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

We've travelled to Utah for short and long ski trips for many years. I've been here in every type of condition: whiteout, bluebird powder, skied-out, ice, spring...I've participated in Alta-Snowbird debates. The last time here, a friend gave us a tour after it had snowed. Alta kicks the crap out of almost any ski area on Earth when the snow... More

I live in the South and don't get to ski but once a year but I always come here. In my family we have different skiing abilities but everyone can find what they want at Alta! It's a skiers only area and that makes it a great place to learn to ski. It is a lovely drive up the canyon... More

It's not a resort... If you want that go to Deer Valley or Vail... Although I admit the tray passed hot chocolate served as you ski off the lift in Beaver Creek is pretty nice:-) Alta is small but skis big, gets more pow than anyone else in North America... And no snow boarders are allowed on the lifts (hike... More
