How do I get from The Chalet Day Johns to Alta and Snowbird? The Chalet Day Johns is located very close to where the Bypass Road rejoins the State Highway 210 (the main road), below the Alta Peruvian Lodge. To get to Alta from this home, you have a couple of easy options. You can walk to the Alta Peruvian Lodge and from there ski across the cat track over to the lifts. You can also jump on the free Alta Resort Shuttle which makes a continuous loop of the Bypass Road during daytime hours. The shuttle runs continuously during the day. It will typically take just a few minutes to get up to the Collins or Sunnyside base areas at Alta. After skiing, you can utilize this same shuttle to bring you back to the property or you can ski home from Alta as well by accessing the Wildcat Access area and crossing the snowbridge back to the Peruvian Acres neighborhoods.

To get to Snowbird to go skiing, you would just take that Alta Resort Shuttle to The View Condominiums stop to ski down the intermediate “Whodunnit” run to Snowbird. At the end of the day, you can return to that same location to hop back on the Resort Shuttle to go back to The Chalet Day Johns.

Important note: Alta Resort Shuttle runs mid-December to early April.
