This place is amazing. They consistently have great snow and they don't get the crowds that some of the surrounding mountains get. Fantastic terrain for all types of skiers.

Arrived in Utah in the morning and headed out to Alta in the afternoon. Afternoon lift ticket rates were more affordable than the other resorts close by. Good area to ski for beginners / intermediate.

Alta has lots of snow and lots of terrain for all skill levels. At the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Beautiful views of surrounding peaks. Efficient lifts. No snowboarders!
