Alta / Snowbird, Utah
Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge, just steps away from the base of Alta Ski Area’s Collins and Wildcat chairlifts, is the closest après spot to Alta’s famed terrain. Yes, the location is unbeatable, but it's the ambiance that seals the deal. Alta locals and visitors alike are often found reliving their ski day in the comfort of the saloon over beers and nachos. Some of the stories may be embellished, but who are we to judge?
