The town of Alta, which includes: Alta Ski Area and Snowbird, have been under strict interlodge restrictions since Monday evening, and it’s ‘most likely’ the longest ever consecutive interlodge in Alta’s history.
Alta has been locked down with interlodge for going on 59 hours!
Interlodge restrictions require that everybody in the town of Alta stay inside due to high avalanche danger. This includes people skiing or recreating.
Officials can fine individuals who leave their lodging.
UDOT Tweeted that crews are currently doing avalanche mitigation work on LCC’s SR210. They are not sure when the road will reopen.
