Snow. Lots of it. In 1985 Utah began its reputation as The Greatest Snow on Earth, and deservedly so. More than 500 inches of gloriously fluffy powder snow falls on the Little Cottonwood Canyon regions of the 160-mile Wasatch Range in the state’s southeastern corner. Legions of snow lovers—skiers, snowboarders, all-around winter fanatics—descend on the area every year to revel in piles of soft white gold.The mountains share that same verve in summer. Valleys overflow with rainbow-colored wildflowers, high alpine streams flow clear and cold through emerald green forests, and the sky is hypnotically blue—the perfect playground for active outdoor pursuits like hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and backpacking.
For many, Alta is the nerve center of this real-life daydream and one of the premier places to take it all in is the Snowpine Club, located at its namesake lodge at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Snowpine is brand new, with its first guests arriving in January of this year, but the place is steeped in the mining era roots of the original lodge built at this same location in 1941. So what’s here for today’s guests and visitors? In a word, it’s all here. The 2019 version of the lodge has captured the heady vibe of days yore, with a few more perks.
Prepare to be pampered, Snowpine style. How does this sound? Top shelf restaurant and bar, outdoor spas, private ski lockers, saunas, concierge, and private transportation to and from the airport. Nice.
And those are just a few of the amenities offered at the Snowpine Club, Alta’s premier private lodging club with world-class accommodations complemented by tasteful amenities, personal service for the length of your stay, and incomparable annual benefits. Indeed, the list of rewards available at Snowpine is almost too good to be true.
But it’s the real thing. Welcome to luxury, high alpine style.
The best benefits, all year long
Let’s start with the good stuff that comes with Snowpine Club membership (in addition to all that deep snow!). Here’s what comes your way every year:
It starts with getting here. You are treated to private, round-tip transportation on four occasions of your choosing. Once you’re here, three giant lockers in a private locker room are available during Club weeks to stow your gear.
In the locker room is a ski valet and your boards get the treatment, too, with four annual ski tune-ups. For those days when you don’t ski (say what?), the club offers long-term equipment and clothing storage. Not only that, the ski locker room serves up complimentary continental breakfast, beverages, and snacks to fuel a day on the slopes.
Eat well and pamper yourself with a very generous spa and food and beverage credit, updated annually.
Take a Club Vacation
Snowpine Club members receive two full Club vacation weeks in summer and winter in one of our luxurious Club Suites. The suites are loaded with amenities such as streaming TV and cable, and the rooms welcome five to seven adults. Interested in a Lodge room instead? Convert your Club Suite Week to a four-person Lodge room (as available).
Remember those days of schlepping unwieldly ski equipment and puffy jackets through airports like an overburdened Sherpa? Those days are behind you because Club members are treated to long-term gear storage in private lockers housed in a climate-controlled wing of the facility. Just think; your skis, clothing, and other gear will be safe and sound until you return on your next trip. All you need to do is show up, grab your stuff, and hit the slopes. That’s traveling done right.
There’s nothing better after an exhilarating day on the hill than winding down next to a crackling orange fire with family or best friends, especially when you started the day with a hearty complimentary breakfast and kept fueled with snacks and beverages during the big ski days.
It’s all here in the members-only Snowpine Club Lounge, as well as a business center to keep an eye on the real world if you must. A valet is on site to help store your snow gear and an adjacent locker room provides accommodations for cleaning up after skiing on checkout day.
Come stay at the Club.
