Nestled in the slopes of the Blackjack Ridge, this unique home captures the authenticity of a western ski lodge, while providing the comfort and convenience of first-class modern amenities, including an outdoor hot tub and chef’s kitchen. With access to two world-renowned resorts, this space is an ideal setting for outdoor enthusiasts to indulge in a secluded, ski in/ski out getaway or a weekend retreat all year round.
Our 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is an homage to lodge living. The ~2,000 square feet lodge features wood and stone finishes bathed in natural light, allowing up to ten guests to enjoy the grandeur of Blackjack Ridge in comfort and style. All three bedrooms (with a total of 3 queen beds, 1 king) provide a restful retreat from a day outdoors. Each bedroom is equipped with top-of-the-line linens, piles of plush pillows, and walk-in closet space to store gear as needed. An air mattress is also available to create a sleeping configuration that fits your party’s needs. The three full bathrooms feature stone surfaces and modern fixtures. Each is stocked with oversized cotton bath towels and essential toiletry items for your convenience. Guests are also welcome to use the front-loading washer and dryer during their stay. Framed by stunning panoramic views of the ridge, common spaces are perfect for unwinding after a day of adventure. Outdoors, the hot tub and grill beckon sore muscles after a long day on the slopes. Savor your favourite grilled goodies or delight in a soothing soak to the tune of fresh mountain air on the spacious patio. Indoors, guests can enjoy an open layout living space that includes a kitchen, dining, and large sitting area. Sink into the oversized leather sofas while enjoying a movie on big-screen TV, or gather around the crackling fire (freshly stocked with split, dry wood) to enjoy a delicious home cooked meal, lively conversation, or board games with family and friends.
The entire property, including all indoor and outdoor spaces, is for your group’s enjoyment. Access to one garage parking spot is included.
Interaction with guests
The entire house is for your party’s enjoyment. We are available should you have any questions or needs during your stay.
Other things to note
The property includes access to one garage parking spot. This being said, it is important to us that guests make an informed decision regarding transportation during their stay. From mid-December through April, Snowbird receives an average of almost two feet of snow per week. Even moderate snowfalls may cause restrictions on the Little Cottonwood Canyon access road, permitting only 4-wheel drives or vehicles equipped with chains. Live updates of weather conditions and travel restrictions can be accessed via the CanyonAlerts page. Blackjack Ridge is truly a getaway. While access to the mountain is steps away from the front door, the same cannot be said about groceries and other supplies. Guests are strongly encouraged to arrive with any food, beverages, and general supplies they wish to enjoy during their stay. Grocery delivery and concierge services are made available through a local firm at additional cost. Payment is due in full at time of booking (no deposits or holds). Airbnb retains a separate security deposit in escrow which is fully refundable. If you have questions you need answered before securing your booking, or you simply want to talk with us first, please click my profile picture at the top of this listing and then click the “contact host” button to send an email directly to us.
With access to two world-class resorts, the Blackjack Ridge development offers outdoor adventure for every skill-level and interest all year round. Enjoy skiing the renowned slopes in the winter and hiking/biking/climbing in the spring and summer months.
From December to early March, guests can enjoy ski in/ ski out access to Snowbird and a complimentary shuttle service to and from Alta. The public UTA bus runs a free loop from Snowbird up to the Alta Bypass road and back every 30 minutes while the resort is open.
Although regarded as home to some of the “best snow on earth,” this area is so much more than a ski destination. Snowmelt reveals a whole new season of outdoor enjoyment for every skill level and interest. The area’s growing network of trails allows bikers, hikers, and climbers to enjoy the unparalleled views of the ridge during a short walk around the area, rappelling down an exposed rock face, or after a long, rewarding trek up one of the many peaks.
