One&Only Moonlight Basin is designed by renowned architect, Olson Kundig. The resort and residences will comprise 73 guest rooms and suites in the main lodge, 19 villas, a separate ski lodge, and a Chenot Spa and cutting-edge fitness centre will feature both indoor and outdoor spaces. In addition, the resort will introduce the first community of One&Only Private Homes in the United States, offering 62 private residences.
The resort will offer activities from hiking, mountain biking horseback riding and fly fishing, to snowshoeing, Alpine and Nordic skiing, dogsledding, and snowmobiling. As with all One&Only properties, the resort will offer innovative programs for families with children, along with adults-only experiences.
Located between Lone Peak and the Spanish Peaks – about an hour away from Yellowstone National Park – this new, secluded One&Only resort will showcase Montana’s mountains, scenery, and abundant wildlife, while providing every modern amenity, making the remote retreat a truly exclusive experience. One&Only Moonlight Basin will be connected by gondola to Big Sky’s world-class skiing with over 2,350 skiable hectares, and will provide access to mountain golf courses, and limitless outdoor opportunities.
The closest airport gateway will be Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, about an hour’s drive away.

“At Moonlight Basin, Lone Mountain Land Company has built a mountain destination that showcases the natural beauty of Montana’s extensive, dramatic landscapes, and I am delighted to introduce One&Only in this unrivalled destination,” Zuber added.
