Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chalet in Snowbird - Red Fern Chalet

5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom ski house with incredible decks and mountain views

The Red Fern Chalet is a beautiful hand crafted custom built ski home with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, open fire places, a number of decks and balconies including a mountain deck with a hot tub, garage, private parking, and boot room. It has a ground level, effectively self contained, with 1 bedroom (and one double sofa bed) a kitchen and bathroom. This makes the house perfect for two families sharing.

The Red Fern is located between world famous powder ski resorts of Alta and Snowbird with incredible panoramic mountain views, particularly from the main deck. The resort enjoys incredible skiing conditions year in, year out with an average of about 50 feet of snow per annum over that last 10 years (that's more than 14 metres).

In the Summer months it's a stunningly beautiful, creekside location and an ideal base for hiking, climbing, camping and all other outdoors pursuits that Utah State has to offer.

At any time of the year, the Red Fern is a terrific environment to unwind. It has been furnished with comfort and cosiness in mind and does not have that 'rental property' vibe. The Red Fern is generously equipped with an extensive library, hundred of games, and an amazing entertainment system reaching every room and living area. The kitchen is fully equipped for the most ambitious chef.

Rion is our caretaker, part-time snow reporter and one of the younger, old timers at the Alf Engen Ski School. When he is not testing the appetite of advanced pre-teen and teenage skiers for adventures off the beaten trail at Alta and Snowbird, he is there to make your stay as fun and carefree as possible. He knows the resort as well as anyone and will be happy to help you with any questions or queries from booking a chef or a masseur or a restaurant, to introducing you to Dr Ken at the Alta Clinic if you get bitten by an Alta snow snake and twist a knee. He can arrange transport from the airport or into Salt Lake for excursions, food shop for your arrival and organise housecleaning, all depending on how exactly you want and enjoy it.

Welcome to the Red Fern! Welcome to Alta!

Alta is for Skiing!

Keep Alta weird!

About Rion Martell

My name is Rion. I grew up in Lake Tahoe and have skied since I could stand. I came to Utah to attend college many years ago. College didn't last, but the skiing did. I now live at Alta and am the caretaker of the Redfern Chalet.

Rion Martell purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Rion Martell chose Utah

The Redfern Chalet is a beautifully built, handsomely furnished, comfortable home in a stunning mountain setting. It offers the perfect environment for friends and family, with fantastic spaces, indoor and out for entertaining and relaxing, and a state of the art entertainment system in every room.

Alta itself offers some of the best skiing on the planet. It is one of North Amercia's only ski-only resorts, and is regularly voted the leading resort for terrain and snow conditions in the world. For boarders, the neighbouring, connected resort of Snowbird offers fabulous, varied terrain. Alta has a fantastic ski school for young and old, where most of the instructors have 20 or more years of Alta experience under their belts. At the Alf Engen Ski School teaching younger children is a privilege, not a chore, as is offering real adventure and challenge to more experienced teen skiers under the expert supervision of really expert instructors.

'Alta is for Skiing' so, while Alta has a few authentic apré-ski spots, it does not even try to offer the high end shopping or dining experiences of tamer resorts. So arranging a local chef to cater at the chalet can be a wonderful and cost effective choice to get the most out of valuable time with friends and family.

In the summer, the house offers a perfect base for trekking, mountain biking, climbing and other outdoor pursuits, or just a weekend escape from the heat of Salt Lake City.

What makes this chalet unique

Unique benefits?

Alta powder! On average the last 10 years, there has been over 47 feet of the famously light Alta powder snow. That's 14 metres of snow for our European friends, and a hell of a lot of snow in any language…

The incredible views - arguably the best in Alta - from our main deck and hot tub straight out to Mount Superior and down the Canyon. Magical at sunset! Look out for our live Red Fern House Mountain Cam link!

The house is beautifully and generously equipped as a family home, not a rental. You will appreciate and enjoy the difference.

Rion Martell, our caretaker, will be a fantastic helper during your stay and a deeply experienced guide to Alta and everything it has to offer.

Beautiful house. Wonderful long weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for President's weekend, a reunion of a ski group we had in highschool 20 years ago. It is a great house stocked with everything you could possibly need and really conveniently located close to the slopes. And Rion, the caretaker is a great bonus. So attentive and helpful and really cares about making your stay memorable.

What a week.

Would Give it 6 Stars If I Could

  • 5 of 5

I am 32 and never wrote a review for anything. I often read these prior to a stay at a hotel, visit to a restaurant, activities, etc. etc. But I personally never write a review after my experiences...

However, my experience at the Red Fern House warrants a glowing review. The house is beautiful, comfortable, clean, practical, high tech, and all around incredible. But the best part of the Red Fern House is the manager, Rion. I booked for three days for a group of 9 guys. I booked 3 months in advance and had the privilege of communicating with Rion as often as I wanted prior to my arrival. He was responsive and informative to every request. When we arrived, he was beyond accommodating. Very professional, amicable, and always reachable. He even accompanied one of the guests to a nearby supermarket opened late one evening.

In addition, the hot tub needed a tweak one night and he worked diligently to fix it (and he did within minutes). If you want someone to clean the house during your stay, a private chef, or any other accommodation, Rion will provide you with all the necessary details. You don't often find this type of attention and it significantly enhanced our stay.

I recommend this house for every type of group, whether a guys/girls-getaway, a family trip, business trip, etc. It covers all and Rion only makes it better.

Excellent palace with great amenities. We will definately enjoy this place again. It accommodated the 12 of us very comfortably and the pick-up shuttle service worked very well. The SuperBowl was nicely visualized in the awesome entertainment room. The hot-tub was perfect (and large enough for all) with great views. Rion did a perfect job seeing to all our needs! We recommend highly!!

The house was great!. I especially liked the outdoor hot tub with heated tiles around it. Rion, who manages the house, was very helpful and friendly.
