Reviewed 18 December 2013

one of the BEST ski in ski out cabins anywhere. We stayed at the powder ridge cabins with 4 bedrooms, nice living room, big kitchen, BBQ on deck and a great hot tub to soak away the day of skiing. we just walked out the back door and put on our skis and bingo we were at the white otter lift for a day of skiing. we would ski in for lunch also !! I really hate to give a great review cuz I sure would like to keep these cabin secret !!!!
you will enjoy the powder Ridge Cabins !!and Big Sky !!!

Room Tip: make sure you are right on the ski trail !!

We stayed in Powder Ridge 105. A wonderful large well appointed log house. Two fireplaces ,ping pong ,fooseball,three master suites, hot tub, ski out right off the back deck . Comfortably furnished. Soap shampoo hair dryers washer/dryer , big soft towels. A very short drive to Big Sky Base. Amenities at the Huntley are included: fitness center/pool/hot tub. Had groceries pre- delivered by Hungry Moose just order online and $25 delivery fee. Great to arrive with a stocked kitchen! Great view of the Spanish Peaks mountain range. Great skiing but summer activities are nearby too: horseback riding/golf/hiking/fishing/spa/ kid activities/ less than one hour drive to Yellowstone Park!

This review is for Powder Ridge Cabin 1 (VRBO #414775) and Cabin 7 (VRBO #104703).

I tried to publish this same review to VRBO.com and they were rejected, which leads me to believe that they know about the negatives regarding the ski-in/ski-out I will mention below and just don't want them posted. I am NOT a fan of that.

My family (along with 3 other families) rented Powder Ridge cabins 1 and 7 from 12/31 - 1/5. The cabins themselves really are fantastic. We had 2 families in each cabin (7 in one and 8 in the other). Not a lot of extra room with that many people, but it didn't feel crowded either. The cabin was well maintained and clean. The private hot tub was nice after a long day of skiing. The cabins are very close to the base area which was nice for going to get our ski gear and lift tickets.

The real "negatives" relate to the nature of the ski-in/ski-out. The ski-out is especially tough if you are a beginner. We had a lot of beginners in our group and we knew we would have to walk 50 yards or so to access the trail that took us down to the lift. But once even on that trail, there are some uphill sections that we found the easiest way to navigate was to take off our skis off and walk. Total, we probably still didn't have to walk more than 75-100 yards, so it wasn't bad. But just be prepared for it. The ski back in is beautiful as it winds through the trees. There are a couple of flat spots but you can generally get up enough speed to make it through most of those once you know where they are. However, there is a rather short, steep hill right before you get to the cabins. You can go around it but that requires walking. A lot of the beginners in our group took their skis off and slid down it while we were there, which worked fine.

Overall, it was a great trip and this is a really nice play to stay - just be aware that the ski-in/ski-out isn't perfect and I think you'll enjoy it more.

Rented a cabin here and it was perfect for my husband amd two teenagers. Although, the area is a little remote, it is well worth the hour long drive from Bozeman airport. Get your groceries for the week before heading to Big Sky! There are no grocery stores within 50 MILES. Check in was easy and the staff was very helpful by giving directions and explaining amenities. The cabin had a hot tub and was beautiful inside. I would have loved to call it my own. The snow capped mountains in August was amazingly refreshing. I would go back in a skinny minute. A little pricey to get there from the east coast, but it was the vacation of a lifetime. Rent a car! Yellowstone is about an hour or so away. Visit Bear World in Idaho if you have the time. That was awesome!

We loved this cabin! It was very homey.

Big Sky is great for skiing, with fresh powder every day, and no lift lines. It was a little cold when we were there, but hey, we were skiing.

Powder ridge 15 is on the White Otter slope (a slope off to the side of the resort). We literally walked across the street and up a slope and were on the ski slope. Depending on the day, we had to sometimes use our poles a lot to ski down to the lift, but we also could have taken a bus that comes hourly, or call the bellman to drive us to the base if we wanted.

The cabin itself was great. It was clean, and had three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. (two bunk beds=4 twins, a queen, and a king).Each bedroom had it's own TV, and there was a flat screen TV and DVD player in the living room. This cabin has free wi-fi. There was also a woodburning fireplace in the living room and plenty of wood on the front porch so we made a fire almost every night.

The kitchen was clean and well equipped including toaster, microwave, blender and coffee maker. There were plenty of pots and pans, and dishes/cups/glasses.

There was a washer and dryer in the house but the best part was the hot tub on the back deck. Unlike other reviews I read, the hot tub was clean, and had views of the ski slopes.

Housekeeping came every other day and supplied clean linens and towels.
We also had access to the gym, pool, and hot tub and sauna in the Huntly Lodge, but after skiing all day we never checked it out. We were happy to go back to the cabin and relax.

Room Tip: This was the only cabin we stayed in, but we really liked it. compared to other reviews I read I th...

We spent 4 nights in February 2012 in this wonderful 4 bedroom home. Everything in this home is top notch. the cabin was clean and tastfully decorated. The 2 master bedrooms on the top floor were great and the 2 bedrooms on the main floor were a nice to have for the younger adults in our group. We ate all lunches here because we could ski right to our deck and then ski right from our cabin to the white otter lift. We also cook 3 dinners with the help of a gas grill on the deck. After skiiing the hot tub was a great place to kick back and soak away rhe sore muscles. we look forward to our return !

Room Tip: Our dinner at the lone mountain ranch was a great place to take my wife on valentines day.

Three couples fit well in this house. we rented it for one week. getting to the access lift which is the otter lift was a little bit of a walk but not too bad, getting home was easy, you could ski right to the front door.
the fire place was great and we had plenty of wood.
It is best to have a car, although you could do without a car. It turns out to be a bout the same price if you fly into Bozeman and get Karst shuttle.
Your really need to stock up on food before going into big sky, not much food there to buy.
we stopped in Belgrade and bought groceries for the whole week.
The owners were very helpful and answered all the questions promptly. the price was fair, not a great value, but no too overpriced.
The house needed a deeper cleaning to make make me feel really good, but it not groady, just not as clean as I had expected, dust on the blinds and some long cobwebs hanging from the ceilings. the hot tub water was not very clean either, I didn't use it. But i would not let this deter me from renting this house. I suggest you talk to the owner and make arrangements to make sure is cleaned well before your arrival.
Over all we had a fantastic time, and got fresh powder to ski on valentines day.
If you decide not to get a car, you can call the lodge and they will send you a shuttle to take you you to the main village center.
my biggest disappointment was that there was no wifi, and the owner had said we could access wifi from the nearby areas. I think the owners should get wifi because if you stay somewhere for a whole week, you wanna check you email and be in touch with the outside world.
we skied moon light and bridger bowl as well and loved them all. make sure you take the tram for great views. over all this place worked well for us.
