Project Based Internships

Skiing toward a degree
Alta Ski Area does not offer a typical internship for students and universities.  We believe in helping prepare students for their future careers by building valuable skill sets through on-the-job training with viable studies for both the student and ski industry. To allow this type of learning experience,  we work with students to design a project-based internship that reflects their chosen major and compliments Alta's sustainability focused areas.

Academically inclined
Though not an internship, Alta Ski Area is pleased to have ties with the University of Utah's Environmental & Sustainability Studies Program and the Global Change & Sustainability Center.  In hosting these program's annual orientations, together we learn and work side-by-side as stewards. As our relationship grew Alta wanted to offer more opportunities to the hard-working and sometimes less-advantaged students pursing higher education.  In 2013 we offered a one-year full-tuition sustainability scholarship for two years to two very impressive students.  As our goals have unfolded, together we now offer the Alta Sustainability Leadership Awards. The inaugural recipients were awarded in the spring of 2015.
