|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Come discover pristine Ogden Valley and the legendary Snowbasin Resort from the comfort of this luxury condo on the shores of Pineview Lake!
Launch your boat from the convenience of a ramp just a minute away. Walk down to the sandy beach from your front door. Relax in your own private hot tub overlooking the lake and Wasatch Mountains.
Year-round recreation and relaxation opportunities abound!
In the winter, our condo is the closest accommodation to Snowbasin Ski resort--a great alternative to the crowds of Park City. Cross-country ski or snowshoe from you doorstep. Ski or snowboard at Snowbasin Ski resort--famous for it's 5-star lodges, Olympic Downhill runs, and powder reserves. Seriously, on a powder day, you'll still be
making fresh tracks at Snowbasin in Utah's fluffy powder while other resorts are completely tracked out. (Stay with us and I'll gladly direct you to out-of-the-way powder pockets or the best runs for your specific skill level.)
For a change of scenery, you can try out the low-key, low-cost resorts of Powder Mountain or Nordic Valley--both located within 15 minutes of the condo. These resorts offer night skiing and Wolf Mountain is consistently voted Utah's best-lit and most kid-friendly resort. For those who really want to avoid the crowds, world-class backcountry skiing can also be found within minutes.
Skiing isn't the only draw to Huntsville in the winter. You can enjoy ice skating on Pineview Lake in mid-December, shortly after the freeze-up occurs. Once the lake ice is covered in snow, you can still skate and play pick-up hockey at the quaint ice rink in Huntsville Park. Pineview Lake also offers first-rate ice fishing for trout
and crappie during the winter months. For the power-sports enthusiast, the world-famous snowmobile trails of Monte Cristo are only a 20 minute drive. Just down the street is a snowmobile rental shop.
After your activity-filled day, relax in your own hot-tub on the condo's private balcony, surrounded by the evening mountain scenery. For nightlife, Utah's oldest continuously-operating pub, the Shooting Star Saloon, is 5 minutes away in Huntsville town. A scenic canyon drive to the city of Ogden offers the full array of nightlife options. Check out historic 25th street which boasts ethnic restaurants, it's own microbrewery, and live music at various venues. The Egyptian Theater nearby screens films each year as part of the Sundance Film Festival. Salomon Center in Ogden has indoor skydiving, a climbing gym, and a flowrider indoor surfing facility.
Pineview Lake is the main attraction to Ogden Valley during the summer. During the spring months, when the valley is verdant and the mountains still snow-covered, you can actually waterski and snow ski in the same day. Launch your boat at the mini-marina 2 minutes away from the condo. Walk down to the sandy beach from your doorstep. Some of the best windsurfing & kitesurfing in Utah is found in the afternoons at the Ogden Canyon inlet. Fisherman can find plenty of success in the shallows fishing for trout, crappie, bass, and tigermuskie. Fly fishermen can find great holes on the three main streams that feed into the lake. A system of both well-developed and rustic trails are all within minutes of the condo for mountain biking and hiking. Hike or bike to the
summit of Mt. Ben Lomond and soak up panoramic views of the Great Salt Lake. Or take a horseback excursion from the Red Rock Ranch just minutes from the condo.
Summer also brings small-town events and festivals to the valley. Take a ride in a hot-air balloon as part of the famous Ogden Valley Balloon Festival held each August. Experience a step back in time with the small-town 4th of July festivities at Huntsville park. You can even watch the firework show from directly from the beach. Huntsville also hosts several races each year, including traditional and off-road triathlons and the
Ogden Marathon. For a cultural experience, go buy some famous honey from the quaint Ogden Valley Trappist Monastery and listen to the daily chants; or take a tour of the historic David O. McKay home. Renowned local artists display their Western artwork at the Huntsville Library gallery or in their own studios by appointment.
As you can probably tell, I was born and raised in Ogden Valley. I'd love to be your host as you discover this winter wonderland and year-round escape. I am always happy to share insider advice with you on slopes, restaurants, nightlife, trails, and activities to help tailor your stay to the specific experience you are seeking.
Hope to see you soon!

Matthew Burton purchased this condo in 2007
Modern and cozy apartment that feels like home in an amazingly beautiful region both in the winter (great snow) and in the summer (cute lake in the middle of the mountains). Strongly recommended!
The owner Matthew is very attentive, we had a small issue with the jacuzzi and he had someone come out and fix it within an hour. The condo was very well appointed and very comfortable. Great location, close to everything the area has to offer. We look forward to coming back for the snow season.
The condo is spacious and well-maintained in a quiet complex (at least it is very quiet in mid-May!), and close to lots of places to visit. The area is beautiful with a lake view and trails all around. Our dog was very sad to leave! Good eats nearby - Luis's restaurant has amazing Mexican food! Only one problem. There is a huge, low-hanging chandelier over the dinner table. If you are tall and forgetful (me!), you whack your head multiple times getting up from the chair before you learn to duck.
Our experience was wonderful and we'll gladly do it again next time we're in the area. Matthew was incredibly helpful and accommodating, even though we arrived last minute on Thanksgiving day!
