15 years ago we started coming to Big Sky Montana to go skiing with friends - we used to go to CO (Vail - Aspen - Breckenridge - and Copper Mt.) they are all nice BUT if you love to ski and actually WANT TO SKI - then you will consider Big Sky - Over 5,000 acres of slopes and little to no people. * By comparison!
SO let's talk the Skycrest! Absolutely the best deal in Big Sky and with the best views. We have stayed in many of these units - all are wonderful - we recommend 1723 but you can find them on VRBO and other private rentals. They are really big living areas - 2 bed rooms in most (i thinks some have 3) with a hot tub inside. Yes, they are a little on the older side( for some of them ) but we have stayed all over Big Sky and these properties have been the most consistent and best value.
VIEW: When you stay in "the Circle" as we call it - you rarely get a view of the mountains but ALL the Skycrest units face Lone Peak and you see everything - even the fireworks on New Years Eve.
You do need to drive to the FREE parking to access the main village or take the shuttle (get catch the free shuttle bus - get a schedule so you know the times) however Big Sky is about skiing and bringing your own fun. Very little night life because you can ski so hard you are dead dog tired. Make dinner back at the place - crack some wine - sit in the hot tub and you are "toast" rest and relax in front of the fireplace and then get rested for the next full day of skiing.
If you are a skier at other resorts you know that getting in 6 full runs before lunch is not a leisurely endeavor - at Big Sky - no problem - SHHHH don't tell anyone we don't want the secret to get out!!!! ; )
We have been to CO once since we started traveling here and really no reason to go back - Beautiful scenery on and off the hill - don't just ski on the view (like Breckenridge) ski and look at the view too! Amazing!
Great skiing - and the Skycrest is a great place to make your base camp. (underground indoor heated parking too!)
