About Snowpine

History of Snowpine Lodge in Alta

The original structure where Snowpine Lodge now stands was erected when mining was the primary industry locally. While we are unsure of the exact year the structure was created, we know that J.G. Stillwell – manager of Emma Mine – converted the building from a general store to a post office in 1878. In 1938, Snowpine Lodge was given its current name and declared a Skier Lodge. Since its inception, it’s been a gathering place for the community; Mayor Watson was known to tell young folk stories around the fireplace in the early 1940s.

After a complete rebuild, Snowpine Lodge reopened its doors January of 2019, with the mission to reflect the charm of times past while embodying the tasteful elegance found in the best ski lodges across the globe.
