The Rut Scenic Lift Ticket 2023

Enjoy a day of scenic lift rides on Swift Current 6, Ramcharger 8, and Explorer (Uphill only on the Explorer Lift). Your ticket purchase gives you access to ride both of our lifts as many times as you wish throughout the day. |

Big Sky's scenic lift ride provides our summer visitors with a bird's eye view of the surrounding mountains. There are many trails on the mountain and around the area to enjoy. Passes or tickets are required for scenic chairlift access.

For Summer 2023, scenic lift access is scheduled from 10 a.m. - 4:40 p.m. daily on Ramcharger 8, Swift Current 6, and Explorer. Please note that while Ramcharger 8 and Swift Current 6 can be ridden up and down, Explorer can only be ridden uphill. From Explorer, we recommend taking the mile-long Huckleberry trail down the mountain. Construction zones will be marked on-resort and updates throughout the season will be posted on our website.

The health and safety of our guests, employees, and community is our highest priority. Please take a moment to review our Resort Safety Policies page so you can best prepare for a safe and enjoyable visit.
