Great place for skiers! 9/13/2009

Since I have moved to Utah, this is my home away from home. Since it is so close, feel like alta is in salt lake's back yard. Great place for locals looking to ski without the frills of the other resorts which can just attract more newbee crowds. Pros: Powder Powder Powder Cons: 0 more

Most pure skiing around 1/28/2003

Good challenges. Tough. Not for beginners, no matter what the literature says. Great ski instructors. Greg Underwood is tops--both alpine and telemark. Rustler Lodge is like home, but on the pricey side. more

Let it snow! 1/28/2003

Alta always has the best snow. The runs are challenging...this is not a mountain for beginners. The lifts are slow compared to the more upscale resorts but they have added some new ones over the past few years. You won't find a better value unless you go to Brighton or Solitude. All 3 are great resorts. Here, the focus is on skiing. more

The Best in the West 1/15/2003

Light Wasatch powder is a substance that is simply impossible to overrate. Alta acts as a catcher's mit for such great snow. With awesome terrain, incredible snow, no snowboarders, and a small ski area type feel, Alta simply has no match. Pros: snow!!!, terrain, no snowboarders more

boarders beware 1/3/2003

Without a doubt, the finest skiing I have ever experienced. No lift lines ever, incredible powder skiing, great terrain, no snowboarders...it adds up to a great skiing experience. The last time I skied there, it snowed so much I couldn't find my tracks from one run to the next on the same run. The guys in the ski shop were whining that the snow was getting tracked up. How spoiled are these guys? On a day that any mere human would have killed for, they were complaining that it wasn't snowing hard enough! By the way, it's also cheap...the best value in the USA. Pros: no line, the best powder, great terrain Cons: can't think of any more

Best there is 11/14/2002

this resort rules. so much terrain, so little time. if you know your way around, you'll never run out of somewhere to go. Pros: snow, lines, price more

Alta rocks! Even this boarder thinks so 11/14/2002

Years ago we started skiing Utah. Brighton, Solitude, Alta and Snowbird are all within 15 minutes of our vacation house in Sandy. Alta is, hands down, the best! When we started snowboarding a few years ago, we had to go elsewhere. We LOVE boarding now. But when I was a skier, I always hated what boarders did to the snow, and how out of control so many of the new guys were, so I totally understand Alta's choice. Hey -- it's privately owned and fully paid for. They can do whatever the heck they want. And for me . . . I love that place so much that from time to time I'll strap on a couple of planks just so I can go! Beautiful! (another side note -- they have just about the cheapest lift tickets in the Rockies!) Pros: powder!, tree skiing!, inexpensive! Cons: no knuckle dragers, :-) more

This is the place 11/13/2002

I managed to ski Alta last March the friday after that 2-day, 43 inch storm. Pure nirvana. Ive skied almost everything in the Rockies, Tahoe, Bachelor, Mammoth and Crystal. Nothing comes even close to that day. I still try to get to a new area at least once a year, but Alta is always on my list every year. Variety is nice but when you're ready to settle down with the one that will never let you down, Alta is the place. Pros: snow, price more

Alta is the best ever!!! 11/12/2002

I've been skiing since I was 3 years old and come from a long line of racers. I've skiied Whistler-Blackcomb, Sun Peaks, Lake Tahoe--quite frankly, nothing compares to Alta. Whistler is too busy, and no one else has the same quality of snow. This mountain is unbelievable. Try it--you're missing out if you haven't. I'm a confirmed Alta-holic and nothing else satisfies!!! Plus, there's the cutest little restaurant half-way down the hill...totally fun to do stop and grab a bite to eat there. Pros: Killer powder, Fun atmosphere, Well-maintained more

Alta greatest snow on earth 11/12/2002

Alta is by far the best resort in utah. Situated at the top of little cottonwood caynon, Alta receices more quality snow than all other resorts in utah. Its highly deversited runs and enormus skiable acres make it the best ski resort in the usa Pros: no boarders, best snow, steep and deep Cons: slow lifts more

Best Snow in the World 11/12/2002

Alta has the best skiing in the world. There is an abundance of snow and a lot of powder. Alta has diverse trails for everyone to try out. Pros: No Snowboarders, Skiing, Lines more

Alta is for true skiers only 11/12/2002

I love that Alta is one of the few places I can go and ski without the annoyance of snowboarders. It's wonderful snow and in a superb location. I love it. Truly, Utah has the greatest snow on earth. Pros: Not Crowded, No Snowboarding, Great Scenery more

Some of the Best Skiing in the Country 5/12/2002

Alta is one of those places that you have to experience to believe. Alta gets more then 500 inches of snow a year and it has the best powder skiing anywhere. Usually over the course of the year we ski in hip deep powder at least a half-a-dozen times. I've skied a lot in the Northeast (on ice), Colorado, Idaho, etc. Alta has the best and most varied terrain and the absolute best snow on any mountain. It's very reasonable for a lift ticket which ran about $34 last year and the lift lines are very short which insures that you'll get your money's worth. On a good snow day leave early as the canyon road (for the most part) is a single lane so traffic gets congested from time to time. Pros: Snow, No Snowboards Cons: Canyon Road, No Snowboards more

  • In Short
    Alta is famous for its deep powder and heritage. This resort limits the number of skiers in order to protect each person's experience. Just a mile beyond Snowbird, at the top of...
