About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Alta and Snowbird ski resorts are legendary for their powder snow and terrain. Intermediate skiers can ski all the black diamond trails because one can get a firm edge on the packed powder! Icy conditions are rare. This condo is a perfect location with Utah's best ski resorts that are only minutes away.

We recently purchased this condo and have added new furniture, window blinds, unique decor, art work and a new fireplace to to give this town home a rustic mountain cabin feeling. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with beautiful knotty alder cabinets, stainless appliances and glass top stove, and tile floors. There is everything you need to fix gourmet meals after a wonderful day of skiing. We even offer service to stock the condo with food and beverage to get you started on your fantastic vacation.

This town home has one king size bed in the master bedroom with an adjoining loft that has a futon. There is a queen size bed in the second and third bedroom. The fourth bedroom has a full size bed in addition to a bunk bed. There is a futon in the family room making the bed total nine.

This condo has a private hot tub in the back yard patio where you can relax and sooth your sore muscles after the best skiing experience you can imagine. While sitting in the hot tub you can enjoy the beautiful mountain views. An entertainment area is set up in the family room that includes a small pool table set and card table with poker chips, cards, puzzles, coloring books and crayons, and board games.

La Caille restaurant is only 1/2 mile away and is one of the top ten restaurants in the country. Grocery stores are only 1.5 miles away and budget restaurants abound in all the shopping areas nearby. There are movie theaters and entertainment areas throughout Sandy and Salt Lake City.

We also own several condos in Park City seen on VRBO #4501 and VRBO 197811. We finally decided to have a condo at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon to be close to the best powder skiing in the world. We are so excited to have this condo in a perfect location that can offer truly discount rates from the resorts.

If you are a serious or beginner skier and want to ski the best resorts in the USA, this is your place. The base elevations are higher than most other ski resorts. Our Utah license plates say, 'The Greatest Snow On Earth.' It is true. And our location is the best place from which you can ski northern Utah.

About Anne Linder

We absolutely love Utah and have lived here 33 years Coming from California and Phoenix which are are also great places to live but they do not hold a candle to Utah. We moved here in 1978 and skied our brains out. We know for a fact that Utah has 'The Greatest Snow on Earth.' Do you want to know how close you are to Alta? I trained salesmen for Johnson and Johnson. The closest hotel to my house was Snowbird! You are a mile above us and even closer. We always wanted to buy at Canyons Place because we could offer true discounts at one third the rates of the resorts. We have made many friends with our condos at Park City. If you need any references those can be supplied. We have been in this business since 2000. Come ski 'The Greatest Snow on Earth.'

Anne Linder purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Anne Linder chose Utah

We bought this townhome because it is the best location to ski all of Utah's northern ski resorts. We can tell you how to ski Alta and Snowbird and be back at the condo by 1:00 PM. You will be exhausted and ready for a hot tub and then a train ride to Salt Lake City. La Caille is one half a mile away and you should dine here at least one night. It is one of the top ten restaurants in the United States.

What makes this townhome unique

The Salt Lake City area, Park City, Heber City and Midway offer the best golfing in the country for the price. Our condos in Park City are already booked for the summer of 2012 by golfers from all over the country.

You will be very comfortable with our summer rate especially if you are a golfer and a fisherman. You might be able to tell that we love it here.

great location for skiing Alta or Snowbird

  • 5 of 5

My family, 2 adults, and 5 kids (ages 18-26) had a great week here. It's a nice location for skiing. Alta was an easy 15-20 min drive. The owners were wonderful and allowed us to ship our 7 ski bags ahead, and put the bags in the garage for our arrival! The condo had plenty of space for everyone. We loved the boot warmers and the kids loved the hot tub. We enjoyed staying here, and would definitely stay again!

Great place to stay for skiing at Alta

  • 5 of 5

This townhome is perfect for a family ski vacation. There is plenty of space to spread out and relax after a day of skiing. We stayed here for a family ski trip with 3 adults and 4 teenagers and it would have been comfortable with more people. The house had everything we needed including a hot tub. Anne and Ray were great, making sure we had everything we needed.

Fabulous place for Alta Skiing

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well situated for ski resorts of small Cottonwood Canyon. About a 20 minute drive to Alta. The place is furnished nicely with comfortable fireplace and cozy areas for all family members. Great for families. The owners are also very responsive to needs of guests. Six adults and 4 teens had a great time.

Fantastic townhouse!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Anne and Ray for making our family trip to Cottonwood Canyon so wonderful. The townhouse was perfect for our group of five (we could have doubled the number and been comfortable) and felt like our home. It's clean, spacouis with many amenities. We enjoyed making meals in the well equipped kitchen and the hot tub right off the back. It was a perfect place to come back to each evening after great skiing in both Big and Littlewood Cottonwood Canyons. We will be back!

Great place for skiing Cottonwood Canyons

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our stay. Six of us stayed very comfortably. Three relatives came for dinner and we had plenty of room for everyone. The town home was fully equipped with everything we needed and more. Having a room dedicated for all our ski clothes complete with a boot/glove warmer/dryer made getting out to and in from the slopes a piece of cake. Great bedrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to feed the family and the game room meant kids could play while adults relaxed! Alta and Snowbird were just 15 minutes up the canyon and the commute form the airport was very easy. The owners were easy to work with. We will be back next year.

Best location for skiing and comfort like home

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for sharing your Canyon Place Town Home with my group last week.

We enjoyed 4 great days of skiing in the SLC area, and all agreed your place was the perfect lodging choice...

Plenty of room, good separation of sleeping areas, great common space, well equipped kitchen and comfortable seating and sofas with lots of pillows and blankets.

We all felt at home - which makes for a very relaxing vacation.

The location is great - perfect base for skiing resorts in both Cottonwood Canyons and easy access to the highway to Park City resorts.

You've got a gem of a place, priced reasonably and very well kept!

We will be back!
