Saddle Ridge townhome description

Our story started with buying a used SUV, the Green Moose, to use while skiing. We then fell in love with Big Sky; it is breathtakingly beautiful with vast skiing terrain (Biggest Skiing in America 5,512 acres) and summer activities galore. The resort has a wide variety of terrain for all skill levels, frequent powder days, and short lift lines—even during holiday breaks! So we purchased our dream 2200 sq ft., three bedroom townhome and now have a place to park the Green Moose SUV! The Saddle Ridge Townhome is perfectly situated right on the ski slope close to Moonlight Lodge (true ski-in, ski-out) and offers a sweeping view of Big Sky. Your “vacation is on” as we can offer both - an amazing home and an 8 passenger GMC Suburban to use for FREE (up to 200 miles and $0.10 / mile thereafter) while touring Montana. Of course you don’t need the vehicle to ski as we are located literally right on the ski slope. You simply put on your skis and ski down to the Pony Express lift. When the day is over or you just want a hot chocolate break, you can ski back to the condo. It couldn’t be easier!

The townhouse has three spacious bedrooms, three and a half baths and offers comfort and fine amenities; fluffy towels and comfortable beds. You can sink into the living room sofa and chairs, be warmed by the fireplace, and watch your favorite programs on Direct TV, Blu-Ray, or DVD. If that’s not enough, you can use our Chromecast to stream videos off your Netflix, Hulu Plus, or HBO Go accounts using our free, full condo WiFi internet. We have a full condo speaker system connected to the receiver in the living room and cords to connect up your smartphone or MP3 player. So you can listen to music and enjoy the evening while the kids play games on our Xbox and Xbox 360. We have a large library of movies, video games, and books. A fully (and we mean fully) equipped kitchen and pantry rounds out a great experience. There are dramatic views of the mountains from all windows. After an exhausting day of skiing or hiking you can soak in the outdoor hot tub and view Lone Peak Mountain – or the amazing starry night! A large deck off the dining area can be enjoyed at any time, especially for that family meal during the balmy summer months or a mid-morning coffee chat with your friends!

Then what about summer you ask? Well, Yellowstone Park is 45 minutes away and home to some of the most breathtaking and beautiful natural wonders, including mud volcanoes, hot springs, steam vents, and rivers. There is trout fishing in the Big Sky Valley, white water rafting and hiking out your back door. You will share your adventure with moose, elk and an occasional black bear. Bozeman is 45 minutes away and is the home of Montana State University which hosts The Museum of the Rockies. It has an amazing dinosaur exhibit and Jack Horner, university museum paleontologist was adviser to Jurassic Park!

The SUV, fondly known as The Green Moose, is a 1998 Suburban. It sports old world luxury with heated leather seats, comfortable seating for 8, front and rear passenger heat and AC controls, clean interior and enough room to pack a great picnic lunch and then some on your sightseeing excursions. The engine is completely rebuilt, new tires, and cruise control. This is available for no extra charge (200 miles per week max) and the gas tank needs to be full when you leave. If you wish to use over 200 miles per week, the charge will be $0.10 per mile over the 200 mile max limit. Eligible drivers only. While use of the vehicle is free under 200 miles, we do require that you sign a vehicle rental agreement and furnish a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance. If you wish to use the vehicle, please let us know ASAP and at least 1 month prior to arrival.

Keywords: Phenomenal mountain views from every window best describe this incredible and luxurious ski in and ski out townhouse. And we offer The Green Moose (our SUV) to use!
