Unlike many ski “resorts”, Alta Ski Area is only a 45-minute drive from Salt Lake International Airport. With numerous direct flights from major airports like New York, Boston, California, and Chicago, traveling up to Alta is seamless for any family. Even better, you don’t have to bother with the hassles of renting a car. We recommend you skip the rental and book a ride with Alta Shuttle, Canyon Transportation or Alpine Transportation and all you have to worry about is getting all the family bags and gear from the baggage claim to the shuttle. And after a short scenic drive, you and the family will arrive at the front steps of one of the five lodges slope side.


Lodging options in Alta vary from upscale hotels to classic ski lodges to private homes and condominiums. Whether you want family time with no TVs in the hotel rooms or a place for the kids to go hang out at night, there’s a place to stay for any snow-loving family in Alta. All of the lodges have built-in rates that include hearty breakfasts and tasty dinners. See which accommodations are right for your family here
