Hellgate Condominiums
Reviewed 7 March 2009

We have been traveling to Snowbird & Alta for over 20 years and usually stay at the Lodge at Snowbird as we like the convenience of a kitchen in room and the ability to walk to the lifts. Through craigs list, we were able to book unit F at Hellgate which is a 2bdrm+2bd loft unit for 1/2 the price of what the lodge charges. Alta is about 1 minute away and Hellgate has complimentary shuttle service to both resorts. 1/2 of the properties at Hellgate are New the result of rebuilding after a fire and the balance are in the original section which is where we stayed. Every unit is individually owned and furnished so I can only speak to the condition of unit "F" and the common areas. Our unit was very clean and comfortable. The carpet, couches, chairs, appliances and bathrooms were all recently updated and the unit appeared to have a relatively fresh coat of paint. The layout was a bit quirky and tables, dressers, kitchen cabinets and general decor were straight out of the 70's think vintage. It was fine for 4 guys looking to ski hard all day, come back to a comfortable place to relax and prepare a meal before turning in early. But perhaps this unit isn't ideal for the wives. Prior to booking, the staff was more than happy to answer our questions and emailed us images of our unit which I suggest you do. The hot tub was great and never crowded , laundry on site and great internet service. We certainly will return and considered our stay an exceptional value. I would not hesitate in recommending Hellgate, next time we intend on booking a more fully updated unit with a better layout..









The staff was great and I highly recommend having groceries delivered prior to your arrival.

Hellgate is the perfect choice for someone who enjoys privacy, and wants to be close to the ski resorts. After skiing all day, I came back to my condo, enjoyed myself in the hottub, and cooked a gourmet meal right in my own room. The staff were great, the views are great, it was qiuet and peaceful, and I will be back!

Hellgate Condominiums is the best kept secret in Little Cottonwood Canyon, if you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful location, with awesome mountain views and very comfortable, clean furnishings at a reasonable price. My wife and I spent 8 nights there – 4 nights longer than we originally planned. We were so impressed with the condo that we cancelled our reservations for the rest of our vacation and continued to stay at the Hellgate. We had a huge 2 bedroom, 3 full bath condo for 8 nights for a total cost of only $705, including tax. This was the summer rate and condo management did not charge us for the second bedroom because we only used one.
The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen we’ve ever seen in a rental unit in our 20 years of traveling to ski area condos. Everything we needed was in the kitchen. Every unit has a fireplace with wood supplied.
There are no elevators, so anyone with physical disabilities that can’t climb several flights of stairs should not stay here. There is a long open-grate metal staircase leading from the parking lot into the main building, through which you must carry your luggage. Once in the building, there are more stairs to the units. However, if you’re staying here you’re probably hiking or skiing, so the constant stair climbing is a good warm up. During our stay we learned that all rental units vary in their layout, décor, and mountain views, so ask about your unit before confirming reservations. Some units have old, “tasteless” décor, but remodeling is currently underway. We loved our unit, even though it has yet to be remodeled.
We had a “million dollar view” of the canyon from the large floor-to-ceiling windows, even watching mule deer and mountain goats from our bedroom balcony.
If you need a restaurant or shopping village within a short walking distance you will be disappointed. However, restaurants are available less than 1 mile in either direction as Hellgate is located between the Alta and Snowbird resorts. Not having an attached restaurant is actually a positive feature because the lack of hustle and bustle allows the tranquility of the mountains to pervade.
The summer hiking outside the door of Hellgate is absolutely spectacular. The views from the hiking trails here rival anything we’ve seen in Glacier National Park, but the trails here were almost deserted.
Hellgate is a fantastic place, but we don’t think it should be listed in the “luxury, top-of-the-line” category rating. We will definitely go back!
