Skiers Only!

A gorgeous resort with tons of fresh, lovely powder! I like the fact that it only allows skiers, no boarders! My family and I always have a great time there.

The family went to Utah for the 1st time. Everyone is an intermediate to expert skier. I do love this place. Its got varied, yet challenging terrain. Even though its "old school", it has everything that you could want in a ski resort at the right price. We are looking forward to coming back soon

These guys get blasted every year! Old school resort with some classic runs but the two different mountain sections can be kind of a pain to navigate sometimes. Definitely worth a visit as its a great resort but wouldn't recommend for a novice.

Absolutely worth the trip if you are a serious skier. Alta is the only major domestic resort that has zero debt, so they don't have to sell out the land for real estate. As such, there exists only a small handful of slopeside lodging options. So, what it might lack in terms of five diamond restaurants, it makes up with... More

Born and raised in Utah, I have grown up skiing at Alta and even now that I have left the state, I still try to come back and get at least one day up on the slopes. Went skiing with my father this past weekend as the season was winding down. Even in April, the skiing was good, though maybe... More

I always liked Alta, for it has Utah's most snowpack, till the end of the season. Longer lift lines, and Utah's highest prices, since it does not move as many people as Solitude, and it is skiers only. I like the back side, and have skied it in a blizzard, but beware of the top of one lift cliff, where... More

I have skied all over the world and I always want to get back to Alta. It's just a great mountain. Alta has the most snow, the best snow and never seems to be crowded. This is a mountain for real skiers. If you need to be pampered, then it's not for you. If want to spend you day skiing... More

I've skied all over the US and Alta has some of the best terrain, and easily the best snow, of anywhere I've been. There is hardly ever a lift line, the access is wonderful, and the people are great. If you call yourself a skier you MUST ski Alta.

TERRIFIC in every way! This place remains above the pack in ski resorts. Tradition matters, but modern comforts in all areas!
