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, impeccable unit and amazing view. Very convenient to Alta and Snowbird. We skied 2 days at each. The condo facility was very well maintained and took care of the little things like walking paths to and from the snowbird trails. Travelled with my 14 year old and the unit was perfect for us.

Steve was very easy to work with. He ensured we were set before, during and after our stay. it made our late arrival very simple and accommodated our late departure so we could get in a full day of skiing our last day. He was always responsible via email.

Highly recommend and this will be my #1 option on any return trip to Little Cottonwood canyon.

Great Alta Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay in this wonderful condo while visiting Alta for a long weekend of skiing. It couldn't have been more perfect for a getaway for two - easy skiing access, amazing view, beautiful upgrades, cozy wood burning fireplace, heated floors - everything has been thought of and there was nothing we needed that was not included, even down to the washer and dryer down the hall. We cooked dinner in a few nights and enjoyed the fire at the end of the day. We had a great first experience skiing Alta and enjoyed our time relaxing in the condo too. Steve was very responsive and great to work with, even sent us tips and recommendations on dining, ski rentals, etc. since this was our first time to the area. Thanks for a wonderful visit, we hope to come back!

Excellent accommodations with ski in ski out access

  • 5 of 5

I usually do a lot of research when planning my trips before doing any bookings. I came across this property located right in between Alta and Snowbird and in the course of having made other reservations for this trip I forgot about the specifics of this rental and was really impressed when we arrived. The first inescapable thing you will notice is the view. Again, I totally forgot about that when booking. Your entire window view is taken up by some of the most spectacular views of Mt. Superior you will get anywhere! The condo itself has really appointed nicely and has everything a couple needs including a very nice kitchen with modern appliances, a fireplace and very nice modern bathroom. This condo has everything you'll need, is very close to both areas, and all the people in the condo complex we ran into were so nice and friendly. Steve was fantastic with all the directions, tips and was extremely responsive to all our requests and questions. I will certainly be booking here when we make our next trip to Snowbird!!! Thanks for everything Steve!

Fabulous Condo w/ beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fabulous condo with beautiful view! The condo was exactly how pictured and had top of the line furnishings and appliances throughout. Even though we were on vacation we felt right at home at this property. We love to cook so, it was wonderful being able to cook before my husband headed out on the slopes and then relax at night with the wood fire. The resort was super close so, I spent some time at the spa which was very nice. The owner was awesome to call when I asked to stay an extra night as I was sick. Very thoughtful and genuine owners! We will be back again!

Excellent Place to Stay in Alta

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful condo. The upgrades made it feel like a luxury home, and the view is breathtaking. It was immaculate throughout and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking. We arrived to a special wedding anniversary welcome of flowers and chocolate covered strawberries! Parking is convenient. Enjoyed drinks close by at the Cliff Lodge. Hope to return to stay here. Tami and Clay

Beautifully renovated "high end" studio. Very comfortable and my husband and I had everything we needed. Washer and dryer down the hall was very handy. Sauna and shower one floor below and place to store our stuff after check out was nice as our plane did not leave until midnight. There is a community room with fridge and microwave so we were even able to have a meal before we headed out. Very convenient to both Alta and snowbird (free shuttle to Alta and practically ski in /ski out to Snowbird). Owner Steve was great- he contacted us ahead of time to let us know we could check in early if we wanted and called later to make sure we had everything we needed.
