Enjoy the quintessential Alta experience at this outdoor enthusiast's haven right 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 gas fireplace, read a good book or watch your favorite movie, take a nice soak in the private hot tub on the private balcony, 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 free Alta shuttle ride from the base area lifts, providing you with easy access to some of the most challenging terrain in North America along with a variety of restaurants and shops. 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.

During the winter months, snow tires are required in the whole canyon. Four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive is required year-round.
This home is not ideal for young children or guests with mobility issues, as you must walk over 100 feet to reach the front door.
The trail is snowy in winter and snow boots are recommended.
Trip insurance is strongly suggested to purchase during winter visits.
There is a caretaker living on-site in the basement.

10/10 Excellent

Great rustic hideaway.
We loved our stay here this year. The place was clean and the caretake (onsite, downstairs) was friendly, easy to get a hold of and she offered to help with the luggage. I declined since I had a group of 15 year olds to do the work instead. There is a bit of a haul getting from the parking lot to the front door. It's about 50 yards (my guess) that ends with a narrow, snowy stairway to the front door. But, they do have a sled by the parking lot to help haul your stuff. The only negative is we did have to shovel out the steps when we got there, but that isn't worth subtracting a star. I have that job the kids.

Summer in Alta
Great location. Alta was a blast during summer. Multiple trailheads nearby. This property is right along a creek. Coffee/drinks on the deck overlooking the creek are a must. One issue we were unaware prior to check-in was the fact that a resident is living in the basement and sharing washer and dryer.
