Big Sky Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

ateway to Yellowstone National Park. We are located 20 miles from the Park, 45 minutes from West Yellowstone, MT, and 7 miles from fly fishing the Gallatin River, a Blue Ribbon trout river.

Summer activities include:

White water rafting 10 minutes away on the Gallatin River

Zip line, twin-zip racing, downhill mountain biking, scenic chairlift rides at Big Sky Resort, 1/4 mile away.

Pristine fly-fishing on the Gallatin River, 7 miles away. Other nearby epic fly fishing rivers include the Yellowstone, and the Madison.

Hundreds of miles of hiking trails to alpine lakes, high mountain peaks, old fire look-out towers, and high meadows filled with wildflowers. Trails right out your door. Local hiking and biking trail maps available.

I escaped Washington DC ten years ago and spent two winters skiing all over the world. Having skied 50+ resorts, Big Sky was my hands down favorite. I've lived here for eight years, my first two winters as a ski instructor. Having decided to stay full-time, I started a construction consulting business and a landscaping company. And I still work as a part-time ski instructor.

Lee Griffiths purchased this condo in 2004

I used to live in DC, which has some of the worst traffic in the country. My commute could be 1-2 hours, sometimes more. When I moved to Big Sky, I wanted to be able to walk to the base area in minutes. I wanted to be 2 minutes from the closest ski lift and I wanted to be able to ski home. My neighbors are ski-in/ski-out, so I would ski down their trail, cross the street, and walk in the door.

Right out the living room window is a fantastic view of the Mt. Wilson and the Spanish Peaks range. At sunset, after the Mt Village is in the shadow of Lone Peak, the alpen-glow illuminates the Spanish Peaks.

Solid condo, close to lifts, sparse on some basics

We stayed here for a week for skiing at Big Sky, and this is a great condo. It is clean, bright, and has great access to lifts. I only have two minor things to note (and the reason this is not a five star review):

1) The lack of internet access is definitely a downside. You can buy access from 3RiversWifi, but their service is unusably slow and unreliable (and tech support not helpful). We ended up either going to the main lodge or tethering off phones to get basic email.
2) The condo is a little sparse on some basics (for example, we had to buy kitchen garbage bags as there were none, and there was nothing to help store food, such as saran wrap or foil). These little things were not a big deal, but still nice to have.

Overall, we've had a great experience here and would definitely consider coming back, especially if the condo (or we) come up with a better internet solution.
Owner's Response: Thanks for your review.
Other guests have used 3Rivers wifi with no problem, but as you said the signal can be weak. We have installed a wifi signal booster that makes the 3Rivers wifi signal stronger.
Kitchen garbage bags are in the lower level kitchen cabinets. All our guests are welcome to call us with any questions if they need help finding something or otherwise. We don't supply saran wrap or foil, but there is a convenience store 300 steps down the road.

Great ski condo

This great ski condo is right next to Big Sky Resort, about a 5 minute walk to the base area. We were able to ski back to the condo at the end of the day, which took some navigating but was easy skiing. For the 5 of us, for the money, this was half the price of the resort.

Had an extremely enjoyable vacation. This condo is located right in the middle between West Yellowstone and Bozeman in beautiful Big Sky! Super close to Big Sky Resort. Vacationed in September and were a short drive to hiking and fly fishing. Condo was very clean and comfortable, absolutely no complaints. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Our condo is as close to Big Sky Resort as you can get without paying for ski-in/ski-out.
