Big Storm Opens Alta's Ski Season

Wednesday afternoon at 2 pm
Alta opened for the season last Friday and a storm moved into the area on Saturday, depositing so
much snow that Alta did not open on Sunday! There is a 40-inch base now and the Thanksgiving weekend is off to a great start with beautiful sunny days in the forecast for Thursday and Friday. All reports from skiers say the conditions are great and the new Corkscrew run is a nice improvement. After the holiday weekend the weather will change (of course!) and we'll be looking at cooler temperatures with more snow moving into the area.  If you can plan a last minute escape to ski, follow the weather on a web site a lot of locals use and plan your powder trip before the next holiday when it is quiet and there's a good chance to get some faceshots!

Alta Opens on Friday!

We're looking forward to Alta's opening day this Friday, November 21.  A storm over the weekend brought in fresh snow and colder temperatures which is a sure sign of winter.  At the moment, more snow is in the forecast for the weekend.  As we get closer to opening day, look for Twitter and Facebook postings for the latest info on lifts and runs that will be open on Friday.

Alta Lodge also opens this weekend for the winter season. Our dining room will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner to the public. Breakfast and dinner are included for overnight lodging guests and we welcome outside guests to dine with us.

If you are at Alta on Friday, we hope to see you on the slopes or for lunch for or apres ski at the end of the day.

Happy Winter!
