Spring time at Alta and Snowbird is awesome! We just enjoyed a number of bluebird days soaking up the sunshine and now the snow is falling. My fireplace is glowing and I’m so excited to be enjoying another winter day and the forecast is calling for snow over the next five days.

Demo Day tents and guests.

This weather reminds me that skiing is not over, there are still turns to make and sunshine to enjoy (once the snow stops). Little Cottonwood Canyon has gotten over 400″ of snow this year and Alta and Snowbird both have about 120″ base. If you’ve visited this season you know its been awesome, you know we’ve seen our share of powder days and sunshine – if you haven’t visited yet, there’s still plenty of time!

For a number of years now, our Alta community has come together to bring guests “Alta in April”. This year we’re celebrating April 7 to 16! Presented by the Alta Chamber & Visitors Bureau and the Alta, Utah community Alta in April, non-stop fun and a great reason to visit Alta! Check out parties, lodging deals, discounts and special events across the mountain!
