Seasons Changing: Winter to Spring and Summer

Alta Ski Area’s last day of ski season operations is rapidly approaching on April 16th. While “re-opening” for a couple three-day weekends has become common over the past several years, this season will not feature any additional weekends. With the season coming more firmly to a close this Sunday, here are a few things to keep in mind as Alta enters the transition period between winter and summer:

–Winter season overnight parking regulations are in force until Monday morning, April 17th. Click here for a map depicting overnight parking areas along SR 210 in the Town of Alta.

–As of mid-April, the Alta snowpack is deeper than it has been in recent seasons. Alta residents and property owners should be mindful of spring runoff and the potential for flooding. Also, please check all external gas lines and meters, as the creeping snowpack can damage these features and cause gas leaks. Also, now is a good time to make sure smoke detectors and alarm systems are functioning properly. 

–Utah Transit Authority Ski Bus service ended on April 9th. UTA will operate Route 953 seven days a week through the summer season, with one trip up-canyon in the morning and one trip down in the evening.

-Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort plans to offer skiing until Memorial Day, May 29th, with operations dependent upon conditions.

–The Town of Alta tentatively plans to operate its summer booth and Albion Basin shuttle service beginning on July 1st.
