Winter Advisory:

Alta Vista is located on a road that is on the regular snow removal route of the Town of Truckee.  Private driveway snow removal is performed on seasonal contract. The driveway is level with the road and easy to get in and out. Commensurate with the 7300 ft. elevation of Alta Vista, heavy snow and snow drifts can occur, and -- as applies to most winter sport resorts -- we advise our renters to use a 4-WD or, better, an AWD vehicle and to plan to arrive before 4PM if very heavy snowfall is in the forecast. AC Views or the owners will not be responsible for any losses to renters due to snow conditions.
