Saturday 4/1, the Alta Post Office will be open till 4pm – This is no joke!

We plan to resume post office operations on Saturday once interlodge lifts.  To help us get through the backlog of mail and help everyone get their packages we are offering extended hours. We appreciate your understanding regarding the power outage and interlodge and are working to recover from these events.

As long as the weather allows, the Alta Post Office is scheduled to be open on Friday, March 31.  We lost power to building on March 29 due to a downed Rocky Mountain Power line.  A temporary solution is in place allowing us to resume use of the space.
