The Big Sky Owners Association is Big Sky's largest and oldest homeowner's association. With over 2,300 properties encompassing over 8,000 acres the Association spans across both Gallatin and Madison Counties. The BSOA is governed by an elected board of nine volunteers and supported by staff. Annual membership assessments are used to provide public services and community support including winter road maintenance, street lights, speed control, road signs, weed and pest control, open space maintenance, architectural review and landscape design, and management of compliance issues within the BSOA jurisdiction as they pertain to the governing documents.

The BSOA is working with L&L Site services to offer you curbside trash and recycling services at a discounted rate. Both L&L and the BSOA are committed to making responsible recycling easily accessible in Big Sky and as affordable as possible, however the curbside recycling will only be offered if the BSOA maintains a minimum of 42 customers who are responsible recyclers (sort their recycling from their trash properly).
The garbage cans will continue to be animal-resistant and will be regularly maintained, which should help minimize bear-human conflicts.
This is an amazing opportunity to continue the BSOA’s trajectory towards a more sustainable Big Sky. The BSOA strives to be leaders of good stewardship in the community and wants to make participation in this effort as affordable and easy as possible for the BSOA membership.
Currently the BSOA has 30 customers signed up. Please help us reach 42!

Over the past two years, the BSOA has been communicating and collaborating with local officials and community organizations in an effort to implement an emergency egress for Big Sky, as well as an evacuation plan in case of an emergency. During this time some progress has been made, however, due to the importance of emergency preparedness for the Big Sky community, the Board has decided to elevate the issue to the Governor’s Office.
