    So it's a local Yellowstone Club then:
    Access to the mountain will be restricted to investors and homeowners, who are expected to be among the "one percent of the richest one percent."

    Apparently Alta will not be including a UTA bus pass as a season pass benefit this year! This has been a long-time season pass benefit at Alta. This action by Alta will make the parking situation there worse and Alta's claims to be an environmentally responsible user of Little Cottonwood Canyon should be evaluated in light of this action. Snowbird is still including the UTA pass with their season passes--this could be a consideration in where you decide to ski this winter.

    Do you think a person could play the Im thinking of investing but need to know the skiing is worth it card?

    certainly. just need a $5k non-refundable deposit. i mean, that's pocket change for your average possible investor right?

    Alta's eco-friendly branding is a complete joke. Shame on them.

    Mind = blown

    Appears to be real, nothing about bus access on the season pass benefit page: https://www.alta.com/tickets-and-passes/benefits

    Make all the passholders use the parking res system and drive + make the non passholders drive and pay = more money off parking for mike maughn if less passholders use the bus.

    What are the Reno odds for the headline "Alta sells to Alterra" in the next 2 years?

    Despite LCC already being loved to death that would really suck. However, I'm not sure how it would fit Alterra's business model since Alta Ski Lift Company owns and operates the ski area but none of the hotels or lodging -- plus Ikon is already accepted at Alta, so what's the incentive?

    WASATCH STOKE, CONDITIONS, OBSERVATIONS and ASSORTED DRIVAL 20-21

    Hope you're healing up well D-roc!

    I managed to squeeze in a couple Alta laps and a Bird day when I was in town the last few days. Thanks again for the hook up beaterdit! Lucked out with the weather Sunday, much more sun and slush than the forecast had me prepared for.

    Um, to own one of the most iconic ski resorts in the world. But, you're not thinking like a corporation: Alta has assets that a 4 billion dollar corp could use to slide through development deals. Alta themselves can't even fund a properly designed and working website. Ultimately, it's really the AltaBird prize.

    Since my kid isn't free at Brighton anymore I was thinking about going back to Alta next year. I decided to do Snowbird instead since there's the parking thing, the bus thing, a family pass is $300 cheaper, spring access, and we get two free nights at the Cliff.

    eta: Oh yeah, there's also the issue of holding Grizzly hostage for ransom, and the general vibe of the Maughan era just rubs me the wrong way. Add all that up and I'm certainly not paying more money to ski there.

    I just noticed that they slipped in + tax to their pricing. They have been charging 80 + year olds $50 for their pass, I had assumed the $50 was to recover what Alta pays UTA for bus passes. The senior pass is still $50 + sales tax.

    • Eases early morning traffic congestion resulting from limited parking available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
      • Alta skiers will no longer need to arrive hours before first chair to secure a parking spot on weekends and holidays.
      • Ski area employees will be able to arrive on time and prepare the ski area and parking areas for you.

    • Manage the ski experience by limiting the number of skiers to available terrain and lift capacity.

    The $25 no show fee if you don't cancel by 6 am the day before is gonna be interesting. I forsee a black market for getting your reservation scanned by someone else so you dont get dinged.

    Yeah, imagine when you have bad luck and get jammed up in the canyon, miss out on a pow day, and have to pay $25 for NOT using your season pass.

    Yea, that's tough because in effect it's more like 36 hours in advance for those that don't wake up prior to 6 AM on a friday.

    Upper LCC weekend touring is gonna be like the olden' days!
