If you are reading this, you are probably planning a ski vacation, and Alta is one of the destinations you are considering. If you are planning your first ski vacation to Alta, you are probably trying to decide where you’ll stay. Of course, we hope Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge becomes your Alta home, but we also want to give you a few tips to make sure you know what to expect once you arrive. As you may have noticed, our guests tend to come back again and again and again, and we like it like that.
Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge boasts one of the best locations in skiing. That is not subjective; it is a fact. We are steps from Alta Ski Area’s Wildcat and Collins lifts, two of the ski industry’s iconic lifts. We are known for our hospitality and welcoming environment.
We offer five different room types including large suites, small suites, large guest rooms, small guest rooms, and dormitories. Our rates include breakfast and a 4-course dinner. The Saloon hosts Coffee Talk from 6:30 – 7:00 each morning. The Top of the Lodge is where you’ll find Après ski and tea (with cocktails available for purchase) from 4 – 5 p.m.
We’re not kidding when we say we’d like to become your Alta home. Many of our guests have been visiting the lodge for decades. In fact, they wouldn’t dream of skiing elsewhere. It’s the terrain AND the Lodge that keep them coming back.
Due to our ski-in, ski-out location, we also serve as a day lodge for the Alta Ski Area. Our Slopeside Café serves breakfast, lunch, coffee, and beers to hungry skiers from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and our Saloon is the place for famous pizza, beer and embellishing your day on the slopes.
Our lodge was built in 1962. We’ve updated and renovated over the years, but the bones of the building are 56 years old. The lodge is classic, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff will treat you like family. If you are looking for 5-star luxury, Goldminer’s is probably not for you. If you are looking for an authentic ski lodge experience, we look forward to answering any questions you may have.
Feel free to poke around our website and learn more about our history, our rooms, and our dining. We’d love to see you at the Lodge this winter.
