Alta’s Earth Day Is Coming
The 10th annual Alta Earth Day 2019 celebration is headed to Utah Saturday, April 20th. There’s no better way to honor all the natural resources and beautiful landscapes of the Wasatch than playing amid the epic conditions of our 2018-19 winter season (so far 500+ inches!).
Alta Earth Day 2019 is a free event honoring the community’s vision to build awareness and appreciation for Utah’s environment. The day’s celebration includes a display of environmentally conscious vendors and organizations, ski and snowboard recycling with Utah Recycling Alliance, a Fix-it Bike Clinic with Salt Lake Bicycle Collective, and other activities.
What’s On Tap For Alta Earth Day 2019
Throughout the day there will be opportunities for people to get in touch with their ‘wild’ side with a naturalist snowshoe tour, Tour with a Ranger, Arborist ski around and Alta birding tour followed with an après ski celebration at Our Lady of the Snows at 4:30 pm. Enjoy live music, food and beverages and an opportunity drawing to support the sustainability efforts of the Alta community.
“This event speaks Alta. A fun casual gathering by Alta patrons to celebrate all that Alta provides by way of its natural environment, skiing, and community mountain experience. It’s my favorite day of the season next to powder days,” Alta resident Maura Olivos.
The Alta community is pleased to host eco-minded vendors with on the snow demos and displays at Wildcat Base the day of the event from 9 am to 4 pm. Featured vendors include Coalatree Organics, Momentum Recycling, Peterson Equipment – PistenBully, Utah Recycling Alliance, Norwex, Xistential Love, Oligie, Meier Skis, and more.
