Updated in 2017:

While on our annual family ski vacation we decided to remodel the house and make some upgrades to the kitchen and throughout the house. New in January are granite counter tops, new stainless steel refrigerator and stove / oven. Since we love to make smoothies and juices we purchased a high speed gourmet Blender by Blendtech. I have also really been into soups and purchased an Instapot electric pressure cooker for the vacation house (I have one at home and LOVE it) might find it useful and helpful as you throw ingredients together and have the soup ready when you get home from skiing. Some of the other new things that we have done is added a mudroom since all the coats, helmets, ski boots, and accessories needed an organized place to hang. We have refreshed all linens, rugs, new furniture and parlor sport games in the house. Enjoy!

Top 6 Important Things To Know:

1. Convenient location, 8 mile drive to slopes,.

2. Walk to Ski Shuttle

3. Private hot tub.

4. Spacious home with pool table and ping pong,

5. New Kitchen

6. We have one TV that is located in the living room.

Get ready for the ulitmate ski vacation house. We purchased this house in 2006. My husband is a ski prima donna and cares about ski location, he loves Alta. I am a 'ski enthusiast' by marriage and care about comfort and convenience. We found this gem of a vacation house which has the best of both worlds and is close to all of our favorite ski resorts Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton.

Top Ten Reasons Why We (and others) love this place:

1. Location tops the list. We are approximately 7 miles away or 20 minutes away from all four major ski resorts. I need to mention the location is really strategic for some skiers because often times in the ski season, Alta and Snowbird will get enough snow that they occasionally are forced to close down the road for several hours due to Avalanche control. On these days, we make a right out of the community and ski Solitude or Brighton which is nearly the same distance, it's really cool. You are located conveniently between 4 of Utah's best ski resorts.

2. Don't want to drive the car to the ski resort? It's easy enough to take the Ski shuttle bus which is steps away from the house and cost only a few bucks. My husband's ski 'thing' is that he has to wake up at the crack of dawn to be one of the first on the mountain to make fresh tracks on the snow. Me? Forget about it, I need to have my toasted english muffin and coffee, then I'll get in the car, put some chapstick on and meet him at the resort at my leisurely pace. This is a win win situation and everyone is happy, hooray!! The shuttle takes about 20 mins to get up the mountain and drops you off right at the slopes.

3. Private Garage. Remote control access to your own private garage that fits two full size vehicles. It may not seem like a big deal, but when it's snowing and you have already spent several hours in the snow, it's nice to click that button, drive straight in, close the garage door, and walk straight into the dry warmth of the house. It's a bonus not having to trek through the snow and park in a communal garage or on the street.

4. At the end of a powder ski day the only thing that any skier cares about is slipping into a comfy warm bed. The bed configuration is as follows:

Bedroom 1: One king - sleeps two

Bedroom 2: One Queen - sleeps two

Bedroom 3: Two Queens - sleeps up four

Bedroom 4: Four Twins (trundle bed) - sleeps four

House is designed to comfortably sleep 8.

5. Enjoy a glass of wine in front a warm and toasty fire place.

6. Laundry room located inside the house on the 2nd floor. Helpful for families with little ones or longer stays. We have laundry detergent available.

7. Entertain or cook your own gourmet meals in a fully-equipped kitchen. Everything from wine glasses, champagne flutes, coffee mugs for hot cocoa, pots and pans, utensils, tea kettle, tumblers, coffee pot, microwave, slow cooker crock pot, dishes etc...

8. Lots of space and lots of comfort equals good vacation. Enjoy nearly 3000 square feet of vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors. Plenty of room for the children to run around, play, and make lots of noise, especially in the 4th bedroom / recreation area. This home has a lot personal charm and is fully furnished with everything that you will need.

9. Complimentary hi-speed internet

10. Apres-Ski wouldn't be complete with out the ability to soak in a private jacuzzi with friends and family. This is a 5 person jetted hot tub and is located outside at the back of the house. Alternatively, you can take a quiet and relaxing bubble bath in the jacuzzi tub located in the masterbath.

The great thing about vacations is that you get to spend time with the people that matter most doing the things that you enjoy. The bummer about vacations is that they are always too short of a time span. Make your vacation arrangements in a fun, comfortable and convenient place. If our ski house sounds perfect for you and your family or friends, please email or give a call.

We would love to have you as our guest.

About Au-Co Mai

I love playing the guitar, hanging out with family and friends, cooking and gardening.

Au-Co Mai purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Au-Co Mai chose Salt Lake City

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! For the best powder conditions in the US, you have go to Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, and Brighton. An easy 8 mile drive. Make a left from the neighborhood, another left up the mountain and VOILA!!! You are ready for a powder play ground.

What makes this townhome unique

We are conveniently located by SKI BUS SHUTTLE which is an easy peasy 3 minute walk. See

The house is super spacious, private, quiet, and feels really cozy. While I need my space during down time, it's the perfect house for entertaining and hanging out with friends. Also bought a new hot tub and the basement is perfect for hanging out playing billards. It's my favorite place to get away during the winter.

The Property and Location Were Great

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. We were surprised when we arrived that the home did not have air conditioning. The evap cooler worked well except for a couple warm days. At night it was fine. Otherwise, the home was great and had everything we needed.

Good place to stay😀

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice place to stay. We really enjoyed it. I would stay there again. There were 9 of us and it would have comfortably slept 10. The only issue was there were no vents for air in the bedrooms so you had to leave all the doors open while sleeping. This wasn’t bad unless you were needing privacy. They supplied several fans to help in this case. I would recommend this place to anyone. The owner and manager were very nice to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you Angie! There are actually vents in the room. The house was built a while back, the vents are located on the floor not up towards the ceiling. Sorry for the confusion! The master bedroom door does have a lock on the door knob, but I will have the property manager check to see if it's working. Again thank you for your suggestions have an awesome summer!
