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!

We stayed at the Rustler and skied Alta January 3-6 (Tuesday-Friday). This being immediately after the holidays, no one was there. Even better, it snowed like crazy every day -- several feet while we were out. One day it was snowing so hard I didn't...More

We didn't intend to ski there but just to satisfy our curiosity to get to the end of 190 highway along Big Cottonwood canyon. It didn't take a lot of time. But when we got there we found blues sky, white snow and a lot...More

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

One of the many places to go during the winter. Personally I would prefer going to the canyons or Brighton..but if you're in the area it's not a bad spot.

This is the place. Best snow in the world, great trails, not crowded awesome scenery. Demo skis are the way to go - switch out and try new things all day long.

Alta is amazing, tons of terrain for everyone, well run, great skier etiquette, plenty of bowls and if the snow is good, hike up to Catherine's Pass -- stunning views, challenging terrain, beautiful fluffy pillowy powder goodness

I have skied here for many years and not much has changed. This area offers the most challenging skiing available in the little cottonwood area. Not much in the way of frills and no big gondolas or large chair lifts. Lots of black and double...More

Beautiful ski runs in a picturesque setting. Was very happy with how we were outfitted with brand new Head and Tyrolia rental gear. Rental prices quite reasonable.

The Collins and Sugarloaf lifts have safety bars as already noted. The Supreme lift is new and in all likelihood has safety bars. Off of Collins alone there is some of the best skiing in the world. You should have a fabulous... More
