Property description

The Red Fern Chalet is a beautiful hand crafted custom built ski home with 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, open fire places, a number of decks and balconies including a heated deck with a hot tub, garage, private parking, and boot room. It has a ground level, effectively self contained, with 2 bedrooms (and one double sofa bed) a kitchen and bathroom. This makes the house perfect for two families sharing.

The Red Fern is located between world famous powder ski resorts of Alta and Snowbird with incredible panoramic mountain views, particularly from the main deck. The resort enjoys incredible skiing conditions year in, year out with an average of about 50 feet of snow per annum over that last 10 years (that's more than 14 metres).

In the Summer months it's a stunningly beautiful, creekside location and an ideal base for hiking, climbing, camping and all other outdoors pursuits that Utah State has to offer.

At any time of the year, the Red Fern is a terrific environment to unwind. It has been furnished with comfort and cosiness in mind and does not have that 'rental property' vibe. The Red Fern is generously equipped with an extensive library, hundred of games, and an amazing entertainment system reaching every room and living area. The kitchen is fully equipped for the most ambitious chef.

Rion is our caretaker, part-time snow reporter and one of the younger, old timers at the Alf Engen Ski School. When he is not testing the appetite of advanced pre-teen and teenage skiers for adventures off the beaten trail at Alta and Snowbird, he is there to make your stay as fun and carefree as possible. He knows the resort as well as anyone and will be happy to help you with any questions or queries from booking a chef or a masseur or a restaurant, to introducing you to Dr Ken at the Alta Clinic if you get bitten by an Alta snow snake and twist a knee. He can arrange transport from the airport or into Salt Lake for excursions, food shop for your arrival and organise housecleaning, all depending on how exactly you want and enjoy it.

Welcome to the Red Fern! Welcome to Alta!

Alta is for Skiing!

Keep Alta weird!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: My name is Rion. I grew up in Lake Tahoe and have skied since I could stand. I came to Utah to attend college many years ago. College didn't last, but the skiing did. I now live at Alta and am the caretaker of the Redfern Chalet.

Why Alta:
The Redfern Chalet is a beautifully built, handsomely furnished, comfortable home in a stunning mountain setting. It offers the perfect environment for friends and family, with fantastic spaces, indoor and out for entertaining and relaxing, and a state of the art entertainment system in every room. Alta itself offers some of the best skiing on the planet. It is one of North Amercia's only ski-only resorts, and is regularly voted the leading resort for terrain and snow conditions in the world. For boarders, the neighbouring, connected resort of Snowbird offers fabulous, varied terrain. Alta has a fantastic ski school for young and old, where most of the instructors have 20 or more years of Alta experience under their belts. At the Alf Engen Ski School (www.alta.com) teaching younger children is a privilege, not a chore, as is offering real adventure and challenge to more experienced teen skiers under the expert supervision of really expert instructors. 'Alta is for Skiing' so, while Alta has a few authentic apré-ski spots, it does not even try to offer the high end shopping or dining experiences of tamer resorts. So arranging a local chef to cater at the chalet can be a wonderful and cost effective choice to get the most out of valuable time with friends and family. In the summer, the house offers a perfect base for trekking, mountain biking, climbing and other outdoor pursuits, or just a weekend escape from the heat of Salt Lake City.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Unique benefits? Alta powder! On average the last 10 years, there has been over 47 feet of the famously light Alta powder snow. That's 14 metres of snow for our European friends, and a hell of a lot of snow in any language… The incredible views - arguably the best in Alta - from our main deck and hot tub straight out to Mount Superior and down the Canyon. Magical at sunset! Look out for our live Red Fern House Mountain Cam link! The house is beautifully and generously equipped as a family home, not a rental. You will appreciate and enjoy the difference. Rion Martell, our caretaker, will be a fantastic helper during your stay and a deeply experienced guide to Alta and everything it has to offer.
