History of the Snowpine Lodge
While Snowpine Lodge is one of the newest buildings in Alta, it’s history runs deep and it’s also the oldest building in the region. The original structure was constructed when mining was the primary industry within the Albion Basin. As the town and surrounding area grew, the building also developed and served an important role in Alta’s history. Since its inception, Snowpine Lodge has been a gathering place for the community. One of the first residents of Alta, “Mayor” George Watson, used to tell people stories around the fireplace in the 1940s.
