Alpine attitude at Whitefish MountainMontana, USA

A treehouse literally at arm’s length from the slopes of one of the USA’s top ranked yet almost unheard of ski resorts? If it sounds perfect that’s because it’s hard to fault a two-bedroom penthouse surrounded by nature. Montana’s Snow Bear Chalet team, which runs two other properties nearby, ensures your boot warmers are labelled accordingly and the balcony spa is heated. You literally fall down the front stairs onto a run and slide to the chairlift while pulling on your ski boots. You cannot get any closer to the action.

A word of warning though – if you sleep late and saunter into the kitchen sans clothes, the snow seekers on chairlift number three will get an eyeful. They’re so close they can peer right in the window. In fact, you could almost high five them. It doesn’t get any better than this when it comes to ski-in, ski-out. And this part of Montana is off the tourist trail, so there are no lines and awesome locals to ski (and après) with.


  • Full kitchen with all the mod cons
  • TV with Netflix and Amazon
  • Skis, snowboardsand bicycles for rent at the resort
  • High-speed wifi
  • Gas fireplace and radiant heating
  • On-site parking

From about US$650 a night for six people.
