Concierge.com's insider take:
Rather than slope-shy ski bunnies working up a wine buzz, this all-inclusive luxury resort in Big Sky attracts hyperathletic types who crave downhill thrills and the cardiovascular challenge of a 50-mile cross-country network. That carpe diem attitude has won Lone Mountain a loyal following of guests who return year-round for skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, fly-fishing, horseback riding, and hearty steak-and-potatoes fare—all of which is included in the room rate. Built in 1926, the seven original cabins have Lodgepole pine walls stained dark with age and wood-burning fireplaces (the brawny staff handles the chopping). Couples should request Porcupine, which has a porch overlooking the creek, or Bitterroot, which is tucked away in the woods. Groups should opt for Hilltop (sleeps 6), Bull Moose (sleeps 5), or Ridgetop (18). All of the rough-hewn pine cabins—there are 23 in all—have heavy down comforters and vintage prints of local geological wonders, but no telephones or TVs. There's a one-week minimum stay, although you might be able to negotiate a four-night stay in the slower winter months. It's a popular place, so book six months to a year in advance.
