Should we be getting excited for winter already?

Big Sky Resort is being mentioned by Powder.com as one of the nation's ski areas that are investing millions to upgrade operations. Let's just say they are going big.

Big Sky Resort is installing a new 8-seat mega lift, dubbed the Ramcharger 8, complete with bubble chairs and heated seats; the first of its kind in the world.

Skiers and snowboarders will also be able to check out the new hi-res LED screen at the bottom of the Ramcharger 8 for up-to-the-minute mountain information.

In addition to the new Ramchager lift, the double-chair Shedhorn lift will be upgraded to a high-speed quad.
