ALTA, Utah – November 2018 – The long-awaited opening of Snowpine Lodge at Alta is slated for January 16, 2019. The new resort, timed with the opening of the adjacent Snowpine ski lift, will up the ante as the first ski-in/ski-out luxury resort in the historic town known for its laid-back style, rugged terrain and abundant supply of annual powder snow. 

Snowpine Lodge will be resurrected at the site of the original 1941 Snowpine Lodge and the site of the oldest building in Little Cottonwood Canyon, dating back to the silver rush of the 1800’s. Completely restored from the ground up, the new resort will boast 77 total accommodations including 58 rooms and suites and 19 traditional dorm-style bunk rooms. Guest amenities will include two restaurants and a lively bar, a scenic slope-side heated pool, hot tubs, spa facility, fitness center, Alta’s first fully-stocked game room, a movie room, fire pits, ski lockers, event spaces and more.

The Stillwell Spa will be at the heart of the resort’s après ski offerings as the only full-service spa facility in the area with six different treatment rooms, an indoor grotto, stream room, sauna, oxygen bar and relaxation area. Using luxurious Elemis products, treatments will range from soothing massages and wraps to renewing facials and beauty services. 

Two convenient dining options will offer guests a choice between sophisticated and casual. Swen’s Restaurant will feature an open-kitchen display with floor-to-ceiling windows serving globally-inspired, regionally-sourced American cuisine paired with a curated selection of wines and beers, while The Gulch Pub is a more casual eatery with a full-service bar offering comfort foods and craft cocktails. 

Located just 34 miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport, Snowpine Lodge will appeal to families, groups, couples and solo travelers seeking a pristine alpine escape. The year-round destination offers hiking, mountain biking, fishing and more in the summer months, while the winter season brings a bounty of snowfall perfect for skiing mountainside, cross-country or heli-skiing and snowshoeing. 

Rates are based on double occupancy and begin at $329 during the winter season and $149 during the summer months.
