The photo above feels a little like our Hill logo and few places feel more “long view” than Big Sky. While in Montana we shared ideas and fellowship with fiduciary advisors like HIG, and Matt even won a best-dressed contest for his ski outfit (though I never saw him on the slopes because he spent most of his time on a green run called The Pacifier:).
