A March Stay...
Skiing was fabulous at both areas, Alta and Snowbird, and we took a day off in the middle and went hiking and climbing down near the base of the canyon - that was a nice rest? Break.
Had a great time in this unit. Had a blip with the water unit but was quickly addressed. Found it easier to drive 1/2 mile down the road for skiing at Alta then taking the public bus or even the shuttle, but any of these options works.
We stayed in Village at Sugarplum E, the place was ultra clean, convenient and updated. Gorgeous views and loved hearing the avalanche control explosions on powder days! Pictures on site do not do it justice.
No hot tub, but jet tub upstairs made up for it. A huge plus as we were debating cheaper in-valley options, was the traffic back down the canyon after skiing. Back up was insane, we got to observe it from the window with a drink in hand, apetizers and fireplace going!! Was worth the extra few bucks!
Thanks for the memorable stay!!
The Village at Sugarplum unit 14 is exceptionally comfortable, with an excellent living/dining area that easily accommodated our five adults. Wood fireplace and outdoor hot tubs are a big plus. We skied in/out to Snowbird. Very easy shuttle to Alta picks up right in front of unit with only a cell phone call. Excellent ski condo for both Alta and Snowbird.
Pure Skiing Experience and Excellent Service
We are not interested in nightlife but rather a more pure skiing experience which is why we love Alta. What does catch our attention to is knowing that the people we have to deal with are responsive and that we can rely on them from afar (when making reservations) and in all contingencies (must know everything about the property and mountain conditions). You have two absolute stars in your reservations team and your Hellgate crew; we count on them and value their excellent service.
Exceeded our Expectations
We booked and stayed at Sugarplum Townhouse 3 overlooking the gorgeous Snowbird resort. The condo was impeccably cleaned. It's probably the cleanest we have stayed at. We have rented various ski in/out condos at Big Bear (CA), Mammoth (CA), BrianHead and Eagle Point. By far the service, location and staff at Canyon Service are the BEST. This unit is very family friendly, kids were able to stay at their own floor while the adults enjoy some peace and quiet. The beds were soft and warm. Kitchen had plenty of pots/pans and cooking seasoning so you don't have to buy ahead. We literally walked out the unit, walked to end of drive way, across the street is the ski trail which takes you to Chickadee lift at Snowbird. The condo offers complimentary shuttle service and most of the time driver arrives at the door within 3 mins. We will definitely book ALL our UT vacations thru Canyon Services. Wish they can be every ski resort to take care of us.
