Property description

Great Locaton
Our four bedroom townhome is located midway between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons offering easy access to UofU, Downtown, Airport. This townhome provides plentiful room and all of the comforts of your own home without the cost and cramped quarters of a hotel.

Personal and Experienced
When you call for information about our townhome, you will talk to us, not an out-of-state absentee landlord. We really do own and operate our own property, and we've been doing so for over 25 years. We rent our townhomes because we love winter sports -- ask any of our return guests. Our years of experience as instructors at Alta, Snowbird and the Park City area help us understand the vacation needs of our guests from a unique perspective. When you call, you will talk to us, not a rental service, If you have questions during your stay about where to ski, we can help. If you need equipment, a boot fitter or an instructor, we are here to help make your winter vacation the best it can be. Need more or less space, call and we can help you find a different size townhome to meet your needs.

Shops, Restaurants and Options
There's no need to get trapped skiing just one resort when you stay in this conveniently located townhome, and there's no reason to settle for high-priced and under-performing resort food either. With a fully equiped kitchen, you can pick up groceries down the street and have a home-cooked meal for the whole family, or choose from the best restaurants in town or just visit the local burger shop. With this townhome the choice is yours.

Discount Car Rentals and Lift Tickets
We have established relationships with car rental agencies and discount lift ticket programs in order to provide you with a full-service vacation option. Don't hesitate to call for more information.

Owner info

About the owner: We came to Utah from Buffalo, New York in search of the Greatest Snow on Earth. After teaching skiing in the East, we sought out the great mountain skiing of the West. The year we arrived in Utah we began instructing at Alta with the Alf Engen Ski School. We started renting our townhome to skiers shortly thereaafter. No one in the Salt Lake area has been so committed to skiers. We were married at Alta on a powder day in March next to Cecret Lake and in sight of the Sugarloaf chairlift. We skied down the mountain after the ceremony. Because of our affiliation and status with the Professional Ski Instructors of America, we have given clinics and exams at all the Utah ski areas. We are personal friends with virtually all of the ski school directors in Utah and many of the instructors. We can give you inside and in-depth information about Utah skiing that is unmatched by any of our competitors. We care for our own rental properties and talk personally with each of our guests. As veterans of the ski teaching profession, we understand your vacation needs from your point of view and are uniquely qualified to assist you with your vacation plans. We can supply answers to virtually all of your ski-related questions upon your arrival in Salt Lake City and can even arrange your rental car and lift-ticket needs in advance. We own our own property and care for it, we answer our own phones, and we are always there to make sure your vacation is the best it can be. Please be our guest and discover Utah skiing in affordable comfort.

Why the Owner Chose Alta:
We wanted our location to be the most flexible for people wanting the opportunity to ski all of the great resorts surrounding the Salt Lake Valley. If snow storms close Little Cottonwood Canyon and lock people in their hotel rooms, our guests have the option of skiing Brighton, Solitude, or traveling a little farther to visit Snowbasin, home of the 2002 Winter Olympics, or down to Robert Redford's Sundance. But our hearts are in the Cottonwood canyons, and we wanted our best access to Alta, Snowbird, Brighton and Solitude.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Our guests rent directly from us. We don't just hand off our property to a third-party rental agent. We answer your calls, answer your questions, and are always there to help. And, our guests enjoy a fully furnished home, not a hotel room. Winter sports isn't just a business for us, it is a way of life that we share with all of our guests.
