There's no question winter vacation will look a little different this year. While travelers will still be looking to hit the slopes, health and safety will be a top priority. Well, there's one new vacation rental that makes the ski vacation of your dreams possible. Vrbo's "Book the Mountain" listing features a stay in a modern, sleek ski-in and ski-out cabin that comes with a totally private ski mountain in Utah.

The snow-filled solitude will be made available to one lucky family this season from February 15, 2021, through February 18, 2021. Beginning October 30 at 1 p.m. ET, you have a chance to book the home and mountain for just $100 a night. As soon as the dates are filled and confirmed, the opening is over. So, it's about getting there first.

“Vrbo created a one of a kind socially-distanced vacation rental that combines a brand new mountain house with a whole ski resort that we’re throwing in for free one time only,” Vrbo Travel Expert, Melanie Fish, told Departures. “We put it all together for just $100 per night to get people excited, not just about this idyllic Utah destination, but all the Vrbo mountain getaways that are especially popular this year and booking up before the first snow even falls.”

If you do snag the spot, you get access to a 2,900-square-foot chalet with five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The home is outfitted with chic furnishings, soaking tubs, a game room, a ski closet, and plenty of oversized windows to take in the stunning mountain views. But, of course, the highlight is having access to the entire ski mountain in Eagle Point Resort in Beaver, Utah, with no one else in sight.

"Skiing at Eagle Point is always a memory-making adventure filled with stunning pine trees, plenty of Utah's 'greatest snow on Earth,' and all surrounded by 12,000-foot peaks. We love to share that experience with guests, which is why we happily partnered with Vrbo to offer one lucky family the mountain all to themselves," Shane Gadbaw, owner and CEO of Eagle Point Resort, told us in a statement. "Our resort is considered a perfect getaway from the crowded slopes, and now we are offering this unique experience consisting of some next-level social distancing. We never have lift lines and certainly won't this day."

Available for just one three-night stay, Vrbo's "Book the Mountain" listing also comes with private ski instruction and ski rentals. And if you don't happen to snag the special reservation, you can book the chalet for an average of $800 a night and it doesn’t come with private mountain access.
