NYE Torchlight Parade and Fireworks

New Year's Eve torchlight parade and fireworks.

Please join us for our annual New Year's Eve Torchlight Parade and fireworks show. Enjoy an outdoor bonfire and watch the fireworks show from the Town of Alta and Alta Ski Area.

Wildcat and Collins will start loading at 5:15pm. Skiers with a torchlight lift ticket will ride the chair one time and stage at the Collins angle station while waiting for the parade to begin.

The bonfire will be lit at 5pm. The torchlight parade and fireworks will begin at 6pm.


  • Torchlight lift tickets will be limited to the first 500 skiers.
  • Dress warm, New Year's Eve can be one of the coldest nights of the year.
  • No beginner skiers are allowed as the parade route follows intermediate terrain in low light conditions.
  • Skiers must bring their own flashlights or headlamps for the festive ski down in the dark.
  • Participants will be allowed just one ride up Collins or Wildcat.
  • Children need to be accompanied by an adult.
  • Open containers of any type of beverage are not allowed on the lift.


New this season, the Albion Grill now offers Après-Ski throughout the holidays and Friday–Sunday all winter long. Unwind after a great day of skiing in the Albion Grill or while waiting to see the fireworks light up the night sky.
