Alta North Side Winter Parking Update

The Town of Alta and Alta Ski Area will operate a permit-based parking management system for public, "north side" parking areas in Alta during ski season 2022-2023. While some aspects of the program remain tentative, we expect the program to operate similarly to last year, including the following details:

  • The North Side Parking Program will be in effect between December 16th, 2022 and April 16th, 2023.
  • The Town and Alta Ski Area will consider all north side parking areas to be one parking facility eligible for use by any authorized permittee.
  • The Town and Interstate Parking are under contract for Interstate to operate the permit program for a second year. Interstate will manage billing for permits, maintain a database of information about permitted vehicles, and enforce permit requirements.
  • North Side Permits will cost $250 and will be allocated to residential and local business users who’ve historically relied on off-site, public parking in Alta.
  • Seasonal Permits will be available for those who expect to park in Alta for 60 nights or more during the dates of the program. These permits allow for 1 vehicle at a time to be parked in north side parking areas, and permitees will be able to associate up to 2 license plates with each permit. Permittees can make additional one-night reservations for guests. 
  • “Flexible” permits, which allow the holder to make up to 80 vehicle-night reservations, are available for those who need a variable amount of parking when they are in Alta overnight, but are in Alta less frequently than full-time or full-time seasonal residents.
  • Alta Ski Area, the Town of Alta, and Interstate Parking continue to explore improvements in the technology interface that permittees used to make nightly reservations last winter.

The Town of Alta and Alta Ski Area will host a virtual open house meeting on Tuesday September 13th from 4 PM to 6 PM to discuss these and other details of the program, and take questions and feedback from program users. For information about how to participate in the meeting, click here.
