About Mike Bann

Marty and Zenalou Bennis took their first ski lessons at age 40 and 38 at a small ski area in Minnesota, along with our four sons, Gregory, Jeffery, Daniel and Tom ages 9 to 15. At the end of the lesson, the children disappeared, while Marty and Zenalou tried over and over to conquer the bunny slope. Three hours later, the boys reappeared astounded that we were still struggling to hang onto the same slope and announced, “we’ve been all over already.” OK. From that day in 1970 to this we have loved the sport, and concluded that it is the finest of all family sports. All ages and abilities can ski where they like and join the family at days end, to share and laugh at the fun and mishaps. We always filled our vehicle, first a station wagon, and later a motor home, with as many of the children’s friends as we could fit, most of whom still ski.

Mike Bann purchased this house in 1995

Why Mike Bann chose Big Sky

After years of skiing in many areas of the west Marty and Zenalou found Big Sky, MT in March before it opened the following December. A few condominiums had been built in Meadow Village, and there was one left, which Chet Huntley assured us we needed. We agreed and became proud owners of a two bedroom Silverbow Condo. We eventually sold it, and over time, owned three different condo’s on the mountain. Then one cold day with a blizzard raging, we decided to check out an ideally located, partially finished, home on Low Dog Road, and fell in love. Finishing our new home took the summer of 1995. We named it Cliffhanger, celebrated it’s Grand Opening over Christmas and it has been loved and enjoyed by our children, grandchildren and many friends, both summer and winter, ever since.

What makes this house unique

Staying at Cliffhanger is a feast for the eyes. The beauty of the surrounding area refreshes ones spirit. Watching the snow fall, then marvel over the sculptures it creates. A warm crackling fire, a game of cards, working one of the ever present puzzles, listening to a CD, watching a video, or TV. Soaking in the outdoor under cover hot tub. Laughing and reliving our day with family and friends while sitting at the welcoming kitchen counter. Games for the children. It’s a special time. In summer, we have watched the bears stroll down the road, a mother moose come down out of the forest with her wobbly legged baby who could barely stay upright, but followed her bravely down to the creek. Deer are often present, the mountain birds and busy squirrels who chewed the opening in the bird house to the right size and now it’s their home. The wild flowers seem like God’s decorations. We open the windows and listen to the West Fork of the Gallatin as it makes it’s way to the river. Sightseeing the area always seems new, and we never tire of it.

What a wonderful time! The house was just what our group needed as it provided beds for each of the guys in the team. Very roomy, very clean and very comfortable. All the amenities you could ask for. Even though it got down to -47 Thursday morning, we had a great time. The view from this house is breathtaking! Easy to ski in and ski out. We would highly recommend this house to anyone who is going to Big Sky. We will definitely stay here again!!! Thanks.

Beautiful house, beautiful location, beautiful furnishings and accessories. The house easily accommodated our annual trip for eight well aged, unrelated males. We used the kitchen utensils, the hot tub, the recorded tapes and the air drier for ski boots. With people leaving and returning from skiing at different times, the ski-in ski-out location was great. The decorating is very fitting for the location. Can't say enough good things.

Warm and Wonderful Home!

Our family of 8 (6 children ages 11-20) felt at home as soon as we arrived at Cliffhanger. The layout and size of the rooms is even better than depicted in the pictures. The house is clean, very well stocked and in a great location. The owners were incredibly helpful before and during our stay. We truly enjoyed our Christmas and New Year's holidays in Big Sky and would definitely recommend this property. We hope to be back soon!

Cliffhanger is the place to stay in Big Sky

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Cliffhanger home for our annual guys ski weekend. The home was beautiful and the location was fantastic. As long as there's clean snow on the road, it's an easy ski down the road to the Thunder Chair lift. If the road is bare, it's a short walk to the Poma Lift. You can ski in to the home (well directly across the street, but come on, that's as ski in as it gets). The pictures are spot on. The home is beautiful and the wood burning fire place is a great treat each night as you try to rest your sore legs. The home is clean and well maintained. The hot tub is spacious and modern. We really enjoyed having a private hot tub. One of the best hidden features of renting the Cliffhanger is the advice provided by the owner. He encouraged our questions and it was like having our own personal concierge.

The views from the living room literally take your breath away, especially with the sun rising and casting a beautiful pink glow on Lone Peak. I've been fortunate enough to stay at Cliffhanger both winter and summer. YES, the home literally hangs on the cliff and, YES, ski in and ski out. I am an average skier and I had no trouble getting to and from the ski hills. The home is more than comfortable for 4-5 couples. The spacious kitchen and living room host many adults very comfortably. Walking to the Mountain Village is always fun and I've never seen fireworks quite like those in the valley of Lone Mountain on the 4th of July. This is truly a unique, spacious, beautiful, and immaculately kept home. You will not regret your visit to Cliffhanger.
