The space

An oasis of luxury amid snow-capped slopes, every inch of this four story residence has been thoughtfully arranged to take advantage of the sensational surroundings, balancing style, comfort, and functionality for up to 19 guests. Each of the six bedrooms is equipped with top-of-the-line linens, piles of plush pillows, and ample closet space. Every bathroom features marble surfaces and modern fixtures and is fully stocked with oversized cotton towels and toiletries (bath gel, shampoo, conditioner) to make packing lighter. There are four bedrooms on the second floor of the home. Bedroom 1 has three queen beds, while bedrooms 2, 3 & 4 boast en suite bathrooms and two twin beds each. The fourth floor has an additional two bedrooms. Bedroom 5 holds two twin beds, and bedroom 6, the master suite, features two queen beds and an en-suite bathroom. The two twin beds in bedrooms 2, 3, 4, and 5 can be combined to create one king bed. In addition to the permanent beds, a high-end air mattress is also available to create a sleeping configuration that best suits your group. The house’s common spaces are designed for large groups to gather and relax while still taking advantage of all the natural world has to offer. On the second floor there is a rec room with cozy seating area and TV. On the third story, every living space optimizes the natural beauty beyond the walls with panoramic windows offering exclusive views of Blackjack Ridge. The open-concept living/kitchen/dining area is the ideal place to swap stories of the day’s adventures. Enjoy breathtaking mountain scenery while reclining in the Great Room’s generous leather sofas, with a morning cup of coffee in the dining nook, or over a sumptuous evening meal in the large formal dining room. Cook up a storm in the state-of-the-art kitchen, complete with double oven range, wine fridge, and large kitchen island. Warm up with a good book in front of the gas-powered fireplace after a day of skiing or snowboarding. After an exhilarating day on the slopes, stargaze from the marble-clad soaking tub, or contemplate the pine from the luxury glass-enclosed standing shower. Outside on the wrap-around deck, drink in the vistas from the 8-person hot tub while a steak sizzles on the grill. Other features include elevator access to every level in the house from the first floor’s heated entrance; coat and boot storage in the large entryway closet; ski/snowboard storage is available in the two-car attached garage; additional parking on the heated driveway for 2 vehicles; laundry (washer/dryer/iron); and high speed internet/wifi.

Guest access

The entire condo is for your enjoyment.

Interaction with guests

You will have complete privacy here. That said, should you need anything, we are always available via Airbnb messenger or phone.

Other things to note

Check-in is anytime after 4:00pm and check-out is no later than 10:00am. We have to firmly keep to these times as our housekeepers require ample time to prepare for your arrival. 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.

The neighborhood

Home to some of the “best snow on Earth” in the winter months, Blackjack Ridge is a skier and snowboarder’s paradise. In summer and spring, snowmelt reveals a whole new season of outdoor activities for every skill level and interest. Discover the growing network of trails allowing bikers, hikers, and climbers access to unparalleled views of the ridge, or hunt for owls and other feathered friends, guided by experts. Take advantage of the varied summer calendar, crammed with events including concert series, festivals, writing workshops, and children’s activity days.

Getting around

From December to early March, guests can enjoy ski in/ski out access to Snowbird on intermediate to advanced skier-made trails, 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.

The property includes access to two garage parking spots and uncovered space for up to two additional vehicles, but it is important to us that guests make an informed decision regarding transportation to and from the lodge. 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 available through a local firm at additional cost.

If damage is discovered, we will provide you with an itemized list of the damages and will assess the cost required to cover damages by charging the credit or debit card you use at checkout. If there is no damage, we will erase your credit card information from our system. This is thankfully very rare, but we want to make sure we’re clear with every guest on our policy!

We were visiting for a family reunion and could not have picked a more impressive place to stay. This place is beyond grand, from the hot tub to the leather furniture to the home's massive size. Kitchen was perfect for our large group and the wine
