The town of Alta is kicking off a month of fun for skiers and lodge guests in April as part of the annual Alta in April festivities. With warmer weather and a solid snowpack, skiers can take advantage of community events and cheap ski packages for the whole month.

Alta in April commences with the annual Alta Gala at the La Caille restaurant on Friday, April 4 to benefit three community non-profits: the Alta Community Enrichment, Friends of Alta and the Alta Historical Society. Tickets are $125 per person and include live music, dancing, swag bags and a silent auction from 7–11:30 p.m. Tickets are available on the event’s website. 

For budget-savvy skiers, Alf’s Restaurant will be lighting up the BBQ for $10 beers and brats on Saturday, April 5. For the remainder of the month, skiers can rake in free ski demos, $25 spa treatments, an Easter egg hunt, an Earth Day awareness celebration and plenty more community-driven activities.
