It's time to get gnarly.
There’s a distinct giddy excitement among the ski and snowboard community this time of year. As the fall leaves finally drop to the ground and most people start digging out their hats and mittens, skiers and riders are sharing long-range forecasts with their group chats, pouring over new trail maps, and thinking about which backcountry adventures to take this year. Even Airbnb is in on the soon-to-be winter fun, announcing its most wish-listed ski-in, ski-out properties in the world. Including one very special property right here in the United States.
The home rental giant shared some of the most wish-listed stays in the Ski-in/out Category and the New Modern House in Big Sky, Montana, was the only U.S.-based house to make the list. And it’s very easy to see why so many people wish they could stay in the gorgeous abode.
The three-bedroom, two-bath home boasts stunning views of Lone Peak out of its oversized windows, allowing both the light to pour in and the vistas to appear as if they were framed just for you. And the best part is those windows in the living room open fully to the patio outside, for indoor/outdoor living on perfect bluebird days.
The deck also comes with a hot tub for après soaks, a BBQ for mealtime, and an outdoor fireplace for roasting marshmallows with your travel companions.
The open floor plan allows for plenty of space to stretch out, which is great considering the home says it can fit up to eight guests comfortably per stay.
Inside, guests can stay warm by the fireplace, lounge on the plush leather furnishings, gather in the chef’s kitchen, or retreat to their cozy rooms. Said rooms include a custom-made, triple-decker bunk bed space for kids, and queen and king bedding for adults. And while this is usually an unremarkable amenity to mention, the home also has a washer and dryer, which is key for all those dirty and wet ski clothes.
As for the skiing, the home sits just one mile from the Big Sky parking lot, .3 miles to the White Otter 2 lift, which you can ski to, but you will need a ride back when you’re done shredding for the day. But we’ll take what we can get, especially for a space like this.
See more about the home, which starts at $442 per night at airbnb.com.
