Follow the road all the way up, onto the dirt road till you hit the campgrounds at the end. Beautiful views and wildflowers. Peaceful and quiet. Wildlife viewing.

Alta is for skiers and delivers amazing powder. The resort has terrain for all levels and always delivers on powder days. Little Cottonwood canyon can get crazy on a powder day so leave by 7am and head down by 3pm to beat the traffic.

This brunch was top of the line with so many great food choices. Great service and music also. So worth the ride there.

Unequaled snow conditions close to a major airport. What could be better? Don't fly into Denver and drive for hours, fly into SLC and drive 45 minutes. Not much night life, and no snowboards, Alta is for skiers!

I visit Alta nearly 30 days a year from the Delaware. It is very hard to find better snow conditions and terrain.

Alta seems to be a little more advanced, I would hesitate to take my family there that doesn't do steep and fast. Same with Snowbitd.
