Celebrity Ski House

The Ski House of the Day is Tony Danza's Utah ski chalet.  Actor Tony Danza is best known for his starring roles in the TV shows Taxi, and Who's the Boss, but is also active in charity work for cancer research, education and other worthy causes.  According to, his chalet was listed for sale for $2.7 million last year, and last month the listing was removed;  so this chalet may now have a new "boss".  Whomever the owner (celebrity or not)  it's a nice place.  The ski house is a classic stone and cedar, ski-in/ski-out chalet in Park City.

The first thing you'd see as you pull into the heated driveway of this house is the large garage which the house towers above.  I also notice that the house seems to follow the steep slope of the ski hill... and so it consists of a full four stories... 

...but upstairs you can walk out back to access the snow (as well as an in-ground hot-tub).
Fortunately, there's an elevator to help get all your gear from the lower levels upstairs:

...and surely that elevator was a welcome feature for Tony Danza while he was recovering from his serious skiing accident in 1993.  According to Danza has a reputation for skiing hard;  and he hit a tree on a December day when the trails were unusually icy here.

The house has a nice large great room with a cathedral ceiling, very tall stone fireplace, windows all around, and ski artwork above the mantle:

...and something about that toboggan in the corner of great room looks pleasantly familiar to me.

Within view of the great room and fireplace is the kitchen:

The ski house has four bedrooms, and here's one of its four bathrooms:

To top it all off, the view from this ski house is wonderful from any of its four floors.
