Unbeatable Location

Getting here is easy; leaving is another story.

Nestled at the foot of Alta Ski Resort and a short shuttle from Snowbird, the Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge is your home away from home while you ski the steepest and deepest Utah has to offer. The “Greatest Snow on Earth” is extremely easy to access, which means you get to spend more time skiing and less time traveling. What are you waiting for? Just 25 miles or 45 minutes from Salt Lake International Airport, the Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge gives exceptional access to Utah’s world-renowned skiing.

The Goldminer's Advantage

We want your time with us to be as memorable and comfortable as possible, so while you're here get pampered at the spa or enjoy lunch with friends at the cafe. Here are just a few key perks of staying at your favorite lodge.


What's new...

Will we see you this Spring? It's not too late.

It’s not over yet! In fact, there’s slightly less than one month of daily skiing and riding left and a base hovering around 150”, which means these last few weeks will not disappoint, and, as they say, “April showers bring May flowers”.

What If?

You might say one of the best parts of a ski vacation is getting to know the locals. As a skier, even a skier who only skis one week a year, there is always that ‘what if’ thought in the back on your mind while buckling your boots, stepping into your skis, and riding chairlifts.

Is your family ready to earn their ski stripes?

Michael Feren was raised with the understanding that Alta is where you earn your ski stripes. When he became a father himself, he decided he would introduce his kids to skiing and let them find their passion for the sport before introducing them to Alta.
