BOZEMAN -

It is a big weekend at Big Sky Resort.

Not only is the resort celebrating its 40th anniversary, but it's also Military Appreciation Weekend.

Active duty and retired veterans can ski or snowboard for free when they show their military identification.

Military personnel and their families also will receive discounts on lodging, lessons and equipment rentals.

Resort officials say it is a way to give back.

"We wanted to show our appreciation for the Montana military men and women that serve our country that have to be away from Montana," said Sheila Chapman, Big Sky Resort spokeswoman. "We want to bring them back outdoors."

The following weekend is Educators Appreciation weekend at the resort.

Teachers will be offered similar discounts as the veterans will see this weekend.
