Description of the Snowbasin vacation condo rental
Amenities: Balcony, jacuzzi tub, DVD player, 3-4 person private hot tub on balcony, satellite TV in each bedroom, full kitchen, gas fireplace, high-speed internet, views of Mt. Ogden and Pineview lake, washer/dryer.
Year-round recreation and relaxation opportunities abound!
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 Wolf Mountain (formerly 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.
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. Flyfishermen can find great holes on the three main streems 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 activties to help tailor your stay to the specific experience you are seeking.

Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Snowbasin, Utah
December 29, 2012
We stayed at the Burton Lodging with our small dog over Christmas and everything we needed was available in the condo. The kitchen was well stocked with more amenities than listed on the site. Loved the whirlpool bathtub in the master.

This place is a little piece of unspoiled paradise: a modern yet cozy apartment that feels like home, in an amazingly beautiful region both in the winter (great snow and skiing in Snow Basin) and in the summer (cute lake in the middle of the mountains). Check in is very convenient and the apartment has everything you need. Strongly recommended!
