The unit was nice enough and had a pretty well-equipped kitchen. I believe it was listed as 2.5 bathrooms, but it's actually three. Two bathrooms have full (gigantic, jacuzzi-size) tubs with showers and the third has just a shower. The view of the canyon y'all is great. We had trouble with the WiFi at first, but the management helped us out. I highly recommend having a car -- this place is near _nothing_ and relying on the shuttles is a pain (there always seems to be a "mixup"). Also, while you can technically ski into and out of the unit, it's not a simple matter to do (especially if you're a beginner), and could be more trouble than it's worth, even though you're paying the premium for it.

We really thank you for your review and comments. It is helpful to other travelers to see what guests says about certain aspects of our properties.
We always try to make sure that each guest is told that the "Ski-in/out" access is by way of skier-made, Intermediate and above ability trails. Our on-site managers make every effort to make sure that guests know where the access points are located and to make access as easy as possible. Our units are not marketed as "on-slope" properties - but they are pretty easy access to both Alta and Snowbird. We are sorry to hear that you had issues with the Alta Shuttle - it is usually so very reliable and flexible!
Alta and Snowbird are located in a beautiful, steep granite canyon, and it is a winter sports paradise. That said - there is little else in the canyon. At the Snowbird Center and Cliff Lodge, you will find a variety of restaurants and a few shops, as well as an elite Spa. Alta is made up of ski lodges, day lodges, ski shops and the Shallow Shaft Restaurant. It is not a bustling ski resort area. We do often recommend that families with small children may way to have a rental car (4 wheel drive is required) for convenience.
The saying "Alta is for skiers" is so totally true. If it is "nightlife" and shopping that a guest is primarily interested in - there are other resorts that will fit that bill - but Little Cottonwood Canyon is a place to "get away from it all".
Come for the snow. Come for the relaxation. Come for the silence and pristine beauty of winter. We hope you will come back to stay with us again. You are so correct, staying at Alta/Snowbird is not inexpensive - but the value is in the quiet beauty and solitude of our little piece of heaven on earth.

The condo that we stayed in was exactly what we expected.
Pros: Location ski on/ski off, good size, great property management staff, had everything we needed.
Cons: very dated (but we knew that going in, and it wasn't a big deal), small TV (my guess 27").
All and all a great place to stay, and we would absolutely come back. Read more
We so thank you for your review, and all of us at Canyon Services are glad you had a good time! It is always our pleasure to help our guests have a great experience when they visit Alta and Snowbird. We are constantly working to keep these properties updated and will share your comments with the owners. We all hope to see you again soon!

We had a great stay in a very clean and comfortable place. It is located about a 2 minute drive from alta and a 3 minute drive from Snowbird. It's an end unit, so the view was spectacular. Beds were very comfortable and furnishings were nice.
Canyon Services did a good job. They were solicitous, friendly and responsive. They bought us groceries and stocked them for a nominal fee (though the groceries themselves were much more expensive than what we are used to, so we will likely scale this back in the future). They came within minutes to fix our TV and cleaned the unit mid-week.
All in all a great stay!
Adequate for those who do more skiing than living inside.

On the smaller size but adequate. No big hot tub but 2 large bath tubs with jets that made for very roomy showers too. The TV screen is small (42"?) and there was no wifi router on premises. We were told to use whatever we can pickup from the other areas. Which worked out fine. This is good place for the price.

This condo was very clean, easy to find on the website and overall a wonderful stay. The rook leaked but they took care of that very quickly. It was a bit tricky to get to the trails but once we figured that out it was no problem. We loved the living area and all the bedrooms were comfortable. We only had 4 people there but it seemed like it would still be comfortable with more people. I would definitely recommend this unit!
great ski condo
