Here at Alta we decided to break down each one of our season pass options to help you decide which one is a good fit. From the Family Season Pass Package to the AltaSnowbird Pass, we’re laying out all of the information for you so that your decision is simple.

Before we get started, here are three things to consider:

  1. Tradition: Alta has been offering skiers the best skiing since 1938. That’s over 75 years. We must be doing something right, right?
  2. Snow: You gotta have it to ski. And while you’re at it, you might as well enjoy the 560″ of seasonal snowfall that we get at Alta. That’s a lot of snow, right?!
  3. Terrain: Alta’s slopes are not just for the expert skier. Nor are they packed with green runs. From beginner slopes off of the Cecret Lift to some of the most coveted alpine terrain in North America, Alta offers terrain to match your ability.
