Alta Terrain

Alta continues its relationship with Clif Bar and the SkiGreen™ program from the Bonneville Environmental Foundation to make Sugarloaf lift a ‘Green Lift.” Clif Bar, a company dedicated to restoring and sustaining our environment, and one who supports others who do so, works with Alta in purchasing renewable energy certificates through SkiGreen. Offsetting the energy used to run this lift translates to another 11% of Alta’s energy consumption covered by renewable energy, bringing the total to 34%. Alta skiers will also have the opportunity to support renewable energy. Through SkiGreen, skiers can purchase a $2.00 SkiGreen Tag on alta.com and at our ticket offices. These dollars purchase clean wind energy on their behalf.

What's New This Season at Alta

Alta Ski Area celebrates 70 years of skiing this winter. The Forest Service issued the initial permit to construct a lift at Alta to the Salt Lake Winter Sports Association. Alta officially opened as a ski area January 15, 1939, with the first chairlift in Utah.

Coming off a 702 inch total snowfall last season, hopes are this is the best season ever! No major events are planned, with the hopes that all who ski Alta this season will enjoy the feeling of celebration.
