Alta turns 70 next winter. Alta's place in the ski world is unique, its history storied. Alta's culture blends this past with the future as it presents, along with Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, America's first lift-served interconnect. Alta and pure, unspoiled skiing are synonymous. Alta's wide variety of terrain, breathtaking alpine scenery and superb snow conditions combine to create a unique setting. Alta continues to offer a ski-only experience.

Alta is a classic. Great snow, great skiing. No night life. It's all good but Alta gas become a victim of success. No longer can you ski Alta powder much of the day, now you must hike to get untracked snow after 11am. Just too many people. If you've never been here, GO! But if you're looking for a whole... More

In all my 35 years of skiing in the Alps and Rockies (the past 25 mostly in the Rockies), this is my #1 favourite resort. I am a good intermediate skier and have no trouble navigating most of the runs at Alta. Tree skiing is magical here. Another attraction is that snowboarders are not allowed. Only issue I have with...

Been skiing for over 35 years and finally made the trip to Alta last month. My finding - I'm an idiot for waiting this long. It is an absolute must if you have a strong passion for skiing. Perfect snow quality, diverse terrain, great technical spots mixed with variety of tree runs, reasonably fast groomers and plenty of easy access... More

The best snow on earth-welcome upgrades over the years include detachable chairs, faster ascents- but nothing can improve the spectacular views. Lots of traversing available for those whos enjoys powder hunting- one criticism is limited intermediate and beginning slopes. Grooming could be better to provide at least one packed run on most chairs so experts could ski parallel runs with... More

About 1 hour away from our hotel this awesome ski place is worth the trip to Utah. Fresh Powder and DEEP! Utah is getting pounded this year with snow..>Ski till July!!! The lifts are quick and efficient. One time I was going solo and they let me pair up with someone at the front of the line!!! Nice.... Gotta Ski... More

When thinking Park City area for skiing, I think Deer Valley, Solitude and Alta. Fact that two are skiers only ( Alta and Deer Valley) and two are in the cottonwoods (Alta and Solitude) shows my bias for both great snow and great atmosphere Alta is a serious mountain for serious skiers. Its BIG, its challenging and the snow is... More

Snowing on the day we were there so the visibility was somewhat limited. found some more sheltered runs off of the "Supreme" lift and had a great day. No snow boards is a good thing.

Snow, Snow, Terrain, Challenge, and more Snow I have been skiing here since 1979. The only thing that has changed is that they groom many of the descents and the ticket price had increased from around $10 to around $100 a day. The funny thing is that at around $100 today, it is a better bargain than it was back... More

Had a great time. I stayed at the Snowpine Lodge which I recommend for anyone who isn't a local to stay. Great trails with unbeatable snow.

I'll ski wherever this is snow, but despite living in Virginia, this is my local ski hill. When I am choosing where to go ski, or when I check on upcoming snow storms during a conference call at work, this is always the first place I check. And while some of my best friends are snow-boarders, it is nice to... More
