Great, place close to slopes
We loved this cabin in BiG Sky, but we probably wouldn't return. We had 4 couples, 8 people total and it was a little cramped. The photos made it seem a little bigger. The ski out was great, straight down the road to a lift. However, getting back was a challenge, it was about 30 minutes of Cat Walk to get back and then you have to hike up the hill to get to the house. The hot tub was nice but our grill did not work and we had to cook all of our burgers and dogs on the stove.
Overall it was a nice house, but we would prefer something different next time.
Thank you for staying with Big Sky Vacation Rentals. We enjoy sharing our local knowledge of the area along with our favorite dining experiences. We hope your group enjoyed these recommendations! I am truly sorry you experienced issues with the grill. As a local company, we would have been happy to stop by and assess the grill if it was not working. After reading your review I sent our maintenance team to look at the grill and we are replacing it with a brand new Weber! We look forward to hosting you again, thanks for a great experience!

This place was perfect for my extended family get together. The ski-in/out was a little tough because of all of the fresh snow and flat ground, but definitely a good problem to have. A word of warning, the driveway on this unit is really steep, so you need a 4wd vehicle just to get up and down.
Thank you for staying with Big Sky Vacation Rentals. We enjoy sharing our local knowledge of the area along with our favorite dining experiences. We hope your group enjoyed these recommendations! We recommend guests to rent 4-wheel drive for anywhere in Big Sky, but this property in particular requires it more than others. We look forward to hosting you again, thanks for a great experience!

We had a group of 6 adults and 6 kids.... the house functioned great for our group. Music system set up to play on house speakers inside and out through your phone (unfortunately, not the iPhone 5, but luckily one of us had a 4) We had a box of games delivered for the kids, which was great. The hot tub and the grill was a nice bonus. Kitchen was the only down side... electric stove top and inadequate pots and pans. Although the electric griddle was a nice surprise for pancakes and french toast! We used Hungry Moose food delivery service, and I cannot recommend them enough! Amazing service... direct from owner. Ski out was great... ski in a bit challenging with young kids, but we got the hang of it by end of week... got the kids poles for the flat sections then it was a breeze. Would totally recommend this property management group.... they were fantastic to work with.
Thank you so much for your kind review. Sounds like you had a great time on your vacation. So glad you found our team to be helpful and friendly. The speaker system does have AirPlay, Apple TV and also a adapter cord to plug into newer iPhones....feel free to call us with any questions in the future so you can take advantage of the great amenities in our properties! Unfortunately almost none of the standard Powder Ridge cabins have gas stoves as they were built with electric. You might consider our Platinum Collection Powder Ridge Cabins if this is an important criteria.
Thanks for letting us know about the pots/pans. As of today the cabin has a brand new set of beautiful stainless cookware.
We appreciate your feedback!
Thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again next year.

Very helpful staff to help with directions and getting settled into cabin. Cabin was beautiful with tasteful decorations and well stocked kitchen. Used the propane grill and hot tub several times. Ski out is from the back yard down to the white otter lift very easy access. Returning home skied right to front door. In house washer and dryer for mid week laundry. Had a great time.
powder ridge review
Enjoyed our visit. Biggest attraction is the property is professionally managed and not owner manged . The property managers are prompt, professional and responsive. So no having to deal with cranky unreasonable owners who generally have no clue about property management issues.
A nice big house in a good location
It is a very spacious house located in the Big Sky by the Lone Mountain close to Yellowstone National Park. The house is big enough for 10-12 people comfortable, good facilities and everything is updated. Very clean.
Winter: Big Sky Resort offers 5,800 acres of ski-able terrain! If this is not your style, we also have options including cross country skiing, Yellowstone park tours, dog-sledding, and more! Summer: Big Sky MT is the basecamp for Yellowstone in the summer months! Located only an hour from the West Yellowstone entrance, Big Sky offers activities including zipline, lake boat rentals, and scenic chairlift rides. Great fly fishing spots, and an abundance of hiking trails, Big Sky is your summer vacation destination.
