For the month of January, Alta Ski Area will be celebrating 75 seasons of some of the best skiing in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Known for its snowboarder-free slopes and rugged terrain beloved by big mountain rippers, Alta will be offering a slew of special events next month to commemorate its birthday.
In tune with Alta's tradition of being a "home mountain" for many, the ski area will actually be doling out quite a few "party favors" for its own birthday. Alta's 75th birthday sweepstakes is open for entry, which includes a grand prize getaway, and other prizes such as complementary lodging and free lift tickets. You can enter the sweepstakes here.
Perks also include lodging specials, such as free demo boot and ski rentals included with a booking at Alta Peruvian Lodge, 20 percent off nightly rates at the Goldminer's Daughter Lodge, and special packages at the mountain's condo units.
Skiers onsite for the celebration will be able to enjoy a birthday torchlight parade, as well as other monthly events. And, with some luck, maybe they'll be treated to one of Alta's iconic powder days.
