Ski Rating: 3 stars (Ski Accessible, not Ski-in/Out) Not possible for young children or snowboarders.
It is possible to get from the house and back on skis, but it will require a significant of skating and poling on the ski-out. Ski in is much easier.
Ski Out: Go to driveway and put skis on. Ski road to ski access located about 100 feet west of the house. Ski down onto the groomed access trail. This trail has a slight upward slope and you will need to skate/pole for about 350 yards to the White Otter Chairlift.
Ski-In: Ski In: Lower Morningstar to second set of Powder Ridge signs on the left. Follow the signs for cabins numb...ered 1-22 and follow the access trails back towards the White Otter skier bridge. Cross over the bridge and immediately turn right on the groomed access and ski back under the chair lift. Follow to the bottom of the White Otter Chair and take a right turn on the groomed access behind the lift. Follow this slightly downsloping trail for 350 yards. Hike the hill back to the road and ski the road to the house.

My mini-family reunion was made unforgettable in Big Sky. We stayed in this well maintained and updated property on our most recent trip to Big Sky and could not have more pleased. There was plenty of room to spread out and just enjoy each others' company. The lower level was a big hit with the popcorn maker, pool table and easy access to the hot tub. We didn't really watch a lot of tv but there are plenty to go around. Tv kind of pales in comparison to the drop dead gorgeous view out the back . Big Sky's signature mountain, Lone Peak is perfectly framed for you to enjoy over breakfast.
Big Sky Vacation Rental was very helpful in making this trip happen for us. They are true professionals and know what makes for a great vacation. They give great recommendations for activities and will even send 'round a van to pick you up. They are readily available to make reservations, answer questions, or solve a problem. They also provide some the best Chapstick I have run across .
I am not a skier , but there is plenty to do in the area without strapping on skis. We enjoyed a sleigh ride dinner at Lone Mountain Ranch. A sleigh ride on a cold, clear January night will make an astronomer out of anybody. For the animal lover in your group,a scenic drive down the road to West Yellowstone will take you to the Grizzly and Wolf Center. They are open year-round and I think, definitely worth a look see. And even if you don't ski, hanging out at the resort is still a lot of fun.
I would definitely choose this home again and recommend it to any family, big or small. Can't wait to get back to Big Sky!

I cannot say enough about this wonderful property. It is a clean, well maintained property with a cozy feel and all the amenities one could ask for. We rented two houses for a wedding gathering and Sioux Rd was definitely the favorite of the two. The house is ideally situated for Big Sky skiing as well as West Yellowstone access and is an easy drive from the Bozeman airport.
BigSkyVacationRentals management company did absolutely everything imaginable to make our stay easy and comfortable. They met us on arrival, accepted and shipped packages, had snow plowed and were available 24/7 for any issues (although we had none). I have rented many vacation homes. I only wish they managed properties all over the world!
Great location, beautiful views and lots of amenities

We enjoyed a family gathering with fifteen people in this beautiful cabin. There was plenty of room for everyone. The dart board, pool table, Foosball table and popcorn machine provided lots of entertainment, especially for the kids. The cabin was well appointed with nice furniture that fit the log cabin style. The kitchen was very well equipped for preparing meals for fifteen.
This was my second experience staying in a house managed by Big Sky Vacation Rentals. Again I was very pleased with the service they provided and the cleanliness of the home.
We had two issues with the place while there. The hot tub jets were not working (only a few of them would turn on) and the sauna had too small of a circuit breaker installed so it would trip every five minutes. After calling management they promptly had service men out to address the issues the next morning. The sauna breaker was corrected but the hot tub was only partially fixed. To complete the repair would require draining the tub completely.
Big Sky Vacation Rentals was very up front about the ski access. It is not ski out. But it is an easy walk to the White Otter lift or a very short (1 minute?) drive to the next road where you could park or be dropped off right at the White Otter lift. You can ski in almost all the way to the house but boarders had to walk or shuffle a good distance. Big Sky Vacation Rentals also offered us complimentary priority shuttle pick ups in the morning but we had some non skiers/boarders in the group so we were able to just do pick ups and drop offs more easily on our own.
One major draw back we found with this property was the lack of a boot drying system. It isn't listed in the amenities but I had just assumed it would be there in a ski cabin. We gave the drier a good work out and the sauna also came in handy to dry out liners, boots, gloves, etc.
