Buck’s T-4 Annual Christmas Party

Recently, Buck’s T-4 helped celebrate the holidays with our annual community Christmas party. Like years past the event was a big hit. It was a good chance for Buck’s kitchen to showcase some of their delicious and mouthwatering creations. Guests were able to sample some of the delectable treats off Buck’s  newly launched pub menu, like the Cajun Pork Chop Sammie. Those were a quick favorite and disappeared straight away. And the house made bison and pork sausages that came fresh off the grill were quick to follow suit.

Here is just a taste of the other bites offered at the party, I caution those with an empty stomach to not read on:  Oysters Rockerfeller, freshly carved roast beef served on warm pita bread with sheep dip, in house smoked salmon served with marinated cucumber on five spice flat bread, fried Szechwan mushroom wontons, roast vegetable pizza, a sampling of fine cheeses and much much more. For those with a sweet tooth we had trays of  creamy chocolate mint brownies, lemon curd tarts, eggnog custard tarts (my favorite), pecan tarts  and a selection of everyone’s favorite Christmas cookies.

And no event at Buck’s T-4 would be complete with out a taste of our award winning wine list and selection of local beers. The Christmas party was no exception with a variety of reds, white and a rose all available to be sampled as well as Lone Peak Brewery’s Nordic Blond and Steep N Deep Winter Ale draft beers.

The night was a good indicator of the busy winter season that lies ahead. All of us at Buck’s T-4 are really looking forward to having you join us in our dining rooms or lodging this winter. If you haven’t made it down to Buck’s for dinner yet or are still thinking about where to vacation this winter, come and see us. You won’ be disappointed!

And from all of us at Buck’s T-4 have a very merry Christmas!!!


Lifts Open at Big Sky – Buck’s T-4 offers KILLER Deals!

Welcome back to the Buck’s Blog. I am happy to be back writing about the Big Sky area and everything going on around here. Since the month of December brings so many events, I will try to keep my chatter to a minimum.

Big Sky Resort opened the Swift Current and Explorer lifts November 27 on Thanksgiving Day. Early season conditions exist, but that didn’t stop all the local skiers. Everybody seemed overjoyed to be back on the mountain skiing and seeing friends again. Lift tickets are $39.

I decided to take advantage of the backcountry on Thursday. It was a beautiful sunny day, and I couldn’t pass up an invitation to ski Beehive Basin with some friends. We headed out early when the thermometer read only 11 degrees. It didn’t take long for the sun to warm the earth and before I knew it I was stripped down to just my thermal shirt and snow pants. We had about a 2 hour skin up to the top of the ridge between Beehive and Middle Basin. We took a fantastic run through what felt like mid-winter powder snow into Middle Basin. Then hiked back up to ski a couloir that lead us back into Beehive. We certainly earned our Thanksgiving dinners that night. I could not have asked for a more spectacular holiday.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday I skied Big Sky Resort. It was wonderful to talk to everybody on the lifts and in the bar about the skiing. I can’t tell you that I was skiing the best powder of my life, but I was having almost as much fun. The whole mountain seemed to buzz with ecstatic skiers and snowboarders just happy to be back on snow.

The free week for Big Sky Frequent Sky Card holders began Sunday, November 30 and will go through Saturday December 6, 2008. Buck’s T-4 offers $99/night for single or double occupancy for all Big Sky Frequent Sky Card holders. So if any of you don’t feel like driving back to Bozeman, Livingston, Butte, Gardiner, Bismark or any of the other surrounding areas, we invite you to be our guest! Also all winter long any Big Sky Resort lift ticket holder receives a 15% discount on lodging here at Buck’s.

Don’t feel left out if you are a Moonlight Basin skier. Moonlight Basin is scheduled to open December 12, 2008. Buck’s offers fantastic ski & stay packages for Moonlight, as low as $79 per night per person.

Here is my ‘dirtbag skier tip of the day’; If you are a college student log onto www.buckst4.comand check out some student discounts offered for both lodging and food for you at Buck’s. If you are a MSU student (or even if you are a student elsewhere) get a hold of that MSU Pocket Guide and clip the coupons for DIRT CHEAP DEALS!!!

December holds so many events in Big Sky. I personally am looking forward to attending a wine tasting with gourmet hors d’oeuvres this Friday at Buck’s. It’s only $15 per person and is a screaming deal for 6 wines paired with elegant food.

Also on Friday, December 5 it is $20 day at Big Sky Resort. This is the cheapest day to ski all season long!

The ever so popular Madrigal Dinner will be held at Buck’s on December 8, 2008. This is a holiday tradition in Big Sky. The MSU choir sings, there is a fantastic plated dinner, wasail toast and more. This is one of the more elegant events happening this December.

One of my favorite Christmas events is the Christmas Stroll around BIg Sky. Local businesses offer spectacular deal, there are activities for kids, and a beer stroll for adults. It is a great time to meet and greet friends and neighbors. I even heard a rumor that Santa will be there!!!!

Also the Chamber of Commerce’s annual holiday ball, the Boots and Belles Ball is December 13, 2008. This is a fantastic event that proves to be even better this year. Not only will there be the buffet dinner which features dishes from many local restaurants, but ’10 Foot Tall and 80 Proof’ will be playing. I can’t wait to dance by boots right off my feet! The Boots and Belles Ball will be held at Buck’s T-4.

The Buck’s T-4 Community Holiday Party is December 16, 2008. This is a fabulous event, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, cash bar and tons of Big Sky locals. I got a sneak peak at the menu and I have to tell you it looks delectable. I can’t wait. Every year is so much fun seeing friends I haven’t seen since last winter. The best part is the free food!

December 20 Big Sky Resort has a rail jam called R.U.S.T.

Buck’s T-4 offers a $99/night rate (single or double occupancy) for anybody attending any special events in Big Sky through the month of December. All the events are listed on our website

Sorry to sound so much like a marketing girl! 😉 But I just had to let everybody know what is going on this month in Big Sky.

Think snow! I will see you on the slopes.
