Target demographics: Alta is composed of creative, active families, seasonal and year round employees, professional athletes, artists, and guests who choose to stay, recreate, or visit in Alta and Little Cottonwood Canyon. The Town of Alta’s population can fluctuate between 300 in the summer to 3,000 in the winter season. The majority of our population base is in low to moderate income as determined by HUD standards; many live in small employee quarters and have limited transportation to get to the Salt Lake Valley. The families live in caretaker apartments, condos and single family homes. Our community does extend to the Salt Lake Valley; many who recreate in our town have come to consider Alta as their home.

The Jordan School District opened a one room school in Alta in 2002, it is housed at the Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge, ranges from K-8th grades with about 17 children.

Geographic areas served: Salt Lake County

Mission:
Alta Commmunity Enrichment (ACE) is a non-profit organization that creates opportunities in the community for individual and group participation in arts, cultural events, and education.
Results:
The history of cultural activities created and sponsored by community volunteers of Alta dates back to the mid-seventies. ACE began in 1995 when community members recognized the need for professional coordination of these successful grassroots events. That same year, the Our Lady of the Snows Center building was completed and identified as a venue for ACE. A very successful season of programming during the winter of 1996-1997 catalyzed the formal organization of ACE. In 1997 our organization was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Since inception ACE has served as the Alta Arts Council by offering quality and diverse events and programs for free or very little cost at all to its attendees.

ACE now offers year round programming.  Our events range from The Wildflower and Snowflake Festivals, Welcome to Winter Slide Show, Cinematography Show, Art Shows, Art Instruction, Dance Instruction, Avalanche Education, Natural Health Education, Live Music, Music Instruction, Childrens Art Classes, Childrens Dance Classes, Culinary Craft Instruction, Community Potlucks, to name a few!

ACE highlights local artists and educators from Alta and the Salt Lake Valley. We work closely with the Utah Avalanche Center, Cottonwood Canyons Foundation, US Forest Service, the Town of Alta, Alta Historical Society and Friends of Alta.

We also interact weekly with Alta’s one room public school, establishing new programming that will help further enrich the lives of our local children.
