Not trying to start a war between skiers and boarders but it is extremely pleasant to have a mountain exclusively for skiers and Alta does it right. It is 'old school', the mountain is great no matter what your experience level. Many new things to discover on each visit. A local introduced me to Eagle's Nest today - excellent. There... More

There is a nice mix of runs here. The thing that we found strange was all of the roped off areas with limited openings to areas that were in bounds. Next to the openings were signs with dire warnings - cliffs, unmarked obstacles, double black runs, experts only. We finally decided to go thru one of these openings and what... More

This may be our favorite ski area and we have skied all over the west. We love the variety of terrain and the down to earth feel of the place. It is less expensive than the ritzier resorts and attracts friendly people who come to ski, not hang at a fancy resort. We actually drive 2 minutes up to Alta... More

We had a simply fabulous trip to Alta. From the shuttle ride in the morning until hitting the pillow, Little Cottonwood Canyon was perfect for us. We rented a condo and skied every day. Not much night life in that area which suited out group of three couples fine. Alta is incredible. One can ski an expert slope and have... More

This was our first time to Alta Ski Resort and we loved it, definitely worth the 45 min drive from PC. The surprising part was that they offered a vegetarian chili that was very good with other healthy lunch and snack options. Loved their recycling program and environment awareness. We didn't see this two years ago! Keep up the good... More

Best area for all forms of skiing. Great placement of lifts. Breathtaking views and best of all, no snowboarding allowed

Most skiers would enjoy Alta. There are only 7 lifts but the area makes good use of its space. It is sort of like a little sister appended to Snowbird. We skied there one day as a break from Snowbird. Better food and more food options on the hills than Snowbird.

Excellent very challenging skiing. Conditions were not optimal but still better than the east, although maybe not this year!

I was only there one day but it was just beautiful. I stayed on the beginner slopes. There is a discounted lift ticket for beginners but it was enough to keep my busy. Lots of hillsides to watch experienced skiers.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two days skiing in Alta. #1 - they don't allow snowboarders, which is awesome. #2 - there were a lot of locals, who we found to be very friendly giving us tips about where to eat. #3 - how great to be staying in downtown SLC and have a 45 minute drive to some of the...
