It's Green and Hiking Time is Here!

Mt. Superior
It's been super warm in Salt Lake City and the snow is melting FAST at Alta. We're excited about that as it opens up more trails for hiking and makes getting into the mountains more pleasurable. The best hiking at the moment is down canyon, about two miles, from the White Pine trail head.  The high alpine lakes accessed from the trail head still have snow but the majority of the trails are okay to hike. We have information on getting to the trails on our hiking web page.

Sunday Brunch is happening and we served the first Saturday Lunch of the season last weekend. We encourage and welcome hikers to join us before after their hikes.

It's Going to be Green Soon

It will be green around Alta Lodge before too long.
It's been warm this week at Alta and Little Cottonwood Creek is high and running fast. With temperatures in Salt Lake City hitting the upper 90s, the snow is melting very quickly now.

Earlier this week we hosted a retreat for Waterford School.        The 33rd Annual Writers@Work Conference is going on now and commences on Sunday. Both of these were exclusive events, that is, there are no other events occurring at the same time which meeting and retreat participants really appreciate.

Weddings start soon and this summer will be a busy wedding season! Wedding couples enjoy the option the have an exclusive event at the Lodge. We make it easy with the wedding, reception, dancing and overnight accommodations all at the Lodge.  Wedding guests frequently make a weekend stay and enjoy the surrounding mountains and what they have to offer. Walking, hiking and mountain biking are all options at Alta.
