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 less powder than during the regular season. However, there were almost no lift lines. For those who have never skied Alta, it is great for all levels. They have a variety of nice wide green runs on multiple chairs, and then a range of blues that add some challenges either with steepness or deeper powder (less grooming). And for the avid skier, there is a ton of black diamonds and open chutes for the most adventerous. What is also great is that on most runs, there is an easier and harder way down, which means parties of different skill levels can temporarily split up and just meet up again at the bottom of the run, without having to just separate and meet at the lift.
But the best thing about Alta - no snowboarders!!!! For all those out there who haven't tried Utah or Alta skiing, get yourself out to the slopes next season for the greatest snow on Earth.
