not So Average Jane

Big Sky locals might recognize Devin Milsop from the time when she worked at the front desk at Moonlight; as a concierge at the Summit or when she was assistant property manager for Big Sky Resort. I know her as a fun-loving, pigtail wearing, dancing-in-the-dugout catcher for the Cab Lizards, in the Big Sky Co-ed softball league.

You’ll need a pass code to access the private portion of Jack Creek Road, and 11-ish mile passage owned by Moonlight Basin that connects Big Sky and the Madison Valley.

A mutual benefit
