HELLGATE CONDOMINIUMS are located beneath the Hellgate Cliffs and this location may experience Interlodge more often than other areas. Due to the increased likelihood of interlodge or road closures at the Hellgate Condominiums we highly recommend travel insurance and of course, it is recommended for all guests stays. Please ask for information from your Reservations Specialist.
Interlodge is a restriction on outdoor travel and activity ordered by the Alta Town Marshall. The Marshal's office, and/or Snowbird Safety, may require, at any time, that guests stay indoors until avalanche control and road danger is mitigated. Sometimes it involves the whole Alta/Snowbird area and sometimes just certain sections in the canyon. The Alta Town Marshall and Snowbird Safety work hard to keep everyone in the area safe with little disruption to outdoor recreation.
We work with our guests during interlodge to ensure everyone is taken care of. Please know that these events are beyond our control in our winter playground. Usually avalanche work commences in the early morning hours and is completed by about 9 AM - but there are occasions when interlodge can be put into effect during the day and guests can be housebound for longer periods of time.
We have cribs/pack and plays and rollaway/aero beds available for a rental fee of $50 each per stay. If the property you are renting has a sofa sleeper and you will be using it for your stay the cost is an additional $50. Please let us know ahead of time and we will have the sofa sleeper made up for your arrival. Aero beds and cribs are available on a first come first served basis and when there is space in the condo or home you have rented. Please ensure you have made these arrangements at least 10 days prior to your arrival.

Unit a is very spacious and comfortable. It's very clean & easy to keep warm. We had a great stay.
Don't be fooled by online photos of communal hot tub. I thought it looked like a kid's wading pool but was pleasantly surprised. It was great!
Having ensuite bathrooms off both bedrooms was nice. Both were very clean & well stocked with towels, soap & toilet paper. The water is nice & hot & at good pressure.
The lounge is very comfortable & has nice views as do both bedrooms.
All the communal areas were very clean and tidy & we had zero issues with noise from other units.
The only minor quibbles we had were:
- no hairdryer though duty manager quickly rustled one up;
- lack of medium sized saucepans (only 2 small & 1 v large);
- internet service is a tad slow.
The duty managers were very good at warning us when "interlodge" lock down was likely. We did not have any problems with this despite 3 lockdowns during our weeklong stay. The danger zone was the S slope of nearby Mt Superior & the Hellgate condos are above that stretch. We could access the condos via the shuttle after the shuttle driver sought, & got, permission from the marshals & avalanche control. However, could be an issue for people intending to leave for SLC mid-afternoon.
Kudos to the alta shuttle drivers, Matt and Max. Very friendly, knowledgeable about the area & very prompt service.
Kudos also to duty managers, Will & Fred - very pleasant to deal with. Check-in was easy & the phone calls to warn about interlodge conditions were very useful.
The garage space was very clean & easy to access. The door appears to be a standard height so double check if you intend bringing a larger pickup truck (I know that the canopy on my F250 would not have fit through the door but it does need 7' clearance).
I would not recommend this unit to anyone who has a mobility problem since from the road you have to go down 4 flights of steps to reach the condo. Go easy as you are at a fairly high altitude.
It's true - it is hard to show how great the common-area hot tub really is...which is wonderful. It is spacious and in a great space - our guests love it!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!

We had a great time here. Everything was really nice. The people are great. Fred, Sara and Wendee in particular. My sons and I had a blast. Be aware that in Hellgate you are more apt to be interlodged due to the location so if you dont mind a later start (ninish) or snowed in for an entire day. In our case it was not a big deal because we got a day to hang out and just visit.
