What’s more, special off-season lodging rates make summer an ideal time to experience Alta and Snowbird. For friends, family and romance, allow Alta Chalets to plan your memorable summer getaway.

Alta and Snowbird, situated in Little Cottonwood Canyon, offer a wide range of spectacular options, from leisurely strolls to steep mountain terrain. Hike to pristine alpine lakes, surround yourself in breathtaking wildflowers, and walk across open mountain fields. You could do a different hike every day while awakening in the comforts of Alta Chalets lodgings.
