A Sleeping Giant awakes

Operational since the late-1930s, but closed until recently, Northwest Wyoming's Sleeping Giant Mountain Resort reopened this season after a series of improvements -- a new lift, a base lodge and a terrain park designed by former Big Sky park manager Joe Pope among them. And, if you thought you'd never again see a full-day lift ticket for less then $30, look no further than this backwoods mountain.
