working together, towards another successful season.

Alta's winter operations will follow the latest COVID-19 guidelines specified by the State of Utah. Stay tuned for further updates this fall and winter.

What Can you do to help?

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Be patient. Be courteous.

What are we doing?

  • Return to full capacity. In an effort to keep Alta skiers skiing, rather than waiting in lift lines, we will be loading our lifts at full capacity for the second consecutive winter.
  • Singles lines have returned, with the intent that singles join other riders rather than riding solo on the chair.
  • Cleaning and Sanitization. Cleaning and sanitization strategies will be enhanced in cooperation with CDC, State of Utah and SLCHD guidelines. Hand sanitizer will be readily available for skiers and employees in designated areas.

Food & Drink

Restaurant offerings and level of service may be impacted by staffing levels. Our base area and on-mountain facilities will return to full occupancy for the second consecutive winter.

Menus have been simplified and food will be prepared in advance where possible. Alta has expanded grab-and-go food and beverage options at multiple locations. Baldy Brews and Cecret Coffee will be open for take-out and grab-and-go only. Slopeside Joe's at the Goldminer's Daughter Lodge and Alta Java will also offer grab-and-go options with outdoor seating.
