The Goldminer’s Daughter, simply known as the GMD, is perhaps the most friendly and party-oriented lodge in Little Cottonwood Canyon. The blocky building gives the overall feeling that has been likened to a postwar Midwest Lutheran women’s college, with a Denny’s attached to it. The rooms are the kind where the headboards are bolted to the wall, and the bathrooms have those orangey heat lamps in the ceilings. It’s a place where every year a group of Brits in their 60s invades for three weeks each winter and throws gin parties that are legendary.

Located just a few steps from the base of the Collins and Wildcat lifts, it is the closest thing Alta has to a base lodge. The Goldminer’s Saloon located inside is where canyon employees go to eat when they are sick of the employee food at the lodges where they work. Doubles start at $322-$472 per person per night, breakfast and dinner included.; 800-453-4573
