About Julie Ponder

We are the Ponder family, we first fell in love with Park City in 1996 and built our dream home, the High Life in 2014.

Julie Ponder purchased this house in 2014

Why Julie Ponder chose Colony at White Pine Canyon

We owned another vacation home in Park City and fell in love with the Colony, where we built our dream ski in/ ski out home that we now live in full time. We occasionally rent our home so we can share our love of the mountain with others!

What makes this house unique

We always skied through the Colony and dreamed that one day we might live here, so we finally made that dream a reality and want to show others why we love Park City and this neighborhood!

Beautiful Family Ski Home

  • 5 of 5

The house sits at around 9,000 feet at the top of the Colony, a gated community between the Canyons and Park City. It is beautifully designed, with views to the valley from all major rooms, and centers around an open plan kitchen / living / dining space with a soaring fireplace. It is ski in / ski out to Winter Way, a blue run that leads to the Dreamscape and Day Break lifts, and is a about a 15 minute drive to the base and 20 minutes to Park City. Anyone renting in the ski season would be well advised to get a good four wheel drive, as the snow fall in the week we visited was spectacular. The owner was very helpful in getting us set up for the visit, and extremely responsive when we were there. I could not recommend anywhere more highly for a memorable family ski vacation.

Family vacation plus wedding

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as promoted on VRBO, beautifully appointed and the hosts were most accommodating. We were fortunate enough to get fresh snow for our first day of skiing which lasted just about until we left that following Sunday. While we were there we had a wedding, small, 12 person but the house was the perfect chapel for us with the views behind us.

I would definitely recommend staying here for a family outing. Lots to do and great location.

Our family vacation in a beautiful mountain home in Park City, Utah

  • 5 of 5

Our group was made up of 11 family members, including 3 children, everyone had a fantastic vacation and we enjoyed the family gatherings above all. The house had plenty of room and ammenities for our entire party and the owners were particularly attentive to all of our needs, I would recommend the place to my friends and/or family. We dined out twice during our week long stay and both restaurants were located in Park City, they are children friendly and excellent restaurants, these were Riverhorse restaurant located in Main Street and J&G Grill at the St. Regis Hotel. If you want to have a real vacation try to hire the cleaning service for the house during your stay, they do a wonderful job and you can concentrate your efforts on having fun and not cleaning up.
