Located in the snowy mountains of Alta, Utah, the spectacular Alta Ski Home isn't your typical alpine lodge--it's a home so remote that it's only accessible via ski, snowcat, snowmobile, or snowshoe in the winter, making for one supremely secluded luxury retreat.
Designed by AIA architects Tracy Stocking and David Hunter and built in 1993, the four-bedroom, three-bath home is spread out over 3,076 square feet, with floor-to-ceiling windows in each bedroom and a grand two-story wall of windows in the living room that looks out over stunning views of Sugarloaf and Greely Bowl.
The estate also features a large fireplace in the living room, heated sidewalks, a patio to take in the views, and a mudroom that you can ski from as soon as you step outside the door.
One of the coolest features of the Alta Ski Home is located right outside: The nine-passenger, fully-functioning PistinBully 100 Snowcat.
But the Snowcat doesn't come with the house just for fun -- it's literally a necessity for hauling your family, guests, and groceries up the snow-covered mountain to your remote home.
In the summer, however, a simple gravel road makes for easy access, though the Snowcat definitely seems like more fun.
For a stunning ski chalet that comes with heated sidewalks, entire walls of windows, and its own Snowcat, the price is about what you might expect: $3,900,000.
