1. Luxurious upscale studio condo (from USD 300)

Designed to host two guests and conveniently situated a short distance from the Snowbird ski resort, this studio condo is perfect for a couples’ getaway. It sits on the building’s third floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. Its interior was recently updated and you can tell from the moment you enter.

The condo, though a studio, is quite spacious and with massive floor-to-ceiling windows, the space seems even larger than it actually is. There are wood accents, especially in the kitchen, which bears a typical mountain cabin vibe. The sleeping area is set in between the living area and kitchen, acting as a sort of room divider, with a queen bed as its centerpiece. When you feel like simply lounging, hang out on the leather couch in the living room, a drink in hand and the stunning scenery as your view.

2. Ski chalet with excellent mountain views (from USD 1100)

Just like the cabin above, this one also has 5 bedrooms and it can host up to 10 guests. However, despite this similarity, both cabins have their own personalities, with this one bearing a more rustic country appeal. The interior is elegant and each room is exquisitely furnished, offering not just a space to lay your head but a place to call home when in Alta.

The owner hasn’t skimped on modern luxuries, offering creature comforts like a television in each bedroom, as well as in the living room. And, yes, there’s also an entertainment room on the upper floor, an ideal place to hang out after a thrilling ski expedition. If it isn’t too chilly outside, you could spend some time on the deck and enjoy the picturesque view of the mountain slopes.

3. Holiday chalet between Alta and Snowbird (from USD 1495)

Finally, this six-bedroom chalet could be your getaway home when you visit Alta. It’s a wonderful place to bring your friends or family and it is able to comfortably host 14 guests. Keeping up with the trend set by the other rentals on this list, this one also promises a luxurious stay. However, unlike the other cabins above, this chalet seeks to conceal the cabin aesthetic by opting for a more modern, city-like interior. For instance, rather than the typical wooden interior, here, the walls are clad in contemporary panels and painted in bright, vibrant colors.

This departure from the mountain vibe gives the chalet an urban aesthetic, but, with the slopes right outside your door, you won’t easily forget you’re in the mountains.

4. Luxury ski chalet in a quiet neighborhood

If a bigger rental is what you seek, check out this massive 5-bedroom mountain retreat, with the capacity to host up to 14 guests. Your ski trip will certainly be a memorable one when you stay here, with the ski areas of Mt. Superior found right outside your door. This quintessential mountain cabin is designed for cold winters, with fireplaces dotted around the interior, one of which is in the living area. Of course, you can also warm up in the hot tub, if you so wish.

The interior is quite expansive, both in height and floor area. The high ceilings facilitate huge windows which, during the day, let in floods of light. There are five master suites, each one boasting a queen bed, and there’s an extra room furnished with three bunk beds.

Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, perfect for families. Newly renovated kitchen.

5. Fabulous log cabin

Marshal your friends and set out for Alta. While in the area, make this log cabin your base, a home in the mountains and one that can easily host 10 guests. If you’re here in winter, you’ll get to enjoy the close proximity to the Alta ski lifts, which are just outside your door. And, when it snows, the stunning blanket of white completely engulf the landscape, creating a fairy-tale-like appeal.

The interior has an air of warmth and geniality, perhaps due to the wood finishes, the brightly lit spaces, or maybe because of the elegant, antique-like furniture. Whatever the case, you’ll love spending your vacation here, preparing your meals in the charming kitchen or simply soaking in the hot tub.
