Alta Ski Area Highlights

April 2, 2017

Skiing has been great. Hope all of you have had the opportunity to get out! It's time to get those days in before we close for the season on April 16. We will be open with all lifts through that day- the 16th.

Our crews are proceeding with the prep work for the removal of Cecret and Supreme lifts. We will replace the two lifts with a detachable quad that will have its base terminal near Alf's Restaurant. The top of the lift will be in the same location as Supreme is now.

The detachable technology gives us greater control over skiers delivered per hour, while at the same time giving our skiers a shorter ride time.  The detachable lift technology does not necessarily mean that we will be transporting more skiers up the mountain. Our operational teams determine "people per hour" depending on conditions.

See you on the mountain,
