Location: Alta, Utah
Ski season is in full swing, and home-searching snow lovers should look no further than this unique property located just above the town of Alta, Utah. Designed by AIA architects Tracy Stocking and David Hunter and built in 1993, the four-bedroom, three-bath home is only accessible by ski, snowmobile, or snowshoe in the winter.
Fortunately, the listing comes with a 9-passenger PistinBully 100 snowcat that allows you to haul family, guests, and groceries to and from the house. This enviable location also lets you ski out the door and into Alta Ski Resort, an enviable feature given Alta’s limited ski-in/ski-out lodging options.
The 3,076-square-foot house is a modern take on ski luxury, boasting a two-story wall of windows in the great room with sunrise views of Sugarloaf and Greely Bowl. Built-in bookshelves, a large fireplace, and an easy-to-access ski and mud room add to the conveniences, as do heated sidewalks and patio outside.
Each bedroom features floor-to-ceiling windows to enjoy the outdoors, and despite the home’s remote location, it is still connected to public water, sewer, internet, TV, and telephone access. In the summer, you can access the home on a gravel road.
If this is the contemporary ski home you’ve been looking for, 8593 Albion Basion Road is on the market now for $3,900,000.
