ALTA

 

About Alta

Alta is one of America's oldest ski resorts, established in 1939 the small base town has developed organically over time, bringing together like-minded skiers who want a chance to take on some of Salt Lake City's most spectacular terrain.

Alta is one of few resorts that prohibits snowboarding, proud of their skiing heritage the tradition remains strong today. Despite the hard-core skier culture, Alta is welcoming of newcomers and provides a real sense of community the minute you arrive.

The mountain itself has 2,200 acres of skiable terrain and some of the best off-piste skiing in Utah. The terrain is geared towards intermediate and advanced skiers, locals say "If you can ski here, you can ski anywhere", we're inclined to agree.

Alta is also know for delivering one of the best end of season videos of 2017. We love this reenactment of John Denver's classic 'Dancing with the mountains'.
