We do not allow guests to sleep on floors or sofas. Tenant agrees that the premises shall not be used for any illegal or unlawful purpose. Occupancy and use of the premises in such a fashion that disturbs or offends the neighbors shall be deemed grounds for termination. Quiet hours in all properties are observed from 10PM – 8AM.

Alta Chalet’s staff authorized your rental of this property based on the number of people in your group. All properties strictly enforce the maximum occupancy per unit - exceeding this number is grounds for possible eviction with no refund of monies paid. You are required to contact our office should there be any change in the number of people in your group. The owners and staff of Alta Chalets are delighted to accommodate groups attending summer weddings in the Alta/Snowbird area. However, kindly be advised that all parties or gatherings at the Chalet must be cleared in advance by concierge.

Oversize vehicles, motor homes, oversized vehicles or vehicles with trailers are not permitted at any Alta Chalet property.  Should you rent a vehicle, Four Wheel Drive/All Wheel Drive is Strongly Recommended.  Utah State Law requires that all vehicles accessing Highway 210 (the road that accesses Alta and Snowbird) be equipped with Snow Tires or chains November 1 – May 1. In addition, the highway can also be restricted to 4WD/AWD during and after storms. The following link provides additional information on laws governing this road: https://cottonwoodcanyons.udot.utah.gov/getting-up-the-canyons/

Pets are prohibited in Little Cottonwood Canyon. This law is strictly enforced at all times.  No pets or animals of any kind are permitted in any property unless they are a bona fide service animal that we are required by law to allow. Emotional support animals are not permitted.  You also agree that a prohibition on animals is not a guarantee than an animal has not been inside the rental unit or building or that the rental unit is free of animal or pet allergens.  Violation of the No Pet-policy will result in a $1500.00 fine plus any damages.

Fireplaces are meant for aesthetic purposes only - they are not meant to provide heat.  We ask that you have SMALL FIRES only with a maximum of three logs at one time.  Your allotment of firewood that we will provide for you is three logs per day and we will restock during your stay during daytime hours only.  
Larger fires are not permitted as they can:

  • Smoke out upper units
  • Overheat the firebox - possibly causing a structure fire.  
  • Damage carpeting and furnishings due to sparks.  

You will be responsible for any damage caused by a large fire.  
Per The View HOA: fires are only permitted after 4PM and prior to midnight.  
Per Salt Lake County:  fires are not permitted on "non-burn" days.  We will post a sign in the tower entry when this is in effect.  Please note that there is a very large fine for having fires on non-burn days.  

No smoking is allowed in or around (including porches, decks, or outdoor areas) the premises at any time. Should it be discovered that this policy was violated all smoke remediation and cleaning charges associated with removing odors from furniture and unit will be charged to the credit card on file. This is not covered by the Vacation Rental Damage Waiver.  Violation of the No Smoking policy will result in a $1500.00 fine plus any damages. 

Tenant acknowledges that unless Alta Chalets is notified on day of check-in of any damage or cleaning concerns, then thereafter, any damages to the property or concerns during the occupancy will be the Tenant responsibility and must be reported to Alta Chalets and paid for prior to departure.


FOR ALL PROPERTIES EXCEPT THE VIEW CONDOMINIUMS, AND THE MANLEY:  All hot tubs are cleaned prior to guest arrival and are maintained on a daily basis. Alta Chalet’s staff will enter property daily to check the hot tub. Hot tub use is at your own risk. Guests are responsible for any damage to hot tub or hot tub cover. Alta Chalets is not liable for any damage or injury as a result of misuse of the hot tub. Alta Chalets charges for any draining and refilling of tub during a stay.   Hot Tubs may be available during the summer months on a request basis for a small fee.  In the event the hot tub at the rental property experiences mechanical issues, guests will be refunded $25 for a common area hot tub or $50 for a private hot tub, for each day it is not available for use. This refund does not apply to pool or hot tub closures due to COVID-19 or seasonality of hot tubs.

Due to fire risk, only Artificial Christmas Trees are allowed on premise.  If you intend to purchase a tree, please contact our office to ensure that it will fit in the unit.  In addition, as the holidays are our busiest time of year, set up/ take down/ removal of tree must be performed by the guest. 

FOR THE BLACK BEAR, THE MANLEY and NICHOLSON CHALET:  These homes have a caretakers/managers apartment on the lower level of the house. Alta receives over 500 inches of snow per year, and due to this unique environment, caretakers are an integral part of the town of Alta. The jobs of the caretakers are as follows: Shovel snow to allow for access in and out of the house; home maintenance, work with snow removal to insure that driveways are plowed; act as a liaison with Town of Alta when there are road restrictions. In addition, our caretakers have a number of other responsibilities including guest check in and out, home orientation including how to use hot tubs, WIFI, satellite TV etc.  They are also available if you have any local area questions.  

All properties are cleaned in preparation for your arrival. Alta Chalets provides all bed and bath linens. In addition, we supply a starter supply of tissues, toilet paper, paper towels, bath soap, laundry soap, dishwasher detergent, washing machine detergent and garbage bags. We do not replenish these supplies during your stay.  The property must be left in the same general condition as when you arrived. The refrigerator and freezer must be emptied of all food and free of food spills. All clean dishes should be put away and dirty dishes rinsed and placed in dishwasher. Garbage is to be removed to outside dumpster or garbage bin.  Please leave all linen on beds and put dirty towels in the bathtub or shower.  Alta Chalet’s staff inspects and cleans the property shortly after your departure. Charges for any excessive cleaning or damage will be charged to the credit card on file.

Service requests for the heater, televisions, appliances, hot tubs etc. will be responded to as quickly as possible. There are no rebates or refunds issued to Tenants for any reason as every good faith effort is made to insure the property is maintained to the highest standards.

Certain areas within property may be locked such as owner’s personal storage areas and are exempt from this lease agreement and are off limits to the Tenant. Forced entry into these areas is cause for immediate termination and Tenant will be charged for damage and/or missing items.

In the event that Alta Chalets is unable to deliver said property to Tenant under this lease agreement prior to occupancy because of fire, eminent domain or act of nature, or situations beyond our control, Tenant hereby agrees that Alta Chalets sole liability as a result of these conditions is a full refund of all consideration previously tendered by Tenant.  Pursuant to the terms of this agreement, Tenant expressly acknowledges that in no event shall Alta Chalets be held liable for any consequential or secondary damages, including but not limited to any expenses incurred as a result of said un-deliverability.

All rental units are privately owned and are managed by Alta Chalets at contracted rental rates. Guests agree to hold Alta Chalets and individual owners free and clear of any damage or injury to self or property resulting from accident, injury, or loss due to rain, snow, flood, negligence, fire, theft or other reason.   This property is located in a mountain environment. Snow and icy conditions can pose a risk around the property including areas underneath roofs. Every effort is made to remove snow and ice and make the area around the property safe. Please always wear appropriate footwear. Do not allow anyone to play under the eaves of any structure or on or around snowbanks. Playing anywhere around the property is done at the sole risk and responsibility of renter or guests of the renter.
