spring skiers at Alta Ski Area

Closing Day

the grand season finale is here.

It's been a wild ride to this point and we are excited to send the season out in style.

  • Parking reservations are required 8am–4:30pm on Closing Day
  • Wasatch Benefit days are not valid on Closing Weekend
  • The UTA Ski Bus is now done for the season and will not run on Sunday, April 23rd—please plan accordingly
  • No parking in Alta lots before 8am, even on Closing Day

You may wonder with all this snow, why don’t we extend our season? Most of our employees are seasonal employees and we need to honor our commitment to them so they can leave for their summer employment. And as the temps rise in the valley, many skiers embrace other sports such as mountain biking, hiking and golf. Backcountry skiers will have the opportunity to keep skiing at Alta after our crews have cleared the mountain of ropelines, bamboo and all other operational materials. We will still offer skiing, but our lifts will go on summer vacation with the rest of you.
