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.

Family Memories

A quick walk through our wood-paneled hallways reveals how much we treasure our guests, their families, and the memories they make while in our care. We understand that your time here is priceless so we’ve worked hard to create a place where you can come to ski, relax, and most important, spend time with loved ones making memories that will last a lifetime.

Why Alta, Utah for Your Ski Vacation

Last year, we posted a series of blog posts introducing Utah, Alta, and Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge to potential first-time visitors. This year, we’d like to further that idea and share why Alta, Utah is the perfect choice for a ski vacation for both first time and longtime visitors.
