Every day is Earth Day at Alta Ski Area

Alta Earth Day 2021

Alta Earth Day 2021

Join Alta for its 12th annual community Alta Earth Day on Saturday, April 17th, 2021. This event encourages environmental stewardship, responsible recreation and awareness of the relationship between climate change and the future of the ski industry in Little Cottonwood Canyon and beyond. The day’s celebrations will feature events with our non-profit partners to get out into our beautiful mountain environment and gain some knowledge. Although this year's event will differ from years past without on-snow vendors, we still aim to connect our community with our environment.
