75 years..really? Yes! Alta Lodge first opened the doors to skiers in 1940, two years after Alta Ski Area opened. According to Alta Historical Society President David Davenport, “When it [Alta Lodge] opened, it was the epicenter of the social culture at Alta. The love of skiing, powder and après ski were all aspects of a tradition where the focus was skiing. The Levitt family, who own and operate the Lodge, are dedicated to the traditional lodge style, which exemplifies an approach to skiing that gained its roots in Europe and New England—breakfast and dinner included with stay, no televisions, a common dining area and an opportunity for communal social engagement between guests."
