Forget the resort experience - the food, facilities, etc. are whatever. The snow is where it's at. This is a great resort for learners. It has excellent beginner's and intermediate slopes, along with expert terrain. I won't get into the skier/boarder debate, but I enjoy the less crowded feel and the ski-only experience. I've taken lessons there a few times... More

We've travelled to Utah for short and long ski trips for many years. I've been here in every type of condition: whiteout, bluebird powder, skied-out, ice, spring...I've participated in Alta-Snowbird debates. The last time here, a friend gave us a tour after it had snowed. Alta kicks the crap out of almost any ski area on Earth when the snow... More

I live in the South and don't get to ski but once a year but I always come here. In my family we have different skiing abilities but everyone can find what they want at Alta! It's a skiers only area and that makes it a great place to learn to ski. It is a lovely drive up the canyon... More

It's not a resort... If you want that go to Deer Valley or Vail... Although I admit the tray passed hot chocolate served as you ski off the lift in Beaver Creek is pretty nice:-) Alta is small but skis big, gets more pow than anyone else in North America... And no snow boarders are allowed on the lifts (hike... More

Really nice hidden gem that not a lot of people visit! Never overcrowded the handful times I've been here, and the snow was great! Friendly staff as well! Wish I could have gotten back here this last season but an injury kept me off the mountain! Really a great area, highly recommend! Oh, SKIERS ONLY! No boards!

I had the pleasure of taking a California church high school youth group skiing in the park city area for a week. I brought my California powder jacket and 501 blue jeans to ski in :-) 400 bucks later I was looking good in my new jumpsuit and staying very warm. Californians be aware it is 50 degrees colder than... More

There is not much that has not been said about ALta. There is something there for everyone. The vertical is a little les than some experienced skiers may prefer, but the snow quality and variety of terrain are first rate.

I loved the fact that there were no snowboarders. The trails were groomed to perfection. While it was a rather warm day (early April), my husband and I did some of our best skiing. Can't wait to come back next year.

I can definitely recommend Alta for a day of good skiing. Enjoyed it a lot every time I went. Do note that snowboarders are not allowed so if you are a snowboarder, Snowbird is the closest resort to visit. Will definitely come back!
