Our home offers full access to the Incredible Reserve Golf Club and Moonlight Basin Spa. After years of skiing Moonlight Basin and Big Sky we are very excited to own and share with you the newest Mountain Home at Moonlight, Alpine Meadows; Chalet 74! Located at 2 Silver Star Drive.

Moonlights newest Mountain Home. Additional photos are on our website gallery.

Conveniently located between the Moonlight Lodge and the new Gateway Ski Village, our Chalet provides easy direct access to the Moonlight Lodge, Moonlight Basin Ski Resort and the Big Sky Ski Area. Two steps off the back deck places you on a green trail direct to the Madison Lodge base area with ski schools, ticket sales, equipment rental, dinning and the Six Shooter and Derringer lifts taking you to over 5,500 acres of skiing.

Maybe the best value in skiing in North America, with no crowds at Moonlight and some of the best terrain in the Rockies we seldom find ourselves venturing further than Moonlight!

Our spacious 2,600 sq ft chalet with attached garage has 3 bedrooms plus a loft and 4.5 baths, accommodating up to 12 with enough room to relax peacefully. The upper master suite features a king bed, gas fireplace, its own private deck with breathtaking views, a flat screen TV and Jacuzzi tub. The first bedroom on the lower level features a spacious room with a king bed with the second spacious bedroom featuring two twins that can be configured into a king, if requested. The Loft is perfect for traveling families featuring a twin over twin trundle bed and a sleeper sofa. The Loft also features a 42” flat screen set up with a Nintendo Wii to keep families entertained after a long day on the slopes. All bed rooms have stereos with iPod docking connections.

The spacious living area has a full wood burning fireplace and breathtaking views of the Spanish Peaks, Andesite Mountain and Lone Peak, and huge vistas of the valley below. This home is fully furnished with an iPod docking and mp3 compatible, Blue Ray entertainment system and 42” flat screen in the main lounge, fully furnished Gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and wine cooler. A 6 person hot tub perfectly placed under the stars. Top of the line washer and dryer, iron and ironing board (don’t get too carried away, this is Montana) and hairdryers in all baths.

Not just for ski vacations, ten minutes from the Gallatin river and some of the best fly fishing in Montana and only 45 minutes from Yellowstone National Park, you will never run out of things to do in any season. The area has available Golfing, Mountain Biking, Skiing, Fishing, Horseback Riding, Rafting, Kayaking, Hiking Zip Line, Fine Dining The Spa at Moonlight Lodge and much more.

This property provides direct ski-in/ski-out access to some of the most amazing slopes in the Mid-West. And during all seasons provides an incredible view of the surrounding mountains. What sets the Moonlight Basin apart from other resorts is its still undiscovered beauty. Even during peak season you almost feel like you have the mountain to yourself. A complete retreat for the whole family.

About Jeff Dudas

Two partners and best friends. Our families love the mountains in all seasons. We have been coming to Moonlight since 2004 and finally had to have a part of it that we can call our own. Our boys love to ski and hike and this is a great place to escape the heat in the Southeast in the summer and to find the best snow in the winter.

Jeff Dudas purchased this house in 2010

Why Jeff Dudas chose Big Sky

Avid skiers for over 30 years we have skied Moonlight since 2004 and fell in love with the magic vistas and exceptional skiing. Having skied in Europe, Australia and North America we just can't describe how exceptional Moonlight Basin skiing is. The lack of crowds makes it feel like you have your own private mountain.

What makes this house unique

Inspiring views, wide open spaces and a family friendly setting will make this feel like your own home. We have furnished this with board games and entertainment for the kids and all of the niceties from blenders to kitchen wear so you will feel at home not like you are staying in a rental.

The Best in Big Sky Hands Down!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are veterans of Big Sky, specifically Cowboy Heaven. Knowing this place as we do, we had extremely high expectations. These expectations at every turn were met or exceeded. From the appointments in the house to the ski in ski out, you can do no better. There is one aspect to this house that you do not find out about until you have begun the process of renting it. That is how extremely responsive, truly concerned, and detail oriented the owner Jeff is. This isn't some rental company that fits you into their schedule, but a hands on individual who truly cares about you having a good stay on your vacation. An absolute top shelf experience from start to finish. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Exactly as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as advertised - great property in great condition with great mountainside location. This home is modern and well laid out with lots of room for a larger family or a group of friends or even a small group that likes to stretch out. Brightly lit with plenty of windows and excellent view. We had a great family ski week at this home and would definitely come back.

A Sweet and Memorable Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely mountain home is a wonderful vacation spot and we will return soon. We have previously rented other properties on the mountain and this is by far our favorite. We had several nights just the two of us and had family members (ranging in age from 6 to 60) come and go throughout the week. Everyone was thrilled with the accommodations (en-suite bathrooms make a big difference) The kitchen is very well appointed with high quality pans, baking/serving pieces, dishes, cooking utensils, wine glasses ,etc. For us, this particular feature was important as we enjoyed cooking in most nights. We were toasty warm, despite freezing temperatures outside there were no drafts and the interior temperature remained steady. While we visit Big Sky often in the summer this was our first winter/ski experience. What can we say other than AMAZING! Having a true ski on/ski off property made our introduction to skiing here particularly special. An easy jump onto the scenic trail (out the back door) and you are at the lift in 5 minutes. From Madison you have easy access to the entire resort. Skiing back home was just as straight forward. We enjoyed the Apple TV, wireless, fireplaces, multiple humidifiers, warm décor, candles, comfortable 'mud' room for getting ready, large garage and everything else. Oh, I almost forgot the views. The stargazing from the hot tub is indescribable. If you haven't seen the Spanish Peaks you will see them directly from the couch - spectacular. Can't wait to go back.

Great Father/Son Ski week

  • 5 of 5

This mountain home was just as billed. Very well appointed including lots of kitchen amenities. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and an easy ski in/ski out access. Loved the heated garage for my rental truck, especially when the snow fell. My son and his buddy loved the hot tub on the deck---super easy access even on the coldest of nights.

We had four in our group allowing each of us our own bedroom and bath. Could easily have accomodated twice that number of guests. This property was everything it was claimed to be and then some. The view from the living space was spectacular. Would recommend to any of my family and friends and fully expect to return myself some day to enjoy again!

Excellent family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This mountain home is exactly as described in a beautiful setting. We stayed a week and it went by too fast. We enjoyed hiking (especially Beehive Basin and Ousel Falls) and activities in the area including white water rafting, zip lining, ropes course, horseback riding, the lone peak expedition and a couple of day trips into Yellowstone. We spotted a moose in the Moonlight Basin area as well as on our way to Yellowstone along the Gallatin River. The kids loved the loft in the home along with the great supply of games (board, cards and electronic). The kitchen and eating area were very nice. We loved having a washer and dryer, plenty of bathrooms and wifi was a plus. The hot tub on the desk was a nice treat too as well as the areas to sit outside and look at the lovely views. We definitely recommend this home to others. It is truly a beautiful place. In addition, the places to eat in the surrounding area are terrific. We really enjoyed Olive B's, Buck T-4 and the Gallatin Riverhouse. A fun and memorable family vacation was had by all!
