Ennis Montana Real Estate-  Jack Creek Road makes Ennis a secret ski town.  Ennis MT and the Madison Valley is an area known for world class fly fishing, hunting, hiking, and all around great summer outdoor recreation.  While Big Sky Montana is known for world class skiing and riding at Big Sky Resort and Moonlight Basin and a whole host of other winter recreation options.  While all the above is true, Ennis Montana maintains a secret identity as a truly great ski town as well.  The secret is the private Jack Creek Road owned and maintained by Moonlight Basin Resort.

Just about everyone I talk with about Jack Creek Road is surprised to hear that it is maintained year round.  In fact Moonlight Basin does a fantastic job keeping the road plowed.  The plow driver actually lives in Ennis so it’s plowed out pretty early.  From Ennis to the Moonlight Basin Parking area at the Madison Village Base Lodge it’s about a 45 – 50 minute drive and an easy 20 miles.  See below for a video of the trip from downtown Ennis to Moonlight Basin playing at 8 times normal speed.

The secret is not out yet and Ennis Montana real estate prices have not taken on the same value as those in other areas with such close proximity to world class skiing.  For more information on the Madison Valley Ski Club or real estate opportunities in the Madison Valley contact Lincoln Roberts at any of the contact areas on this website.

Access to Jack Creek Road / the Big Sky Road Way is granted via membership to the Madison Valley Ski Club with permission from Moonlight Basin Ranch.  Access is granted on a year to year basis with no expressed or implied warranties on continued access in years to come.
