Enjoy the quintessential Alta experience at this outdoor enthusiast's haven on the banks of Little Cottonwood Canyon Creek, where you'll be treated to an enviable location near the base of Alta’s Westward Ho ski run. As one of the first homes in Alta (built by one of the directors of the Alta Ski School), this home has been beautifully updated to retain the charm of the original structure while offering lavish modern amenities. At the end of a day on the slopes, you can curl up in front of the fireplace, read a good book or watch your favorite movie, take a nice soak in the private hot tub on the deck, and soak in majestic views of Mt. Superior and Alta Ski Area.
Whether you're planning to watch the snow fall in the winter, wake up to the sounds of the neighboring creek in the summer, or catch a glimpse of the spectacular fall foliage, this home was made for lovers of the outdoors. The house is a short walk or shuttle ride from the base area lifts, providing you with easy access to some of the most challenging terrain in North America. The avid skier will also find some of the best backcountry in the world nearby. Come summertime, you'll be within walking distance of hiking trails at Alta and Snowbird, as well as wildflower fields, other natural wonders, and the Hellgate Cliffs - a world-class rock climbing destination.
Things to know:
