Northern Rockies

Finding Freedom Off Lone Peak

Ski.com Dream Job Hires Ben Saheb and Celia Miller look back on a week of ‘hard’ work at Big Sky Resort.

Upon arriving at Big Sky Resort, something happens. The air is fresher, the skies are bigger, and the slopes are some of the most dramatic in North America. The scenery, the culture, and the people who call this place home combine to inspire a feeling of freedom that is specific to Montana.

From January 13 to 18, 2020, Ben Saheb and Celia Miller were hired for The Ski.com Dream Job to undertake the “biggest skiing in North America,” which includes some 5,850 acres and 4,350 feet of vertical. Don’t be intimidated; they found plenty of silky smooth groomers as well.

Between ripping big mountain lines and enjoying first-class dining, here are just a few of Ben and Celia’s most memorable moments from their week on the Dream Job.
