The perfect ski home for Alta and Snowbird
This is really an amazing house for anything (not just skiing at Alta), but it just happens to be at the opening of the Little Cottonwood Canyons - meaning I doubt that there is a house any closer to Alta in all of SLC (like 15-20 minutes door-to-door!). So location is nothing short of amazing. And the view from the house is equally stunning. When we booked it there were not any pictures of the view on the listing, but every window in the front of the house is looking straight up the canyon with unobstructed massive mountains on each side, and the backyard is beautifully landscaped and even has a few glimpses of the city below. And, not to make it sound like we got paid for this advertisement (we did not), the house in-and-of itself would be perfect regardless of the location and view! It's completely renovated (top to bottom) and in mint condition and looks as if it is straight out of a home makeover show. It definitely did not disappoint and was on a quiet street that made it seem very rural despite being so close to the city. We even had some deer grazing in the yard one evening :) To be fair, it would have been nice to have access to the garage for our ski gear, but in the grand scheme I would not consider it a dealbreaker by any means. I would be perfectly happy if we could stay here for all of our future trips to Salt Lake for skiing or hiking.
