Summer in Alta

We love sharing summer in Alta with our guests. It’s the perfect place to escape the summertime heat and enjoy the magic of the mountains and the pristine beauty of Little Cottonwood Canyon.


Hiking in Alta should be on everyone’s summer and fall to-do lists. Miles of varying terrain and extraordinary trails are located just out our door, with hikes for every ability.   

Hiking in Alta Summer Trail Map


As snow melts and summer takes hold, an unforgettable display of wildflowers spreads across Alta’s slopes. The glacier-carved Albion Basin offers some of the best family-friendly wildflower hiking in the Wasatch Range. You can discover over 300 species of wildflowers – including fields of lupine, Indian paintbrush, bluebell, elephant flower, geranium, columbine, and many more.  

Wildflowers begin to bloom as early as June, peaking in mid-July through mid-August. Golden aspens offer fall colors from the end of September through mid-October.

Summer Dining

Outside of pre-arranged group dining for Lodge events and Sunday brunch, there are limited dining options in Alta.
Lodge guests can order a “to-go” lunch and snacks.

Within a short walk of the Lodge, the Snowpine Lodge’s Gulch Pub offers lunch and dinner. An array of dining options is also available at neighboring Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort.
