Alta Lodge is a great launch pad for backcountry skiing and snowboarding. Unfamiliar with the Wasatch Mountains backcountry? Relax. We make it easy for newcomers to the sport. If you enjoy hiking and can ski or snowboard off the groomed slopes, you’re set to try the backcountry with a three-day guided clinic with Utah Mountain Adventures. Guide Winslow Passey has a great description and video on her blog. No equipment? No problem. Rental equipment is available for participants. More information and details are on our web site.
