A comfortable living room with a cathedral ceiling, wood fireplace and a puzzle table to rest the body and challenge the mind. A large kitchen, which seems to always invite a gathering, a family room downstairs with a gas fireplace, and access to a covered deck with a 6-8 person hot tub. Relax in the steam and watch the snowflakes fall. Come out and enjoy!

Big Sky is a renown ski area, with it’s steep, challenging, heart stopping black diamond runs and chutes, it’s long blue cruisers and perfectly groomed, easy green slopes. Chose the one that fits you and have a wonderful experience that you will always remember.

Ski in Ski out Access:

Ski in and out to Big Sky Resort. Best for skiers. Possible for children and Snowboarders, but ski-in can be more difficult for these groups.

Ski out- Travel down the road to the Thunderwolf Lift.

Ski in- Intermediate and Expert take Silverknife to Bear Back Poma. Ski past the bottom of the Poma on the ski trail to Low Dog Road. From here ski the road back to the house. We recommend beginners ski to the Summit Hotel and walk out the front of the hotel and ski the road the whole way back down to Low Dog Road. Silverknife may be too step for beginners. Note: During periods of melting the road could be exposed and cause the property to lose ski access since the road is necessary for parts of the process. Home is only ski accessible when road is snow covered.

The summers offer endless activities. The zip line on the mountain, bicycling, and golf in Meadow Village. Take a three minute stroll to Lake Levinski for shore fishing, or a gentle ride on a paddleboat. The Gallatin River offers Blue Ribbon fly fishing, white water rafting, kayaking, or a mesmerizing spot for a picnic. Big Sky has many hiking trails, and adjoins the beautiful Spanish Peaks Wilderness with it’s endless trails for hiking or horse back riding, or chose a horseback ride with a fun steak dinner on a spectacular mountain meadow.

***Montana is a state where we receive snow on the ground 9 out of the 12 months. Therefore, we do not have air conditioning. If you would like (during your stay), we are more than welcome to supply fans at no charge.***

***You can request humidifiers during your stay for an additional $10.00 per humidifier.***

About Beehive Property Management

Marty and Zenalou Bennis took their first ski lessons at age 40 and 38 at a small ski area in Minnesota, along with our four sons, Gregory, Jeffery, Daniel and Tom ages 9 to 15. At the end of the lesson, the children disappeared, while Marty and Zenalou tried over and over to conquer the bunny slope. Three hours later, the boys reappeared astounded that we were still struggling to hang onto the same slope and announced, “we’ve been all over already.” OK. From that day in 1970 to this we have loved the sport, and concluded that it is the finest of all family sports. All ages and abilities can ski where they like and join the family at days end, to share and laugh at the fun and mishaps. We always filled our vehicle, first a station wagon, and later a motor home, with as many of the children’s friends as we could fit, most of whom still ski.

Beehive Property Management purchased this house in 1995

Why Beehive Property Management chose Big Sky Mountain Village

After years of skiing in many areas of the west Marty and Zenalou found Big Sky, MT in March before it opened the following December. A few condominiums had been built in Meadow Village, and there was one left, which Chet Huntley assured us we needed. We agreed and became proud owners of a two bedroom Silverbow Condo. We eventually sold it, and over time, owned three different condo’s on the mountain. Then one cold day with a blizzard raging, we decided to check out an ideally located, partially finished, home on Low Dog Road, and fell in love. Finishing our new home took the summer of 1995. We named it Cliffhanger, celebrated it’s Grand Opening over Christmas and it has been loved and enjoyed by our children, grandchildren and many friends, both summer and winter, ever since.

What makes this house unique

Staying at Cliffhanger is a feast for the eyes. The beauty of the surrounding area refreshes ones spirit. Watching the snow fall, then marvel over the sculptures it creates. A warm crackling fire, a game of cards, working one of the ever present puzzles, listening to a CD, watching a video, or TV. Soaking in the outdoor under cover hot tub. Laughing and reliving our day with family and friends while sitting at the welcoming kitchen counter. Games for the children. It’s a special time. In summer, we have watched the bears stroll down the road, a mother moose come down out of the forest with her wobbly legged baby who could barely stay upright, but followed her bravely down to the creek. Deer are often present, the mountain birds and busy squirrels who chewed the opening in the bird house to the right size and now it’s their home. The wild flowers seem like God’s decorations. We open the windows and listen to the West Fork of the Gallatin as it makes it’s way to the river. Sightseeing the area always seems new, and we never tire of it.

Wonderful Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 women all loved Cliffhanger. It was a perfect house - beautiful, very comfortable, very clean, well-stocked, and had awesome views. The location was great - we walked to the poma lift one day to ski to Mountain Base, but other days, we just drove the short ride to the free parking lot and took the shuttle to the lift area. It was an easy walk to the restaurants and shops in Mountain Village. The hot tub was a great way to end a ski day, and we enjoyed the jigsaw puzzles. We had perfect snow/ski conditions, so the week could not have been better. Big Sky may be our new favorite ski place, and Cliffhanger was certainly a place we would stay at again.

Great location, ski virtually to and from the door! easy walk to Mtn. Village dining and shops.

Our 8 gents loved the beautifully carpeted garage staging area, relaxing family room, large kitchen and dining, and great combination of bedrooms and baths.

The house was very clean and well appointed with amenities, supplies, and ambiance,

We would all highly recommend the Cliffhanger House for large groups and families!

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening up your home again for us to stay. The snow skiing was very good as usual. We were able to ski down to the Thunder Wolf chair again this trip so the short walk to the poma was not necessary.

Our two families(9 people) were able to get lost in your spacious home. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the house. Your garage/ping pong/pool/ski/boot room is a great set up.

We hope to be back soon to enjoy the beautiful view of the mountain from your living room!
