The Red Fern Chalet is a beautiful hand crafted custom built ski home with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, open fire places, a number of decks and balconies including a mountain deck with a hot tub, garage, private parking, and boot room. It has a ground level, effectively self contained, with 1 bedroom (and one double sofa bed) a kitchen and bathroom. This makes the house perfect for two families sharing.
The Red Fern is located between world famous powder ski resorts of Alta and Snowbird with incredible panoramic mountain views, particularly from the main deck. The resort enjoys incredible skiing conditions year in, year out with an average of about 50 feet of snow per annum over that last 10 years (that's more than 14 metres).
In the Summer months it's a stunningly beautiful, creekside location and an ideal base for hiking, climbing, camping and all other outdoors pursuits that Utah State has to offer.
At any time of the year, the Red Fern is a terrific environment to unwind. It has been furnished with comfort and cosiness in mind and does not have that 'rental property' vibe. The Red Fern is generously equipped with an extensive library, hundred of games, and an amazing entertainment system reaching every room and living area. The kitchen is fully equipped for the most ambitious chef.
Rion is our caretaker, part-time snow reporter and one of the younger, old timers at the Alf Engen Ski School. When he is not testing the appetite of advanced pre-teen and teenage skiers for adventures off the beaten trail at Alta and Snowbird, he is there to make your stay as fun and carefree as possible. He knows the resort as well as anyone and will be happy to help you with any questions or queries from booking a chef or a masseur or a restaurant, to introducing you to Dr Ken at the Alta Clinic if you get bitten by an Alta snow snake and twist a knee. He can arrange transport from the airport or into Salt Lake for excursions, food shop for your arrival and organise housecleaning, all depending on how exactly you want and enjoy it.
