Oktoberfest

Snowbird's Oktoberfest began in 1973, when two men costumed in leather lederhosen, inspired by the towering mountains that reminded them of their homeland, came to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort to play their accordions and sing in their native German tongue. Now – attracting over 60,000 visitors annually – Oktoberfest has grown to become one of the largest festivals in Utah.

“Alaska Airlines is a fantastic new air travel option for the residents of, and visitors to, Salt Lake City,” said Ralph Becker, Salt Lake City mayor. “As regional outdoor recreation gateways, Salt Lake City and Seattle have much in common and I look forward to utilizing this great new connection with the Pacific Northwest and points beyond.”

“We're delighted to welcome Alaska Airlines,” said Maureen Riley, executive director of the Salt Lake City Department of Airports. “This new service will provide an important link to worldwide access for passengers. They will be the eighth air carrier with scheduled service in Salt Lake City.”

Alaska Airlines' new flights will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft, accommodating 16 passengers in first class and 141 in the main cabin.
