About Gary Kornfeld and Theresa Dupuis

We are a California family that fell in love with Montana. We enjoy sharing the bounty of Big Sky! Our kids and grandkids look forward to the endless activities available all year.

Frankly, it's hard to leave after a week of a refreshing, exhilarating, Big Sky vacation in the mountains.

Gary Kornfeld and Theresa Dupuis purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Gary Kornfeld and Theresa Dupuis chose Big Sky

We've traveled all over the world, and believe Big Sky is one of the most beautiful spots we've ever seen. Our Big Sky ski vacation is enhanced by our ski-in, ski-out location in Mountain Village's Cascade Development. The groomed ski trail runs alongside our driveway, carrying us down to the White Otter lift.

Wintertime transforms our backyard into a winter wonderland as our family and friends make snow sculptures, snow furniture and ski jumps.

Summertime brings us out for our Yellowstone National Park vacation - less than an hour away. We enjoy hiking Ousel Falls, Lava Lake and Beehive Basin. The two disk golf courses are addicting, and the zipline exhilarating!

Our entire family spends the whole day on the Gallatin and Madison World Class Fly Fishing rivers only to come back to SkyHaus exhausted, yet moments later we're playing board games or card games well into the evening. No matter how long we stay at SkyHaus, we never think it's long enough!

SkyHaus is about 1 mile from the fabulous Moonlight Basin Lodge which has several dining options, a stunning, room-sized, 4 sided fireplace, and incredible views of the ski area.

In the spring and fall, fly fishing the Gallatin and Madison rivers are a highlight. The Gallatin is about 15 minutes away, the Madison less than 1 hour. Yellowstone National Park's west entrance is about 50 miles away, and the closest to 'Old Faithful'.

What makes this chalet unique

Yellowstone National Park is so close you can easily day-trip it! Your Big Sky ski vacation is made easier by the ski in, ski out trail on our property. Very handy not to have to pack up the car with your gear and drive to the ski base area.

SkyHaus is a luxury rental and entertains easily as the open floor plan accommodates up to 14 people with ease.

The two steam showers are a favorite among the guests, who also enjoy the large private hot tub on the deck.

Private WiFi keeps you in touch if you so desire and DirecTv (HD) is in all rooms except the bunkroom.

Our local property management company is available 24/7 for any emergencies that may arise. They also offer a full menu of fee-based services while you're here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the Comments on our HomeAway website:

This home was beautiful, well-stocked and clean. The view of Lone Peak was stunning. The best part was working with the owner of this home. She was extremely helpful in helping us prepare for our stay at Big Sky and making sure all our needs were met. The house was set-up beautifully for skiing with the trail going right by the house and lots of ski storage in the garage and laundry room. The only negative was the altitude. We didn't realize my husband would have trouble living at 8000 feet. Overall, though, we would highly recommend this home.

Winter Wonderland with Style

  • 5 of 5

We literally just returned home late last night from our dream ski vacation to have a white Christmas in Montana from Orlando, Florida! It was everything and more we had hoped for. Sky Haus is beautiful and easily accommodated all eleven persons in our two families. It is a cozy and well equipped home with so many special touches we almost didn't want to return to Florida. We skied for four days and went on two snowmobile tours to Yellowstone and my whole family laughed, yelled, and played until we couldn't breathe! So much fun! We did end up loading our ski's each day in our rental vehicles and driving to the base instead of skiing in and out because while skiing out of the house is very easy and fun, skiing in is a bear! Lots of polling due to a lack of good access trails back to the house. Otherwise, Sky Haus is the absolute perfect place to enjoy the gorgeous Big Sky area!

A special thank you to Theresa, the homeowner, who made sure all went well and all needs were met with expedience! Wonderful people and wonderful home.

We had such a great stay at Big Haus. This has been our favorite HomeAway we have ever stayed at! The views are so beautiful. We stayed in the summer and there was plenty to do. There are so many great hikes nearby and there was a great fireworks display in the town center for the Fourth of July. This was a great base for visiting Yellowstone. The steam showers were amazing after a long day of hiking. We cooked a lot and all the supplies we needed were in the kitchen. We had a great experience and are now dreaming of visiting again!

Fantastic ski house for 2 families, great views, meticulously appointed

  • 5 of 5

The Sky Haus is a fantastic ski house, plenty Big for 2 families or more. The owners have thought of everything. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking for a crowd, and there are many nice touches that made staying and cooking for a crowd easy and fun. The layout is great with a beautiful view and fun kids room downstairs with foosball and big tv. The hot tub is glorious after a day of skiing. Skiing to the mountain is easy. Skiing home takes a little more time but is easier than driving. Overall a great stay and the best appointed rental either of our families had ever seen. Highest recommendation.

Wonderful, high quality home - great owners

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of guys who have stayed here the last two years to ski. We love this house. It has 3 great upstairs bedrooms, with nice touches like steam showers. There are plenty of bunk beds, futons, etc. downstairs. The owners are very thoughtful. The kitchen is nicely stocked with cooking stuff, spices, etc. Bathrooms are stocked with extra toiletries in case anyone forgot them. Everything is well organized and labeled. There is wood for the nice fireplace. Great view from the deck of Lone Mountain. Ski in/ski out is a slight adventure, but definitely do-able. Any minor problems with the house were quickly resolved by the owners. Definitely a pleasure to stay there. Keeps us from visiting other ski resorts, because we like staying here so much.

Big Sky January 2017

  • 5 of 5

Great property very well appointed and fantastic views. Ski in ski out was good but as advertised you are probably not ducking in for lunch. Jacuzzi was in a spot with views and privacy. Very clean home and I would go back again. Good for multiple families.

Sky Haus was beautiful! The views and wildlife were so fun to watch. Loved being so close to so many attractions. We went horseback riding, whitewater rafting, hiked Beehive Basin, spent 2 days at Yellowstone, did some fly fishing and also went to the top of Lone Peak. It was event filled and a great vacation. Thanks for sharing your place with us.
