Great experience. It is geared more towards skiers who want a very vertical experience. However, even if that isn't your preference the scenery, the snow, the people, the atmosphere...it's an awesome place. I've never heard a bad word uttered about it either.

FYI – there are no footrests on the chair lifts at Alta. I realize it is sacrilege to say anything negative about Alta. Everybody loves Alta, especially the locals. But, as someone who has skied all over the western US as well as a number of places in the northeast (where we live), I have come to appreciate footrests on... More

This ski resort offer great ski slopes for beginner and some upper lifts will pull you up to slopes for more advanced skiers. Really like the lift design, even place to go over the mountain ridge to other ski resort. Awesome place, and some great powder snow available even in end of season.

Alta is the best ski resort I have ever been to. Why? Why, if they have a limited number of runs and don't allow snowboarders? I think I just answered my own question. No snowboarders and no big-resort pretentiousness? Reasonable lift ticket rates and lunch for under $15? Um, yeah, sign me up. Here endeth the review.

This tour was exceptionally beneficial in terms of eco-tourism education. Did a small hike and had lunch. Beautiful pinewood restoration effort being done through their nurseries. Kudos!!!

Alta is a fantastic mountain for skiers! Trails split off for those who want to ski through the trees - and can still meet up with those who chose to stay on the actual run. The lifts are great, very little wait time - so you can get back to enjoying the snow ASAP!

Colorado calls them Utah snobs. Skiing either State is heaven, but Alta and Snowbird give Utah the edge

The neat thing about Alta was how the trails split off for varying skill levels but then all meet up again to continue your journey down the mountain.

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
