Deep Powder House


Open 8am-6pm seasonally.

The Deep Powder House has been serving Alta skiers since 1953. Access the shop from the stairwell shared with the Alta Lodge off the main street.

 The Deep Powder House is Utah's oldest ski shop, and is home to many of our most knowledgable custom ski boot fitters. Maximize your time on the slopes by coming to the Deep Powder House where we can get you in and out quickly.

Wether you need your next Gore-Tex jacket, a pair of goggles, or ski boots we have expert staff ready to answer any questions. Easily reached by taking the rope tow up from the Wildcat Base, The Deep Powder House is an excellent location for those looking to buy new skis. Our demo program allows you to test out this years best skis by Volkl, Blizzard, Rossignol, Salomon, and Armada. Try multiple skis over the couse of your visit to find the perfect pair and we will apply 2 paid days towards the purchase price.

Come in for a boot assessment and our experienced boot fitters will help you identify which new boot is best for your unique anatomy, skiing style, and goals; or we will work with your current boots to improve performance and comfort.

Product expertise and short waits, make the Deep Powder House the favorite of many instructors, patrollers, and local rippers.
