First off props to Alta for being snowboard free. They should get 5 stars for this fact alone. That said there are plenty of other reasons to come here. The runs are more intermediate to advanced which is fine by me. If you are looking...More

We skied much of the beginnner, some intermediate and some advanced terrain at Alta. After two storms the skiing improved a great deal. Since our trip was after the Christmas holidays, the mountain was less crowded with lots of room on most of the trails....More

We took our two kids skiing at Alta yesterday (Dec. 28) and they may never want to go skiing in the mountains again. It took over two hours from our arrival until we finally got on a chair lift. The ticket line was 20+ minutes,...More

Highlights: A quick drive from Salt Lake city. Great place to ski and so close to Snowbird. You can get a joint pass for both ski resorts (a bit pricey, but when all or most runs are open, it's worth it). There are 2 nice...More

Nothing like skiing at Alta. Utah has the best snow. Alta is a great ski resort. I highly recommend!

Alta is skier only (no snowboarding) and also a great summer hiking region. Great nature viewing and easy walks.

Best ski area in the world, regardless of ability. But, you need to go there to ski, not eat at 5* restaurants, or lodge at 5* resorts. I'll take Alta and St. Anton, Austria anytime.

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
