After a few days burning the thighs at Big Sky, Moonlight Basin is a great choice for a bit more mellow of a day. While the excellent glades and Lone Creek Gully provide worthwhile challenges, most of this mountain lends itself to a more laid-back kind of day. Of course, if you're looking for adventure, a short hike will bring you to a ridgeline riddled with chutes and steeps.
