Alta, UT -
It's no vacation to plan to take the whole family skiing. Where to stay, where to eat, how to get there, and how to get the family from the lodge room to the mountain all seem like obstacles. Recognizing this, when Bill Levitt bought the Alta Lodge in 1959, he wanted the Lodge to be a place where families were always welcome and where parents could relax and enjoy their ski vacation with their children. Since then, multiple generations of many families have returned to Alta Lodge for their annual ski experience together.
