Home of the Year Highlight: The Ultimate Ski Room

Gregg and Marsha Hill, the owners of our 2013 Home of the Year, had a clear vision for their home in Big Sky, Montana’s Yellowstone Club community. They wanted a high-country getaway where their whole family could gather to ski in the winter; a place infused with whimsy, fun and a bit of magic. Marsha envisioned her family coming in from the ski hill (which is literally steps away), storing their gear in a ski room, changing out of their ski clothes, relaxing in a steam shower or hot tub and getting cleaned up for a family dinner. 

Architect Reid Smith delivered. A dramatic “ski bridge” extends from the main house to an elevator that descends 31 feet to this slopeside ski room. Marsha had two requests for the room: space for every family’s gear and a hot-chocolate station. The custom cabinets are made of reclaimed wood; baskets hold gloves, hats and scarves. The ottomans are reproduction antique sleds. And no surprise here: The carpet is indoor/outdoor and very durable.
