I have had a season pass at Alta for a number of years, and it is a great mountain. There are many areas to satisfy both the novice and advanced skier, and there is all kinds of terrain. The light tends to get flat, there are not many mogul runs, and some of the really good runs require some mountain... More

If there is any snow this place is world class and it keeps its snow 8,000ft and mostly north facing.

Alta is the greatest ski resort in Utah. Alta has a vast amount and variety of terrain to suit every level skier. It is one of the few resorts that prohibits snowboarding so the conditions and snow surface are superior to other resorts. It has groomed and natural trails and very long runs. This historic resort is a treasure.

Great little mountain, our kids loved it. Really good value to grab a ski guide for the first afternoon to show you some sneaky trails off the big traverse. Kids ski school also really good value. On mountain food was awesome. We skied through the gate into the back bowls of Snowbird a couple times, just $20,highly recommend skiing there... More

We hiked Cecret Lake and the Albion base over the last few days. It is amazing! The wildflowers are beautiful. Would highly recommend the hikes to anyone wanting to see Utah at its best. We also saw lots of wildlife including deer and moose.

Loved the varied terrain, but unfortunately not all of it was open. One absolute gem of a powder day (at least 12 inches over night, probably closer to 20) and meant the slopes weren't destroyed after 2 or 3 runs as there were no snowboarders. Just felt so much safer especially with the kids. Also on the right hand side,... More
