After spending a year with the Alaskan wildlife, LaRell and her husband Jim returned home to Montana and their previous harmonious life. With their daughter wrapping up her senior year at Montana State University, Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Tetons calling to them, Big Sky and the Madison Mountain Range were a natural place for them to land.
LaRell brings over 20 years of hospitality experience to our team having worked as the Regional Director of Operations for 8 hotels in Alaska, a General Manager, and a Director of Sales and Marketing for several hotel groups in the Billings, MT area.
Although LaRell is a fair-weather fan of everything, she is looking forward to experiencing all the activities Big Sky has to offer. During the summer season, she can’t wait to take in the Montana scenery from the back of Jim’s Harley, she is also hoping to find a secluded lake to practice her newfound love of paddle boarding. While she eagerly exclaims she’ll try anything once, twice if she really likes it, LaRell is secretly hoping that the phrase “there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing” is true.
Travel Tip: Enjoy the beauty Big Sky offers and try something new! There are many options year-round including rafting, zipline, fly fishing, hiking, skiing, soak it all in. Check out our favorite winter and summer activities!
Favorite Big Sky Activity: If you traveling into town for PBR weekend, watching as they fly the American Flag and sing the national anthem with all the riders in the ring...this is something not to miss.
