Because of its proximity to the Pacific, winters here are mild, and daytime temperatures in the village rarely dip below 20F, even in January and February, the biggest snow "dump" months. Summers are spectacular, warm enough for a dip in Alta Lake, but cool enough at night to warrant a light sweater. Fall brings festival season and colorful foliage. (The weeks that follow spring skiing are the mud season, but the lack of crowds can make this the great time for a quiet visit.)
