The Beaverhead condos are adjacent to the Big Sky ski slopes. The White Wing ski trail is directly behind the condo building making ski in and ski out easy. There is a passage between the next building that gets groomed.
Unit 1452 is located up a flight of stairs making bag carrying somewhat difficult. Although the building is equipped with an elevator we did not have use.
Skis and other equipment can be stored in the garage.
The kitchen is well equipped. This unit can accommodate 8-10 adults in comfort. The bunk beds make it suitable for kids. I was there on a ski club trip for which the unit is well suited.
There is a hot tub however it is only accessible through 2 adjoining bedrooms. (We had a problem with the hot tub circuit breaker repeatedly tripping.)
There is also a fireplace and firewood is provided, however it is stored in the garage.
We stayed at no 1448 - newer condo than some of the other Beaverhead blocks - we set home home here for 3 weeks with various friends arriving throughout - excellently set up for 6 adults with three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
One room has bunks if travelling with children. Other 2 rooms have large comfortable king size beds!
Hubbie loved walking outside and 2 min walk later skiing down to the lift.
The condo is well set up with everything you need in the kitchen - big oven and cooktop - dishwasher, lots of pots and pans a a big fridge as well as a drinks fridge. And a BBQ outside if you want to brave the cold. Large washing machine and dryer. Large garage space provided. Heating very effective - the best thing is watching the sun rise over the valley and sun shining in all day - very cozy - tv DVD player also!!!! We loved our stay thank you .
location--100ft. walk (some uphill) to White Wing run in a.m..
easy to ski down to. stayed here 7 days.
in cold, winter weather, NOT easy walk to village (~ 1/4 mile) and coming "home" is uphill. so if you don't have a car, options for dinner are very limited. (you could ask "cowboy" valet at hotel for ride, depending on availability). the Beaverhead condo group advertises "access" to hotel's pool, spa, and fitness room. this is unrealistic, at least in winter--walking to hot tub, pool in fitness clothes is not possible.
condo itself--pluses--has indoor spa!, 3 baths, 2 bedrooms with 6 bed "loft".
furnishings "mountain resort" style--logs, iron grid. store skis in garage. kitchen utensils provided. fair condition. shag carpet. stone tile in foyer and bathroom. room heaters work well.
housekeeping service on day 4 was very cursory. didn't empty trash, barely "made" bed, didn't replace towels, etc.
this specific condo is actually probably 4; went with club who rented 12 condos total and heard did hear horror stories. Oh. and although check in was supposed to be 5pm, housekeeping had not finished yet and we were able to check in until 8pm. We had to lug our carry-on bags to dinner.
Beaverhead 1448 is a wonderful place to stay. The Condo is spacious, comfortable, well laid-out. The appliances were new and the condo has been maintained very well. We enjoyed the hot tub and the location to the ski hill and mountain village.
One drawback was that every door has a different code, the garage (inside and outside), hot tub room and the condo. I put all of the codes in my phone and texted them to my family. It was nice to not have to worry about keys, but there were 4 codes to keep track of plus and "exit" code. But we all felt safe and secure.
The heated garage was convenient in that we could just walk in and leave our skis and boots. Parking is great -- there were 2 back-to-back stalls in the garage and two back-to-back outside the garage.
We were visited a staff member soon after our arrival and she was helpful and patient in showing us our location on the mountain map and the best access to the ski hill.
The resort moved us from another lodging to Beaverhead Condos because the Condos were supposed to be an upgrade, and we had a bad experience with our original lodging. Beaverhead Condos are spacious, and the location is nice. We weren't looking for luxury, but I do like a place to be clean. There was dog poop on the balcony when we arrived in the condo, and from entering and seeing that, we quickly realized that the condo was not going to be super clean. There was a thick coating of dust on all of the shelves in the condo, and tons of dog(?) fur on everything in the condo. All of the upholstery in the condo was so thread bare, it was almost colorless. The floors were super dirty. My child got ringworm on her face, which could have come from the Big Sky ski helmets or the bath tub. There was a cabinet door missing in the kitchen. We don't really know where it went; it was just gone when we got there. The utensils, plates and pots were mix and match. The pots and pans were so old that they were difficult to make spaghetti with. Someone spontaneously let him or herself into our condo, locked different locks on the doors, and turned the heat up. They didn't clean or fix anything, so we don't really know what that was all about, but some of my Dad's medication went missing after that. We called management to ask if anyone had access to our condo, but they said no one did and never called back. The second day we were there another family arrived with children and stayed in the condo above us, and there was no sound proofing. We could clearly hear everything they were doing from our living room. I won't return to Big Sky after this experience. The manager tried to fix things by not charging us for the upgrade, but when we got to checkout, they still tried to charge us for it, and we had to spend more time on the phone getting it worked out. It's a beautiful mountain, but dealing with the resort isn't worth it.
