ALTA SKI RESORT
Alta provides a unique setting for unforgettable experiences with family, friends, and the mountain itself. Alta officially opened as a ski area in the winter of 1938-39. Throughout the years, Alta’s philosophy has been to offer a quality skiing experience for a fair price. The focus is on skiing, earning Alta accolades as a “purist’s mountain.” It's one of the three remaining areas in the United States to be a skiers-only mountain. Ski Magazine's Reader Resort Survey ranked Alta #1 for Overall Satisfaction. Alta, along with Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, proudly celebrate 10 years of offering America’s first lift-served interconnect. Come and enjoy the excitement of the AltaSnowbird experience. With the AltaSnowbird “one ticket,” skiers have access to 4,700 acres. AltaSnowbird was voted the #1 resort in the U.S. by Skiing Magazine for five years running.

Plan a winter getaway by staying at one of Alta's ski-in/ski-out lodges. Lodging packages include breakfast and dinner. Some guests insist on returning year after year just for the dining experience. Each lodge has fireplaces, ample gathering spaces, and friendly staff. If you're looking for a private home or condo, you can expect luxury properties with fully equipped kitchens, mountain views, and free shuttle service to the lifts. Chef service and food stocking options are also available.
Alta's mountain dining options range from a white tablecloth dining experience with cuisine featuring organic lamb, duck, rabbit, seafood, hearty soups, salads, creme brulee, and truffle-filled chocolate cupcakes to outdoor deck dining offering hamburgers, delicious deli sandwiches and salads, pizzas, soups, cookies, brownies, and fresh fruit. Guests may choose from three restaurants at mid-mountain and several base area cafeterias. Four of the lodges also offer lunch for non-lodging guests.
