Wilson Hotel Big Sky Residence Inn opened in mid-2019 and is Big Sky’s first major hotel. With a name inspired by Wilson Peak, one of the most prominent of the Spanish Peaks overlooking Big Sky, the hotel has 129 suites, 3,000 square feet of meeting space and a Town Center location just steps from shops, restaurants and nightlife. It’s also a complimentary shuttle ride away from the ski lifts at Big Sky Resort. In addition, there is a steakhouse-style American restaurant, fitness center, outdoor heated pool and whirlpool, game room and lobby bar showcasing local brews on tap and craft cocktails unique to the region.

The Wilson’s brick exterior takes inspiration from historic architecture found throughout Montana, while its rustic-modern interior evokes a mountain setting and includes a central fireplace. Owned by Lone Mountain Land Company and managed by Urgo Hotels & Resorts, the hotel is led by a team of veteran hospitality executives, including General Manager Mandy Hotovy, Assistant General Manager Minsun Robillard and Director of Sales Dan Moller.

Kevin Hubschmann is a New Jersey-based comedian who has been making people laugh for most of his life. But after not finding as many opportunities to perform live even before the pandemic, he started hosting popup comedy shows in New York City in 2019 under the business name Laugh.Events (pronounced Laugh Dot Events).

 

In the wake of a total global crisis, the Meet Minneapolis team got to work. 

Connecting the Community

Last summer, as communities across the state reeled, the CVB launched the “We Need Us!” campaign as a rally cry and reminder on the importance of supporting the businesses that make Minneapolis so unique.

“It really came from this question of, ‘How can we support our community that’s hurting in so many ways and make locals feel comfortable making those choices?’” says senior vice president of destination branding & strategy Courtney Ries.
