Carpool to Alta on certain dates and enjoy preferred parking at the Wildcat base lot. Private vehicles with 2 or 3 and more passengers (driver included), on the days of the study, will receive preferential parking closer to the lifts and the lodge.

Alta in partnership with the Alta Environmental Center the University of Utah’s Environmental and Sustainability Studies Internship Program will test the carpool parking strategy. Results will provide Alta Ski Area a better understanding of its guests’ habits, allowing the ski area to determine future parking needs that are both convenient and support environmental friendly initiatives.

An optional survey will be given to the public regarding their experience with this new parking strategy.

The parking test and surveys for this study will take place on the following dates:

 March 2nd, 4th, and 5th (M/W/F)

 March 9th, 11th, and 12th (M/W/F)
