Guys, Can you please suggest a place to stay near Alta? No car, will bus from the airport.
Anyone got a couch for rent? Beer? :)
Will be skiing the mountain, and possibly the snowcat.
Crystal Inn seems to be in the city... what if it snows and the pass closes? :)=
Couches in the town of Alta are at quite a premium. The cheapest place to stay up is in a dormitory room at one of the lodges. Meals are included and since your on your own there is plenty of time for socializing at the bars.
The pass is usually cleared in the morning after a storm but there can be massive traffic delays so little hope of getting up there before whatever is opened is pillaged. Avoiding that traffic is is the real advantage of staying up at Alta or Snowbird. However, in the rare event of a storm bad enough to raise the risk of avalanches reaching the valley they will declare an interlodge and confine everyone indoors until they can do avy control.
