I recently spent a thrilling week at your condo in Big Sky. Our adventure commenced in Bozeman which is one of most charming and robust cities I have ever visited. Montana State University campus is most impressive as is the Rocky Mt. museum located on campus.We shopped for staples at Rousers, a grocery store that rivals anything in Mpls, St Paul.
The trip from Bozeman to Big Sky which follows the Gallatin River Valley is spectacular and is a great precursor of the scenery to follow.
The town of Big Sky is very western in appearance and does not attempt to be a faux "Alpine" village like Vail and other ski resorts. This is Montana, not Switzerland! Likewise the condo does not pretend to be something it is not. It is very nice,comfortable, accessible, warm and cozy place to stay. It easily accommodated 3 couples on 3 floors, giving all of us privacy. Although we love to take advantage of the many local restaurants, we did utilize the kitchen facilities and found them more than adequate for our needs.
We tried many of the local eating places and especially enjoyed Lone Mountain Ranch, Olive B's and Riverhouse Barbeque. and the new tea place downtown.
I am an early riser and each morning, I took a 10 minute walk to the Moose Deli that offers coffee, beer, wine and the newspaper. Retiring to the deck that overlooks the village is a great place to relax and read the paper.
The activities are too numerous to tell you all of them, but we really enjoyed fly fishing; especially the float trip down the Yellowstone River with Brian and his guides. We hiked, white water rafted and even played golf and were instructed on the use of bear spray (we did not see any bear). I believe we could have spent a week in Yellowstone Park which is less than an hour away.
In all of our experience in Big Sky and your condo in particular, it was a wonderful experience and we plan to return for a winter ski trip.
