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.

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!!

A refreshing getaway
The condo was welcoming from the moment we stepped inside. A comfortable home to return to after a day of skiing Alta and Snowbird. It is very quiet and perfectly appointed — everything from the kitchen appliances to the carpet and bed are high-end and. The studio has been so well designed - it was more than enough space for the two of us. We loved the short walk to ski into Snowbird and the 2 minute drive to park at Alta (or there’s a shuttle bus). We will definitely be back - thanks for making our stay so easy and wonderful Steve!
Thank you Betsy for your wonderful review and for taking such amazing care of our condo. We would love to have you return in the future.
Great location very functional condo
We had a great trip.....this condo is right between Alta and Snowbird...so perfectly located. We also went up to solitude. We would come down into Salt lake neighborhoods for dinner and massages so all was Great!!! Owner Steve was easy to work with.
Gourmet Kitchen with excellent Mt Superior Views
Love this condo. Great location between Snowbird and Alta. If you take the Canyon Transportation from airport and have no car us, condo is easily serviced by Town of Alta shuttle, Snowbird Valet Subaru and Snowbird ski out to trails. Loved the kitchen - gourmet Subzero, Wolf stove, and silent dishwasher. We are big cooks and were amazed how well equipped the kitchen is from fantastic appliances to blenders, toasters, pots pans, all type of knives and kitchenware. Pleasure to make dinner every night after a fantastic ski day. The views of Mount Superior are awesome and fun to watch the skiers hike to peak. Everything is high end and quiet.
Thanks for taking the time to review our condo Janice we appreciate it and are glad you enjoyed your vacation !
Great spot for 2 people enjoying Snowbird-Alta
Thank you Steve for the beautiful studio and ease of accommodation. The condo remodel was well done with great materials and the kitchen was all set up to cook or hang out on the bar stools.
I really appreciate the easy ski in and out location and password entry.
And, the skiing was the usual - kick ass. Great time.
Everything you need in a small ski condo
The studio condo is small but everything you need for a great ski weekend. A well appointed kitchen was great for cooking in and the access to both Alta and Snowbird couldn’t be better. Steve is easy to communicate with.
It was a perfect condo and the owners were helpful and attentive
If you want to take a break from skiing and pamper yourself during your vacation, Blackjack Lodge is just minutes away from the Cliff Lodge at Snowbird. For a small day use fee you can enjoy their world class spa facilities, including a fully equipped fitness center, lap pool and hot tub on the roof, salon, steam room and a wide range of exercise, stretching and yoga classes.
