You can’t have a conversation about Utah’s storied ski history without talking about Alta. It would be like trying to talk about New York without the Statue of Liberty or California without Hollywood. Originally a mining town-which is where the name Goldminer’s Daughter came from-Alta began the evolution into the skier’s paradise we now know when the first iconic Collins lift was constructed in 1938. Over the years, Alta has been the proving ground for many professional skiers and has become a staple in the skiing world.
Alta Community Enrichment
Alta Historical Society
Our Lady of the Snows is the only church in the town of Alta, and Catholic Mass is held at 5:00 pm on Sunday evenings throughout the winter ski season. In addition, various interfaith services are held on selected Saturdays throughout the season. All are welcome.
This building serves dual purpose for the community as a location for many Alta Community Enrichment (ACE) events.
