Alta is keeping you safe by socially distancing skiers in lines, parking, restaurants and common areas. We are also encouraging people to avoid carpooling with skiers outside of your household and to take advantage of the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) Ski Bus. Skiers with qualifying Alta season passes, Ikon Passes or an Ikon Base Pass can ride the UTA Ski Bus for free!.

UTA’s top priority is the safety of skiers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

UTA is ensuring your safety on the Ski Bus through the following efforts

  • Limiting passenger loads on buses (watch for bus is full signs)
  • Driver barriers

  • Hand sanitizer dispensers

UTA can’t do this alone, so please follow these simple safety guidelines
