We have been going here for last 5 years now. This place has best snow, charming atmosphere, great slops, lots of backcountry, black and blue runs. Also has decent runs for beginners as well. Ski school is excellent, both our kids learned ski at Alta Ski School. Child care is wonderful too. The best and it is ONLY for skiers!!

This is a ski only resort which is desirable. The terrain is challenging and well marked. Clubhouse is a bit dated and the food and beer was the most expensive on the trip.

The terrain at Alta is fantastic and well-serviced by reasonably quick lifts. Alta is in a fairly unique position where it catches and holds storms in its bowl. The end result is massive amounts of snow averaging over 500" every year! But, this also means fewer sunny days. I own 2 skis and 3 snowboards. All resorts are fun on... More

If you want the vive and feel of what it felt like to Ski 30 years ago, Alta is for you. Unlike many of the ski resorts that have merged and become mega resorts with $$$$ lift tickets, Alta has stuck to its roots. Here it is all about the skiing NOT the scene.

Came here for two days in January and had a fantastic time. The lift lines were way shorter than you would get at park city or deer valley. Lift passes were a little cheaper too. The runs were fun and there were plenty of groomers and tree runs. I would come back here over the others in the area for... More

Alta has lots of fun and challenging terrain, with hidden nooks and powder caches. Because it is ski-only, the snow surface stays in good shape longer, not as scraped off as can happen with snowboards.

Skied Alta, as well as dozens of other great mountains, many times. Alta is my pick for great terrain and the best, most consistent snow anywhere in-bounds on the continent.

We did not know anything about skiing, from the equipment you need to all the technique involved in putting a pair of skis. This is the right place to learn, the best snow we ever seen in United States, qualified people to tech you from the basics. We highly recommend to take ski lessons at the school there, our instructor... More

Alta is an awesome ski resort: incredible skiing, great people. My one complaint is the lack of foot rests on the lifts. I have a bad left knee and it just can't tolerate the weight of my skis and boots after a couple of hours. When I ski at the neighboring resort Snowbird, virtually all the lifts have foot rests....
