Space 139 m²
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

1 Queen Suite, 1 Bunkroom -2 Full/2 Twin, 2 fold-out , 2 full bathrooms.Sleeps 6

We fell in love when we saw the view of Big Sky Resort's spectacular Lone Peak, which is enjoyed from the Master Bedroom Suite, Living Room and Outdoor Deck. Combine that with the in-unit hot tub room, fireplace, plenty of space, lodgepole pine beam work and one of the best Mountains in the Rockies convinced us that we want to hang our hat here.

Slope side often requires a lot of walking, is noisy, and comes at a premium price. We're only a half mile away on the free shuttle. Take our elevator down to the heated indoor garage, and a few steps out the door you can board the free shuttle that takes you right to the Big Sky Resort entrance.

The large 'L' shaped Living Room, Dining Room, TV/Den area gives everyone space to spread out with couches, recliners and good reading lights. Or for some private time escape to the peaceful sun room for a nap, or use the desk to set-up your lap-top. Kitchen was rennovated in 2017 with all new appliances.

Full renovated 2016 kitchen with new appliances, laundry, internet, HD Smart TV/Blue Ray DVD/CD/VCR surround system, firewood, and a boot & glove dryer-handles 6 pair of each at once.

About Brett

I'm from a northeast skiing family. My parents met through a ski club my Dad was president of, and started me on skis at the age of 3 at Whiteface, a NY Adirondack mountain that hosted the 1980 Olympic Alpine events. This great mountain, with its 3,200 vertical drop, is where I learned to ski every type of condition, in all forms of extreme weather.

After college I got into exploring new ski areas, and started tallying all the ones I had been to. According to my Excel list I've been to 126 ski areas so far.

I have been to most major resorts throughout North America, and have started ticking off some of the more exotic ones on my bucket list in South America, New Zealand and Europe. I still enjoy the small family run operations too. For me, its just about being outside gliding down a mountain. I don't need fancy resort infrastructure and perfect groomers to have fun. That is the beauty of starting the sport in the era I did.

With all that said, my wife and I were looking for a place out West that we could take our kids to, and spend some retirement time at. I had been to all the big name mountains prior to my first visit to Big Sky which we instantly fell in love with. The mountain had every type of terrain: from the double black diamonds I enjoy now, to the type of terrain I will enjoy in my senior years. The lifts were old salvaged lifts from other ski areas. That was okay. We saw the potential and saw that Boyne was pumping money into the resort, so we bought our place in 1991, and haven't looked back since. With most lifts replaced by high speed detachables, new lodges, and the tram to the top, this area rocks.

Throughout the years we've been slowly fixing our Montana home up. In 2013 we replaced the 29 year old hot tub. In 2017 we renovated the kitchen with all new appliances completing our punch list. We have really enjoyed seeing our renters positive comments about their stay, and we will continue this labor of love to make it great for us and them.

Brett purchased this condo in 1991

First thing you will love when you get here is that you pull right up to the building, reach out your window and push the button to open the indoor heated garage. If you've ever arrived to your vacation spot in pounding snow, or pouring rain, you'll appreciate this nice luxury. Once in you'll find plenty of luggage carts (and firewood). Load-up and ride the elevator up two levels and it will open right across from our condo-easy. In-unit, dedicated hot tub room for your privacy is a plus. Tub is cleaned and filled with fresh water at check-in. Big Sky access is a half mile away on the free shuttle that picks-up right outside the Skycrest garage door and drops you off at the entrance. No long walks, no parking hassles. We always utilize the ski/board overnight check service during our vacation stay which is right at the base of the chairlifts. Wet ski boots and gloves...we have a dryer that can handle 6 pairs of both at once. Free wireless internet, TV/DVD/CD/VCR

Winter Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with a stunning view of Lone Peak, easily situated on the shuttle route. The rustic decor makes you feel like you’re truly in the mountains (without being too cheesy). This was our second time staying in this unit and we had another great trip - unbelievable skiing/riding, great food (Olive B’s, Montana Jack & Gallatin Riverhouse Grill), best memories. Kitchen was well equipped for the breakfasts & dinners we made. For lunch while you’re on the mountain, we chose Lone Peak Cafe at the base, the Madison Base Area (cafeteria) and who can forget the stunning experience of Black Kettle Burrito at the top of the Swift Current Lift - a burrito at 9000 feet!

Tip: after your full day of skiing, valet your skis at the base of the mountain, hop on the shuttle, and head right to the indoor hot tub!

Would highly recommend visiting Big Sky and staying in this unit!

Wonderful Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 teenagers) stayed at Brett's condo for a four-day ski excursion and couldn't have been happier. The condo was well equipped in the kitchen (plenty of pots and pans that were clean and maintained as I have stayed elsewhere and that was not the case) as well as for skiing (boot warmers). The rooms were perfect - each daughter had her own bunk bed. Everything in the condo was well maintained and clean. The laundry is located across from the unit and Brett provided laundry detergent so we took advantage of that one night. The view was spectacular. The shuttle was very convenient and we took that to/from Big Sky with no problem. I even left my head warmer on the shuttle and found it the next day when the same shuttle drove us home. We loved the fireplace and had a warm fire going every night. If we head back to Big Sky, we will definitely stay there again.

Great location. Great view. Needs a king size bed in the master bedroom.

  • 4 of 5

The owner is very organized and was very helpful on assisting our vacation stay in the big sky area. Great access to just about anywhere. Great view of the mountain. The only drawback is that the master bedroom has a full-size bed. A king bed would have been nice.

Owner's Response: Its actually a queen size bed in the master bedroom which is adequate for two tall adults. The lower two beds in the bunkrooms are fulls with twins up top.

Car: recommended

Ideally located in the Big Sky Mountain Village on the free shuttle loop-a half mile from Big Sky Resort. Just far enough away to give us the most spectacular view of Big Sky and Lake Levinsky from this condo's elevated perch. We're ten minutes from the golf course, and white water rafting & fishing on the Blue Ribbon Gallatin River. Bozeman/Yellowstone Airport are an 1:10h away. Yellowstone Park's West Yellowstone entrance is 50 minutes away. We are just around the corner from the popular Beehive Basin hiking trail. There are many excellent restaurant and bar choices in the Big Sky Mountain Village as well as the Meadow Village and Canyon areas where vehicles are recommended. Renters love how easy it is to come and go from the heated indoor parking garage accessed a few steps away from the elevator; directly across from our front door.
