Welcome to Alta Lodge.
Alta Lodge offers ski lodging at the base of Alta Ski Area in Alta, Utah. Alta Lodge is Alta’s first ski lodge, hosting skiers at Alta since 1940. We are a traditional, historic ski hotel with ski-in, ski-out access to the most renowned of Utah ski resorts, Alta Ski Area, and only a mile away from Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort.
Skiing at Alta ranges from Alta’s famous steep and deep powder and off-trail runs, to groomed intermediate runs, to ideal beginner slopes for learning to ski – all of it covered with an average annual snowfall of 545 inches a year of light, dry Utah powder snow. With the Alta-Snowbird “Alta-Bird” ski pass, guests ski the best of Little Cottonwood Canyon’s powder right out our door. Snowcat skiing is offered by Alta Ski Area, and Wasatch Powderbird Guides offers helicopter skiing, for the ultimate in untracked powder skiing. Skiers can experience some of the best backcountry skiing and ski touring in the world, both powder and spring corn snow, right out our door.
The Alta Lodge Lodging-Dining Package offers fine dining and a classic on-mountain lodging experience. Our guest rooms range from romantic corner rooms with fireplace and balcony, to large rooms for the whole family, to dorm rooms for a ski trip with friends. Most rooms have spectacular Alta slopeside or mountain views. A full American skier’s breakfast and a complete four-course dinner are included in our room rates. Fine dining is a highlight of Alta Lodge. Full wine and beverage service is offered with dinner. We also serve lunch in our dining room – it’s a gracious and relaxing alternative to the usual on-mountain lunch fare. Our classic ski bar, the Sitzmark Club, is a warm spot to meet friends for a beer or a cocktail après-ski.
Alta Lodge is the perfect destination for a family ski vacation. Our Kids’ Club includes after-skiing kids’ activities, crafts and games, a special kids’ dinner, children’s activities after dinner, and a free shuttle to Alta Children’s Ski School each morning and afternoon. During early season and spring season, kids stay free in their parents’ room.
Our ski adventures, camps and clinics are more popular every year. Our original Powder Tracks ski week is the best way to learn to ski powder in Alta’s steep and deep snow, with the latest fat and rockered powder skis and ski instruction from Alta Ski Area’s Alf Engen Ski School. Our Women’s Ski Camps combine the camaraderie and fun of a women’s-only ski group with ski instruction especially for women. Other ski programs offer backcountry ski touring and coaching for expert and steep skiing.
The Deep Powder House ski shop, just a few steps from our door, is one of several nearby ski shops offering the latest powder skis, fat skis, shaped skis and all-mountain skis, as well as ski boots, clothing and other ski gear.
In the summer, when the Wasatch Mountains bloom with wildflowers, we offer a traditional mountain lodge experience. We host romantic outdoor mountain weddings, with full dining and beverage service, as well as lodging on site in Alta. Alta Lodge is the perfect summer location for a business meeting, retreat or conference, in the cool mountain air of Little Cottonwood Canyon, but less than an hour from Salt Lake City International Airport. And our Sunday Brunch is a favorite with Salt Lake locals and visitors alike, with outdoor dining, live acoustic jazz, and a selection of house-made pastries, breakfast dishes to order, and lunch cuisine.
