Come close. I’m here to let you in on a little secret. Ski season is not over and the spring skiing at Alta is the best in the Wasatch. Obviously, there’s the phenomenal snow. But the festivities and energy around Alta in April are the perfect way to spend your spring weekends.
Get Down on Demo Day
It’s the largest demo day in the Wasatch on Saturday, April 7. Take advantage of the chance to try next year’s skis from a ton of different manufactures. And guess what? It’s completely free. All you need are your boots, a couple of signatures and a credit card . Registration starts at 8:30am and demos will run until 2:30pm.
In case a Demo Day isn’t enough, there will also be live music on the Goldminer’s Daughter patio from 11:30am – 5:30 p.m. After you’ve found your dream pair of skis for next season, celebrate on the deck with a pitcher and listen to some tunes from this amazing line up:
- 11:30 – 12:30: Night Marcher/The Weekenders
- 12:50 – 2:00: Nathan Bishop Real Sly
- 2:20 – 3:20: Tim Jindra Mountain Soul
- 3:40 – 5:30: Miachel SG
What’s a better way to celebrate spring skiing at Alta than with live music and free demos?
Alta Earth Day
On Saturday, April 14, Alta will celebrate its 9th annual community Earth Day. You can be part of a collaborative effort to encourage environmental stewardship and responsible recreation and to help spread awareness of the relationship between climate change and the future of the ski industry in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
So what does Alta Earth Day entail?
For starters there’s an opportunity to spring clean your house. You can recycle old gear, like skis and snowboards and even your Patagonia clothing with Mini-Charm. Bring up your old gear and help recycle! And give yourself a good reason to get some new gear.
For you bird nerds out there, join Tracy Aviary experts for a tour and introduction to the birds at Alta. The tours start at 9:00am at the bottom of Collins lift.
If you’re interests lay more toward the naturalist side, join the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation at Albion Grill. Be there at 10:00am to explore the Wasatch with an expert. Complimentary snowshoe rentals are available.
