Best season in 5 years. Great atmosphere, Great snow and great skiing. A truly brilliant place for the person who loves diversity in their ski runs. Family orientated, not pretentious at all. No snow boarders. Great experience!

Alta is the skiier's paradise, if you can only get there. It took 2 hours to get there from downtown the first day and nearly 2 hours back up the windy 2-lane road. The next day we waited in line for 2 1/2 hours before realizing an avalanche was blocking all traffic, closing the road all day. For parking I... More

Beautiful surroundings, great snow and indeed a ski resort like no other. Road could get very crowded during holidays or weekends.

Alta is Alta an old fashion ski mountain. We even had 13 inches of powder on the last day. Mountain is a must for advanced intermeidates to experts.

Loved skiing at Alta, lot of great runs. The weather was almost perfect except for some snow on Sunday. easy driving to Alta and the lifts were busy but did not take too long. Did not eat at Alta but seemed to have a lot of happy other skiers, totally recommended place to enjoy Utah snow... Thank you

Why does your page say snowboard and ski area when you don't allow snowboards? I bought my ticket and stood in line only to be rejected. Get rid of your "fake" snowboard team page and update your listing here to clearly show you don't allow snowboards.

Alta is a classic. Great snow, great skiing. No night life. It's all good but Alta gas become a victim of success. No longer can you ski Alta powder much of the day, now you must hike to get untracked snow after 11am. Just too many people. If you've never been here, GO! But if you're looking for a whole... More

In all my 35 years of skiing in the Alps and Rockies (the past 25 mostly in the Rockies), this is my #1 favourite resort. I am a good intermediate skier and have no trouble navigating most of the runs at Alta. Tree skiing is magical here. Another attraction is that snowboarders are not allowed. Only issue I have with...

Been skiing for over 35 years and finally made the trip to Alta last month. My finding - I'm an idiot for waiting this long. It is an absolute must if you have a strong passion for skiing. Perfect snow quality, diverse terrain, great technical spots mixed with variety of tree runs, reasonably fast groomers and plenty of easy access... More
