Alta is rightly famous for powder and steep runs. Aside from the morning rush on Collins, lines are rarely bad. While it's not a huge resort, there is extensive terrain to find for good skiers. I've been going for several years and am still finding new pockets. Adventurous intermediates looking to improve will be happy, too. If you just want... More

I've skied in Colorado and Utah has much better snow, particularly Alta. Even better is that Alta is for skiers only, no snowboarding allowed. It's only a 40 minute ride from the airport. More greens than Snowbird, which is great for families and first time skiers.

Just returned from a week at Alta Lodge, skiing daily at Alta. It was an all around wonderful experience. The lodge is rustic and simple, but very comfortable, with delicious food and warm surroundings. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and friendly and make everything as easy as possible (lift cards at front desk, room moves, shuttle to and from airport,... More

Alta Ski Resort is a gem for those who truly enjoy their skiing. It has everythink from steep and deep chutes to beautifully groomed cruisers and snow is excellent. I go skiing out west each March with my wife and we have found the snow at Alta to be the most reliable. We have stood on straw at Aspen /... More

It's hard to talk about Alta without talking about Snowbird. They are only two miles apart and on a year-to-year basis share the best snow for skiing anywhere in the world. However, the two are very different in character and very different in terrain. People typically prefer one or the other. (For example, some people love the Snowbird tram, and... More

Great skiing. Varied terrain. Something for all levels. I was a beginner/intermediate skier when I started coming here. There was plenty to ski. As I have gotten better I have found more than enough to keep me happy. Beautiful area. I would be happy just to ride the lifts for the view. Best vibe around. People are here to ski... More
