Why tom olexa chose Cottonwood Heights

Well... skiing,boarding,biking, hiking,cooking, and winning.

This is such a privilege to own this property. After skiing Boston Mills in Cleveland all our life (200 vertical ft.) this is an incredible place to enjoy great skiing and a great town.

We hope you will enjoy it also. We try to make it as close to home as possible. The hot-tub after a day of skiing is the best.

Inversion table for the post ski stretch.

Renting a car is the best way to go.

What makes this townhome unique

The condo location is perfect for the Salt Lake ski experience. Seated half way between big and little cottonwood canyons, 10-15 minutes to 4 resorts. Excellent grocery and restaurants within minutes.

TV in every room, premium cable (winter months). Wifi. 20% OFF SKI RENTAL

If you want to try the Park City, Canyons, or Deer Valley these are about 40 minutes around the next canyon. These areas have more of the classic ski town atmosphere. This area is a little more expensive and does not get as much snow.

You can also drive about 60 minutes and reach Powder Mountain and Snowbasin for another great adventure.

Best ever!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming out to Utah to ski for over 30 consecutive years, and this is the first place we want to return to again. It is better than pictured and described (not always the case, we have found in prior experiences). Our group of 9 appreciated the boot/glove dryers, the many bathrooms, the sunlit space, and the big common kitchen/dining space to hang out in. We never went out any evening as staying in was perfect (plus we were pooped from skiing and wilted after a glorious soak in the hot tub). Cooking for the group was easy with all the variety of pots, pans, appliances; and the stock that was in the pantry and 'spice' cabinet was much appreciated. It is nice that whoever cleans the unit between renters doesn't strip it bare. It is quiet, well situated, and comfortable for all. The owner was always quick to respond to questions as we approached our arrival. Definitely the place to stay for a large group. We would love to come back again next year.

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here every winter for the last 5 years and wouldn't stay anywhere else! The kitchen is awesome and the hot tub is great after a long day of skiing. It has everything you need and is the perfect location for skiing either canyon.

Great Condo Close to Alta/Snowbird

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The kitchen is huge and was a great place for everyone to hang out. Tom was a great host - sent us a discount to a rental place that was very close to the condo (and that everyone loved) and he responded promptly to correspondence. The four main bedrooms are very nice and comfortable. It was a little tight for 12 adults as the fifth bedroom on the first level is geared more toward kids (it would be ideal for 8 adults (4 couples) and up to 4 kids) but we made it work and had a great time!
