The goal of the Alta Historical Society (AHS) is to preserve Alta’s rich history, from the mining era of the mid-1800s to the development of Alta as one of the world’s finest skiing destinations. (Mission Statement) Through our web site, we highlight past events, stories about notable characters, photographs, and a map of historical sites in Alta.
The Alta Historical Society, Friends of Alta and ACE will host the Alta Gala 2017, a fund raiser for Alta’s three non-profit organizations at La Caille Restaurant at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon Friday April 7th. Thanks to all the supporters and everyone who attended it has bee a great success for the past 11 years. You can learn more about the Alta Gala and buy your tickets by clicking here.
Each year the Alta Gala selects an individual, or individuals, to give the Stellar Award in recognition for their contributions to Alta's environment, culture and history. This year we honor Trainer Mahon, long time resident of Alta and Avalanche expert for his many contributions to our community.
