Home is where the heart is—and if you love to ski, you’ve probably thought of living slopeside! With ski resort homes and condos for sale, you can walk straight to the lift from your front door. Montana is home to 13 different ski areas, and each are beloved by locals and visitors for their unique character. But there’s two in particular with fantastic real estate options. Whitefish epitomizes Northwest Montana, with excellent gladed skiing and epic views of Glacier National Park. Big Sky, on the other hand, is classic Southwest Montana, sitting at a higher elevation with more terrain above treeline.
Ski resort real estate gets the most attention when there’s snow on the ground, but the truth is that they’re not only seasonal properties—a beautiful mountain home is a fabulous year-round investment! And these days, resorts are working harder than ever to create opportunities for activities during the summer.
But let’s focus on the season ahead: winter! Powder skiing. Bumps. Perfectly-groomed corduroy. Living at the ski area means you’re positioned to meet every day head-on. And on the flipside, it’s easier to enjoy après. Big Sky, in particular, has lots of options in its base village for nightlife, restaurants, and shopping.
At the end of the day, many people interested in ski resort housing are seeking a simpler way to live. If you make your home up on the mountain, the distractions fade away and you can focus on making memories with friends and family.
