Make our ski-in/ski-out townhouse condo your home base as you experience the best Mother Nature has to offer in Big Sky Montana. Our goal is to provide our guests with a true home-away-from-home experience. We strive to make you as happy to come back to the condo at the end of the day as you were while you were skiing or rafting, hiking or biking, or doing any of the other countless outdoor activities that Southwest Montana has to offer.
Big Sky is centrally located between historic Bozeman and West Yellowstone making ours the perfect location if you want to spend most of your time enjoying the outdoors of Big Sky, but also want to spend a day or two seeing the geysers and fumaroles or visiting the Museum of the Rockies and doing some shopping down Main Street. Then come back to Big Sky for skiing or dog sledding or mountain biking or fly fishing or whitewater rafting or golf. There is also horseback riding, wildlife viewing (the Gallatin National Forest is just down the mountain), zipline, paintball, tennis, ATV riding, snowmobiling, snow shoeing and more and more...
Our highly rated home-away-from-home is located in the Big Sky Resort Mountain Village with unobstructed views of Lake Lavinsky and the Cascade mountains. Our front door is about 100 steps from the Bear Back Poma lift which is a short ride to the bottom of the Silver Knife ski run and the base area. In less than 10 minutes, you could go from the living room to sitting on the Swift Current high speed quad on your way to enjoying over 5700 skiable acres.
When you return back to our place after a day spent in the Montana outdoors, you won't be at a loss for something to do. For starters, the living room has a 46” HDTV (with actual HD programming), a Bluray home theater, streaming Netflix & Hulu Plus. Every bedroom also has its own HDTV & DVD player. All rooms have HD DirecTV with HBO, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, The Movie Channel, Encore and the Sports Pack. If you're concerned you might miss your favorite TV shows, just have one of the DVRs record them for you and watch them later from any TV.
If you took hundreds of pictures, have fun editing them on our computer with Photoshop Elements then send them to your friends back home. If video is more to your liking, get a head start on your production with Premiere Elements. Don't forget to bring your laptop, tablet or smartphone and connect to our free WiFi. We also provide a selection of board games and magazines or you can settle down in front of the fireplace to read a book and enjoy the mountain views.
The upstairs master bedroom is decorated in an Indian theme and has a queen bed, a queen sofa sleeper, a 40” HDTV, Netflix, Hulu Plus and views of Lone Peak. There is also a XBOX 360 to keep the kids occupied. The downstairs bedroom is decorated in a fisherman's theme and has a queen bed, a 32” HDTV (also with Netflix & Hulu Plus) and panoramic unobstructed views of the lake and mountains. The living room and upstairs guest bedroom offer the same views. The guest bedroom is decorated in a hunter's theme and has two twin beds, a 32” HDTV and a Playstation 3 (also with Netflix & Hulu Plus). The living room, decorated in a western skiing theme, also has a queen sofa bed.
Our kitchen is fully equipped and our washer, dryer and hot water heaters (we have two) are large capacity (a feature you'll appreciate if your group is on the big side).
Some of the extras we provide include firewood, boot dryers, Internet, computer & printer. Linens are included as well dish and dishwasher detergent, toilet paper, paper towels and tissues.
Do you have a hot tub or pool access? Day passes to the Shoshone hot tub, pool, sauna and workout room, about 1/3 mile away, are usually available at the resort for an extra charge. If you see another condo claiming free access to the Huntley Lodge hot tub & pool, ask them if their property is being managed by Boyne. If the answer is no, it's likely they don't have permission to grant you access to the Huntley and instead are hoping you'll be able to poach it without Boyne noticing. Boyne, the owner of the Huntley, does not look favorably upon that. About the Huntley pool and hot tub, apres ski it is usually very crowded.
Are you 'true' ski in - ski out? You will need to walk the approximately 100 steps to get to the poma lift, but if the roads are covered with snow, you will be able to ski back to the front door with a little bit of polling. Likewise, if the roads are snow covered, you may be able to ski to the Thunderwolf high speed quad, although the poma would be the better option.
Will we need a rental car to get around in Big Sky? We are on the free shuttle route that loops the mountain & meadow villages and the canyon. These take you to the shops and restaurants as well as the ski base area if you don't want to ride the poma lift. We are about 1/4 mile away from the main base area.
Are discounted lift tickets available? Big Sky Resort does not make discounted lift tickets available to rental by owner. About the only way to get a discounted ticket is to purchase the Sky Card before Sept 30. The Sky Card discounts $25/day of each ticket. It also offers discounts off lessons and merchandise. The Sky Card and lift tickets must be purchased directly from Big Sky Resort. Another option for discounts in general is the free Boyne Reward card. You'll earn points on lift tickets and purchases at Boyne owned stores and restaurants that can be exchanged for gift certificates. It typically works out to about a 5% savings.
