We hope that the joy of skiing at Alta has given you reason to smile. Thank you for joining Alta for our 83rd winter. We can't wait to do it again next winter.

Weekend & Holiday Parking Reservations

Mainly unchanged for 83 winters, skiing at Alta still delivers deep snowfall, sweeping mountain views and a laid-back vibe that generations of skiers fondly recall. What has changed is the weekend and holiday skiing experience at Alta. And while we can't go back in time, we are making changes to manage skier demand to preserve the Alta skiing experience going forward. Implementing a paid parking reservation system on weekends & holidays is a step in that direction.

Turning away cars on busy weekends and holidays should no longer be part of a day of skiing. Our goal is to help guarantee that skiers with a paid parking reservation will have a place to park. This should ease early morning traffic congestion resulting from limited parking available on a first-come, first-serve basis and allow us to better manage the amount of skiers on the mountain during peak periods. 

Alta has a no refund policy, however, we understand that life can present unexpected challenges that warrant consideration of a refund or credit. On a case-by-case basis, Alta reviews all refund request forms. To request a form please email info@alta.com
