Ski season is almost over, but don’t let that keep you from daydreaming about the perfect ski chalet in Park City, Utah’s Deer Valley. Known as the best place to buy a luxury ski home, this area is full of multi million-dollar beauties that will make you bat your eyelashes. And, of course, you’ll have plenty to do with the annual Sundance Film Festival, too. Here are a few of our favorites that will be perfect to host a gaggle of snow bunnies for the perfect apres ski!
1) Amazing Canyons Ski Retreat
This home is so high end that the listing doesn’t even have an address. Located in the Canyons, this amazing chalet has nine bedrooms and 15 bathrooms over more than 15,000 square feet in an amazing 5-acre setting. This family legacy estate feels almost like a compound, really, with a courtyard around which several buildings circle. Listed for a whopping $26.2 million, you’d expect this home to have an amazing hot tub. Surprise, surprise: it does. (Fisher Group/Summit Sotheby’s International)
2. Empire Pass Chalet
I am in love with this place. You get a classic chalet profile on the exterior of this Red Cloud luxury ski home, but inside everything feels so modern. The master bath has an amazing infinity edge, allowing you to submerge your whole body while you admire the mountains outside. Listed for $13.5 million, 8 Ruby Hollow is my dream ski home! (Jess Reid Real Estate)
3. Contemporary Park Meadows With Huge Glass Wall
And now for something completely different. This Park Meadows contemporary ski home has an amazing wall of windows for some of the best views in the Mountain Top subdivision. I love the attention to detail and how completely different this home feels from the multitude of listings that imitate a traditional ski chalet. Listed for just $4.5 million, it’s pretty affordable as far as Park City luxury properties go. (Prudential Park City)
4. Jordanelle Ski Run
Views? This property has them. From this home you can see both the Jordanelle River and Park City proper in the distance. It’s very private, too, with neighbors out of viewing distance on three sides. It’s on the market for $8.495 million. (Summit Sotheby’s International)
5. Creme de la creme of Park City
Indoor pool? Check. Antler chandeliers? Check. $44 million views? Check. This home, which happens to be constructed from logs reclaimed from Yellowstone National Park, is the most luxurious Park City ski home on the market. It has 12 bedrooms and 16 baths on more than 60 acres. The owner is willing to subdivide the Upper Deer Valley property, or you can keep it all for a very private compound. (Summit Sotheby’s International)
We sure don’t hope he dropped out of the race because of this home. The Utah governor/ ambassador to China gets to ski in this $49.5 million Park City Utah ski compound when he hits the slopes. Huntsman’s father, businessman Jon Huntsman, Sr. is a billionaire and profoundly generous philanthropist who has given more than a billion dollars in donations over his lifetime. The senior Huntsman, a Morman, made his fortune through food packaging. According to Wikipedia, in 1974, Huntsman Container Corporation created the “clamshell” container for McDonald’s Big Mac and developed other popular products, including the first plastic plates, bowls and fast-food containers. He built this huge home in 1989 from Yellowstone reclaimed logs on a 60-acre bluff overlooking downtown Park City, one of my favorite ski areas where I will, in fact, be heading next month. This 20,000-square-foot spread includes 12 bedrooms, 16 baths, an indoor swimming pool, a game room, and a gym, along with huge entertaining spaces. There are two bunk rooms that can bed twenty. I imagine they ski at the Deer Valley Mountain Resort, which is just minutes away and the kind of place where they carry your skis at the end of the day. The home also has this amazing underground garage —no wait, TWO amazing underground garages — with parking for 26 cars between the two of them. Listed with Paul Benson at Summit/Sothebys for $49,5oo,000.
