Deer Valley is for the very rich incapable of skiing. Park Cities is similar but also overpriced. Solitude is wonderful but it is solitude. Snowbird is slick modern with an inattention to ski conditions. Alta is simply the best ski resort, no others close. Accomodations and restaurants are lackluster, but if you are an athletic skier wanting bargain lift ticket... More

No snowfall but still plenty of snow, even for March. Jokingly, no punk snowboarders. Quality runs, little lines, great grooming. Without a doubt, one of my favorite places to ski!

I like to ski on the "unshaved mountain". Alta offers a wide variety of terrain. skiers with good manners, and wonderful snow. The price of a lift ticket is reasonable and no obnoxious parking charges. No boarders means no wild, rude and crazy kids trying to run you over, and, most important, a ski run free from being shaved off... More

This is where real skiers go to go skiing. Unbelievable, long runs, great snow, higher altitude, and great staff. There's a low-key ambience of nice attitudes, beautiful surroundings, and cool skiing. It may sound snobbish too but no snowboarders. Just nice to be among the plankers. I love this place and it is now my number one choice for a... More

Alta is our favorite spot to ski (no snowboarding.) It is beautiful and spread out so you can try lots of different terrain. Snow is usually great here, but Utah has suffered low snowfall and warm temperatures. We still found plenty of places to ski at all levels.

Love Alta. Easy to get to from SLC. Great resort with varied terrain. Experts, groomers and plenty of boot hikes to steep and deep. Nice employees, good chairlifts and lodge areas. Less crowded than Snowbird and Park City. Did I mention no snowboarders?!?! Enough said.

They have a special $10 for cheapskates after 3:30 in the afternoon. Buy your ticket early and be at the lift at 3:30. Can't get a better deal than that. It is not one of the advanced slopes, but still a lot of fun.

I have a long history and a strong favorable bias toward Alta Resort. I grew up in the Salt Lake City area and have skied at Alta all my life. It has been a number of years since I skied at all but decided it was time to get back on the boards. Yesterday I experienced one of those lifetime... More

I love Alta and while we were there this year we skied in snow almost everyday. The other SLC resorts got rain. Alta is the place to be!

What a fantastic ski area. Beautiful scenery. Amazing runs for all abilities. Amount of runs seems small but I think there are a lot more miles of unpisted areas so I think there are days of fun to be had. We only stayed 1 day but would have loved to have done more!
