I drove up to Alta in June. Even though it was not ski season, the drive was beautiful. It took about an hour to get to the end, but I did stop along the road a few times to enjoy the creek that flows down the canyon. There were a few places that had hiking trails as well. If you... More

The powder here is the best in North America. This resort is a must visit and much better snow than over the hill at Park City. For a skier this is heaven especially through the trees

Alta is sweet, it feels very retro and there is nothing wrong with that. There are some great areas I would love to explore more, particularly the bowl on the backside and Catherine's Area. The snow didn't hold up well enough for that in our spring conditions. I can't wait to go back and enjoy the steep blacks!

We love Alta. there was a lot of snow but no powder. We still had fun. We like to eat at Alf's and you should always get a pizza from Gold Miner's Daughter at least once while you are there.

Great skiing. Several different lodges to choose from. You can ski over to the Snowbird side of the mountain. The runs are long and fun. There are runs for every level of skier. Food is very pricey...to be expected I guess. Overall great place. Our family really enjoyed it.

Alta is one of the best ski areas right up there with Jackson Hole. Amazing expert terrain. Great snow conditions. Mineral Basin on the backside provides an entirely separate area to enjoy bowls, chutes and cliffs. Not an area for beginner skiers. Snowboarding not allowed. Great breakfast at the grill before a day of skiing. Close proximity to Salt Lake... More

If you are visiting the Salt Lake area for skiing, this one is a must! Short lift lines, great skiing experience. Various options for all levels of skiers. Higher altitude than many of the resorts so great snow, pretty much no matter what. Locals swear by it, not being a local, I do too!

I cannot wait to ski the mountain, but beginners beware this is a very challenging mountain. The conditions are amazing.

Great terrain with a nice variety of runs. Of all the places to ski in Utah it is an all around favorite. Never disappointed in the staff or facilities. The only variable is mother nature.

Alta is sensational! The mountain is conveniently located near Salt Lake City (about 40 minutes away), and it gets some of the best snowfall in all of Utah. As a family, we have spent three spring-skiing seasons here and absolutely love it! The prices are reasonable, the people are incredibly nice and helpful, ski school staff is fantastic, and it...
