Went with my son over MLK weekend. First time at Alta and we are intermediate skiers. Terrain for everyone from beginners to experts. Liked that off of every lift one can ski easy to advanced terrain. Never had to wait for a lift and always found uncrowded areas.

The various trails all seemed like service trails--like I was constantly trying to get to a slope but never found it...Okay, when I did find "a slope" it was relatively short, and cut out to more service trails, and blue feeder trails. One good bowl. Go to Snowbird.

Alta has best snow quality and quantity of any place I have experienced, the terrain is great and the entire place is run at state of the art level.

Arrived at Alta 2 days after 2 foot dumping and stayed at Goldminer's Daughter Lodge right at the bast of Collins Lift. I will keep this short: 1) Skiing Alta is mystical as it was 40 years ago. Nothing in the 48 states compare to it's coziness, toughness, and of course it's snow.They still limit uphill traffic and the mountain... More

Over the years , we have taken our children ages 19 and 21 to a variety of ski resorts. This resort was fantastic. We skied over the Christmas holiday and the weather and the snow were perfect. There were challenging runs for our children and less intense runs for myself. The fact that this resort does not allow snowboarders was... More

Oh my goodness, we thought Deer Valley was good! This place beats all the ski fields we've (ever!) seen. It is easy to get to, just the next resort along from Snowbird. It has lots of parking and easy access to the ticket office (and restrooms). It has a more relaxed feel to it than Snowbird or Deer Valley and... More
