  • Went there early January and was a nice walk up to the lake. Pretty cold and windy still, with only a little bit of snow. As per other reviews no directions once you walk from the car park. The scenic stops on the way have pretty nice views. Overall a good place to visit.
  • Lake alta is around 45 min to 1 hour one way trek from the remarkable ski area. You just have to follow the yellow color sign wooden marks to your way to the top. There is no other proper sings on this way but the view is breathtaking. I went there in dec 2018 and a part of lake was frozen.
