Last weekend at the Lodge for the 2009-2010 ski season

It's hard to believe the ski season is winding down this weekend at Alta Lodge. We've had over 90 inches of snow this month and Alta has a base depth of 137 inches! The ski area will close at the end of the day on Sunday and then re-open for the final weekend on Friday, April 23 and close for the season at the end of the day on Sunday, April 25. Lift tickets will be $49 the final three days at Alta.

Date to remember: Alta Lodge starts Sunday Brunch on June 6...hope to see you this summer!
