An Alta employee prepares the ramp for Wildcat lift on a winter day at Alta Ski Area

Opening Day

Our 86th winter starts Saturday, November 25th.

It took a little longer than expected, but Mother Nature delivered another two feet of snow in the past week and our on-mountain crews have been working around the clock to prepare the mountain for skiing. Wildcat and Collins lifts will begin spinning for the 2023–24 season this Saturday, November 25th.

We recommend expert skiers only given the current conditions. Limited groomed terrain will be available with no access to the Albion Basin.

Expected Lifts & Terrain

  • Wildcat and Collins lifts
  • There will be limited groomed terrain available with no access to the Albion Basin
