About the property

Studio condo between Alta & Snowbird Ski Resorts with Spectacular Views

This luxurious studio condominium comfortably sleeps 2 and is located in the highly desirable Blackjack Lodge in Alta. An elevator provides easy access to the condo on the 3rd floor. Blackjack Lodge is ideally located between the Alta and Snowbird ski resorts. You can ski-in and ski-out to Snowbird, depending on snow conditions, and ski home from Alta if you are comfortable skiing off piste and know the way home. A free ski shuttle runs between the lodge and both Alta ski area bases daily from mid-December thru mid-April to get you to and from the slopes. Dining options abound and are only minutes away at either Alta or Snowbird. If you don't feel like driving, or shuttled up from the airport, for a small fee 'Canyon Transportation Inc' can provide you with transportation between the Blackjack Lodge and the resorts from 5-11 pm. It’s literally just a few minutes drive to either resort. Whether you rent a car or drive to Alta in your own vehicle, 4 wheel drive is recommended as Little Cottonwood Canyon is often restricted to 4 x 4 or chains during a storm cycle which is why Alta is 'Rated #1 for Snow' year after year in major ski publications like SKI and POWDER Magazines.

In addition to your fabulous on mountain experience, are the spectacular Mt. Superior, Hellgate Cliffs and down canyon views from this condo. After a full day on the mountain, returning to this condo, relaxing in front of the fireplace and watching the sunset over the Wasatch mountains will complete your day. Little Cottonwood canyon is truly an amazing place and Mt. Superior, one of the most photographed mountains in the world, is literally right outside your window.

The condo has recently been totally remodeled and includes a fully equipped kitchen with custom knotty alder cabinetry, granite countertops, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, Wolf electric cook top and full size convection oven. There is radiant heated travertine tile flooring in the entry, kitchen and bathroom. Premium wool carpet covers the living area floor. Nothing feels better than returning after a full day on the mountain, removing your boots and stepping into the condo on the heated floor to warm your feet. There is a wood burning fireplace, with free firewood provided, a queen size Murphy bed, full size sofa sleeper, flat screen HDTV with Satellite Direct TV, a DVD player and free wi-fi. Additionally, there is a free washer & dryer on each floor, an exercise room on the main floor, Men’s and Women’s saunas on the 2nd floor and a common lounge area on the main floor with a fireplace, computer/printer and additional free wi-fi. A private ski locker with a Master combination lock is also provided in the locker room on the main floor for your ski gear.

This is truly a one of a kind property in Alta and the 2013-2014 season was the first season this condo has been available for rent. It truly is a Powder Paradise.

About Steve

I first came to Alta with a couple ski buddies for a weeks vacation in the mid-70's after graduating from college. We stayed a week in one of the lodges after which my buddies flew home to their families and jobs. I just couldn't leave so I got a job at the GMD lodge and stayed 5 years. Needless to say my parents were not happy I was ski bumming with a college degree they had paid for. Truth is Alta had gotten in my blood in 1 short week. When I eventually did leave I vowed to somehow try to return to Alta. After going back to school and then entering the real job world I met my future wife. I had to bring her to Alta to see if we were really compatible. She fell in love with Alta immediately and we eventually started coming to Blackjack Lodge on our ski vacations. We like to cook so the idea of having our own kitchen, fireplace and no schedule for meals was a no brainer. In 1998 a studio came up for sale and we bought it sight unseen. We have been enjoying this powder paradise ever since.

If you decide to come to Alta and stay at Blackjack I'm sure you won't be sorry. If you have any questions I will be glad to try to answer them, if I don't know the answer I'll find out for you. If you want to know the way to ski home from Alta I can definitely help you with that , please feel free to ask me anything you like, I'll be happy to talk to you!!

Great location for skiing either Alta or Snowbird

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay in this particular condo unit and we love it. It is very well maintained, has a lovely view and is an ideal location to ski the Little Cottonwood area. The owner was very responsive to any requests that we had.

Great studio condo in a perfect location for skiing Alta and Snowbird.

  • 5 of 5

My son and I traveled to Utah for his 18th birthday to ski Alta and Snowbird. The Blackjack studio condo was perfect size and location for our trip. The condo is perfect for 2 to 3 people with one queen and a pull out couch. The furnishings are all updated and well done. I would recommend this condo for anyone that loves skiing. Location, views, and flat out two great mountains to explore.

Perfect Ski In Ski Out

  • 5 of 5

Friend and I had great time staying here while skiing for 3 days. The condo was very clean and updated. It was in perfect location between Snowbird and Alta. Steve, owner, was very responsive to any questions we had and even took time to meet us the day of our arrival (as well as provide advise when we got interlodged!). Highly recommended to any one seeking a great ski in ski out place!
