Stone floors, leather couches and cozy fireplaces galore. The Shoshone Condominiums is the perfect ski in – ski out retreat. Nestled into prime real estate in Big Sky Basin, this large lodging is both parts luxurious and spacious with a contented community feel. Relax poolside in the snow or fireside in the down stairs lobby with drinks and good company. Recharge your body in the spa while looking out onto the peaks as the sun sets fire to the mountain tops.
The Shoshone Condominiums offer both hotel owned rooms and privately owned, self contained apartments. We opted for a privately owned apartment on the top floor. It was a spacious and warm lofted apartment with two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, kitchen and ample living space. The owners provided everything needed, including extra bedding for guests and boot warmers.
In the mornings we worked out at the gym, followed by a coffee in the Fire Hole Cafe before heading upstairs for breakfast. From there we would head to the ski valet at the base of the chairlift to pick up our gear before heading out to explore the mountain.
Big Sky resort is honestly stunning and is one of the most magnificent places I’ve been to ski in the past 15 years. There’s an average of 2 hectares of land per person which means no getting cut of by out of control skiers, no freezing your butt off as you wait in line for the lift and no awful icy slopes. As usual the ski instructors and mountain staff are always super friendly and helpful, there are multiple terrain parks spread throughout the basin and plenty of off piste skiing if you’re a fan of powder and trees like myself!
Because this resort is slightly harder to get too than the likes of Vail, Cannon Mountain and Park City it is far less populated with better snow and weather. If you don’t mind the extra trek for a fabulous holiday then definitely consider Big Sky and Shoshone Condominiums as your next winter wonderland hot spot.
Free people Society was a guest of Shoshone Condominiums however, my opinion as always, remains my own.
