Whether you are looking for a winter ski vacation or a mountain summer vacation, your search is over.
Skiing at Big Sky is no less than awesome. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a 'blast the A-Z chutes' double black diamond expert, there are hundreds and hundreds of the ~5,500 acres of skiable terrain for every level. In fact, it is challenging (not possible???) for even the the most accomplished skier to ski the entire mountain in 5 days of the 9 am-4 pm skiing. You can even elect to ski two mountains on one ticket as the adjacent resort, Moonlight Basin, has joined with Big Sky to offer a combined ticket providing you with the 'Biggest Skiing in America' lift ticket. With the combined ticket, you can access 5,532 skiable acres and endless ways to navigate 4,350 feet of vertical drop -- the largest skiable terrain in the US.
The condo is LITERALLY ski in, ski out. No need to eat lunch on the mountain. You ski to the back door, pop off your skis and go in for lunch. Seventy paces to the cat walk, clip on your skis and ski down to the Ram Charger or Swift Current lift and off you go.
At the end of the day, ski to the back door, pop off your skis, place them in the locked ski closet on the back porch, take off your boots, and place them on one of the 8 wall mounted boot dryers and then enter the condo to rest your tired legs!!!
The Big Sky Ski School offers superb lessons (speaking from practical experience), and they have day care facilities as well.
For the non-skier there is snow shoeing, sledding, Zip Line (through the trees or over the Mountain Base area), full spa facilities, fishing, and the list goes on and on.
Also -- for those who have problems with altitude sickness, you sleep at ~7500 ft, which MARKEDLY minimizes-eliminates the symptoms.
Summer time has limitless opportunities for outside activities: hiking, downhill-cross country biking (best yet -- the bikes and you ASCEND on the ski lift !!!!), the ropes course, through the trees zipline or try the zipline over the base of the Mountain Village area, horseback riding, rafting, fly fishing and the list goes on and on. Most summer visitors spend at least 1-2 days visiting Yellowstone by day trip (we are an hour north of the West Entrance).
AN OVERVIEW OF OUR HOME:
Our home has 4 bedrooms that easily accommodates two families.
It is on three levels with a bath on each level (two baths on the lower level).
The lower level has three bedrooms: Queen, Queen and Twin, and a bunk room with a full size lower mattress and an upper twin mattress.
The second level is the living room, dining area, kitchen, 1/2+ bath and the laundry. The kitchen has every utensil and pot and pan you will need.
The third level is the master suite - queen plus 1/2+ bath.
For convenience, shop at Albertson's in Belgrade on the way up the mountain. You can fax them your grocery list, and it will be packed and ready when you arrive at the store.
Even if you are not a meat eater, be sure to try Montana Bison and anything with Huckleberries in it. Great restaurants are within walking distance. Our favorite is The Cabin -- literally 40 steps from the front door.
Big Sky hosts many conferences each year. If you want to combine business and pleasure as well as bring the family, we are walking distance (~125 -150 yards) to the conference center.

We came to Big Sky solely because the kids skied free -- we walked out with a mortgage!!!!
mark purchased this chalet in 2007
We went to various ski resorts over the years -- wherever we could get the kids to ski free. In 2006, it was Big Sky's turn as kids 10 and under skied free -- we went home with a house!
The terrain, the vistas, the snow, the ambiance, the beauty, and the phenomenal skiing, were THE sales pitch. No matter were one is, which side of the mountain one in on, which trail one is skiing, or in which direction one is facing, the views are simply fantastic!!!
Big Sky is NOT much harder to get to than the Colorado and Utah resorts - there are direct flights from 14 cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Los Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Newark, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Francisco and Seattle.
From the time we board our plane in Atlanta, until we walk in the door (including the stop at the Albertsons in Belgrade [remember to fax in your order]) -- 7 hours door to door
What a gem.
The snow is as good as anywhere, there are no lift lines (8 years and counting, the longest we have had to wait is 4-5 minutes (Spring Break), and usually, we ski onto the chair), the terrain is extremely variable, challenging and gorgeous. With over 250 runs (yes, 250 !!!!) -- there is no such thing as being bored of a run -- green, blue, black or double black
The airport is an hour or so away, and in the winter you do not need a car. Limo shuttle services are extremely convenient and are similar to winter auto rental rates.
With several restaurants in walking distance (50 paces to less than 150 yards), and several that are outside of walking distance providing shuttle services, a winter auto rental is not needed.
There is a local Big Sky bus service as well -- it takes you into the 'Meadow Village' area, where several other restaurants, lunch diners, stores and even a movie theater and ice skating rink are located.
You are able to skip the I-70, gripping the steering wheel drive and delays through the Eisenhower Tunnel, and instead, have a peaceful, gorgeous, RELIABLE and easy 60-75 minute drive along the Gallatin River (huge smile).
The unit was a in a great location, nice furnishings and great hot tub. We had a great time skiing in big sky with a day trip into Yellowstone.
We love this place, the description is accurate, ski in-ski out. Great place for family to gather, share meals and relax in the hot tub but large enough with personal spaces. There is no reason to leave the condo but it is walking distance to all the Big Sky Resort shops, restraunts and bars. The property is clean, well maintained and nicely appointed with everything you will need from kitchen to bedroom and bath. The owner is great to work with and we would like to rent the property again when we return to Big Sky and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great place to rent. Thank You for letting us stay in your home!
This condo in Big Sky was more than we could ask for. We went in the summer and was amazed at how much there was to do on the mountain. We walked to the zip line, frisbee golf, rock climbing, and restaurants. I can't wait to go back in the summer when we can ski in and out.
This condo was beautifully decorated and had everything and more that we needed. The variety and number of cooking utensils made cooking a breeze. Beds were so comfortable and the condo was CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants first class accommodations at an affordable price!
We had a great stay at a great ski-in, ski-out condo! Everything went as planned and as promised. We plan on staying again.
Made a great memory for our family. Owner was great to deal with, home was nice and worked well for our group- 5 adults 3 kids. House could definitely hold more people comfortably. Hot tub room was a nice deal after a long day on the mountain. We will definitely go back!
Not only is this home as close as it gets, it's also very spacious and in great condition with super owners!
-Awesome ski-in/ski-out convenience (beginners will need to walk a bit).
-Very clean....brand new condition linens.
-Everything in solid working order.
-Fantastic communication with Mark.
-Keep your car in the garage and forget about it.
This perfect ski-in/ski-out location can easily handle the occupancy limit in every way. Plenty of bed and bathroom space and the kitchen is set up for VERY large meals with everything you can think of. We had EVERY meal here and never wanted for any sort of cooking utensil or tool.
The hot tub and wood burning fire really added to the experience.
Next time we go to big sky with a larger group, we hope Mark's place will be available because it is a PERFECT location, in great shape with easy, easy transacation and arrival/departure aspects.
Looking forward to another stay here, for sure!!!
