Cassie Levitt Dippo
Cassie was born in New York City the same year that her parents built a house in Alta. Several years later, in 1959, they bought the Alta Lodge. She can legitimately say she’s been connected to Alta her entire life. Cassie spent her childhood summers exploring the “nooks and crannies” of Alta as well as strolling among the wildflowers of Albion Basin with her family. By the age of ten she was doing it on her own. Cassie is never more at peace than when she is hiking among the mountains of Alta. Cassie and her family have traveled extensively, but never have found mountain meadows that could compare with the abundance and diversity of flowers found in her own “backyard” – Alta. It is a treasure that must be preserved.
During her adult life Cassie has worked in Alta at the Alta Lodge. She spent fifteen years lobbying for Utah Common Cause at the state level, serving on both the local board, as board member and board chair, as well as serving on the Common Cause National Governing Board.
